* Set consists of Foldover cover with box containing 4 black cardboard-jacketed CDs and a 27-page booklet * Panorama of American Piano Music is a comprehensive survey of 20th century piano works, beginning with Ives’ “The Alcotts” movement from the Concord Sonata (1911) through 1991. Every decade is represented with works from between those years. Pianist Yvar Mikhashoff (1941–93) was a master at presenting marathon concerts on a single theme. The Panorama was one of them, exploring the remarkable diversity of 20th century American music, from serialism to minimalism, populist to avant garde experimentalism, short works for amateur pianists to virtuoso pieces. Never before has such a survey of piano music been represented. Importantly, Mikhashoff often chose to represent composers not by their well known works but by selecting unusual or unknown, sometimes taken from manuscript scores. 62 works, presented in chronological order, from composers Antheil to Zappa, written between the years 1911-91. Specially priced deluxe 4-CD set in slipcase with 28-page book containing many photos. Extensive liner notes by Drew Massey, Yvar Mikhashoff and Brian Brandt.
