Rzewski's piano music performed by the composer.,
This review is from: Rzewski Plays Rzewski (Audio CD)
As a set of interpretations of his own pieces by a formidably gifted pianist and composer whose works are both catchy and profound, politically charged and hopeful, dissonant and bluesy, I can highly recommend this set.
There are performances of North American Ballads, De Profundis, the variations on The People United Will Never Be Defeated, three discs of a work in progress The Road, and other pieces, representing about three quarters of Rzewski's piano works from 1975-1999.
A booklet features Rzewski's explanatory notes- not at all heavy going- and a long useful essay by Christian Wolff.
You don't need to be a lefty to appreciate this music!
