American Sonatas for Violin and Piano


Drs. Ching-Yi Lin and Zachary Lopes released their new CD entitled American Sonatas for Violin and Piano: Bolcom, Corigliano, Ives.  It includes Charles Ives’ Sonata No. 2, William Bolcom’s Sonata No. 2, and John Corigliano’s Sonata.  In his program notes, Dr. David Lasocki from Indiana University writes: “Besides being American composers, and two of them coming into this world in the same year, Ives, Bolcom, and Corigliano have something else in common: they all enjoy mixing classical and popular music, as well as tonal and atonal passages, in a unique manner.”  Funding for this CD was provided by the WKU Research & Creative Activities Programand the Confucius Institute at WKU.  You can hear this recording online at Naxos and also purchase it from MSR Classics,
