*****
William Masselos was one of the greatest performers of American piano music in the 1950s. His recording of Charles Ives' First Piano Sonata is still my personal reference standard. Here we find him playing three important works--two of them from, I believe, around 1920. Charles Tomlinson Griffes was on his way from Impressionist to full-fledged modernist when he wrote his craggy, brilliant Piano Sonata. Dane Rudhyar, possibly the most neglected American modernist, is represented with "Granites," a work that shows him a true kindred spirit of Carl Ruggles. Weber's "Episodes" are well worth your hearing. But the revolution remembered on this disc is found in the first two of the three works on it. If you're looking for a rewarding musical adventure, buy this album.
