Louis Moreau Gottschalk (1829-69) was the first important American composer to fuse European classical piano music with American cultural influences, including folk music, the music of slaves, and Latin American dances. Although still revered for his anticipation of elements of Ragtime and Harlem Stride Piano, he owed his greatest musical debt to Chopin. On this recording we hear memorable and catchy tunes as well as considerable harmonic ingenuity. It includes some of his finest pieces, such as the deliciously Gallic Pasquinade, the wonderfully expressive Le Banjo and, in its world premiere recording, Steven Mayer’s solo piano arrangement of La Nuit des Tropiques. A Grand Prix du Disque winner, Mr. Mayer has performed the fiendishly difficult solos of Art Tatum alongside Mozart, Liszt and Ives worldwide. He has been Professor at the Manhattan School of Music and the Int’l Keyboard Institute and Festival at Mannes in New York and the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music.
