Gordon Sherwood Piano Works, Vol. I

Artist : Gordon Sherwood
Genre : Piano

First recording of the complete piano works of the contemporary American composer Gordon Sherwood; Volume I
Piano: Masha Dimitrieva

Gordon Sherwood’s broad compositional output is evident in his compositions for piano.
The musical influences of his extensive travels throughout his life combine with compositional styles from the centuries to American jazz rhythms. And despite all the reminiscence, the special nature of the composer Gordon Sherwood, who surprises with something new, becomes clear again and again. Characteristic of his early works for piano are atonal melodies with rapid rhythmic changes. Later, he complements these with jazz elements, creating extremely interesting links between different musical styles and epochs. Overall, polyphony occupies a special place in his piano works, which is due not least to his appreciation of Bach.
