William Doppmann, a graduate of the University of Michigan, has carved a distinguished career as a concert artist throughout the world. As a composer, he brings additional insight to interpretations, as his disc of four American piano sonatas illustrates. He selected four representative works, written from 1895 to 1949; Edward MacDowell’s Sonata No. 2 (“Eroica”), Charles Griffes’s Sonata , Ross Lee Finney’s Sonata No. 4 (“Christmastime 1945”) and Samuel Barber’s Sonata Op. 26. Doppmann comments that “Formerly, the two heroic four movement sonatas (the MacDowell, in an earlier format, had programmatic titles relating the whole to the legend of Arthur) move from sonata allegro structures through scherzos and slow movements to culminating fast-paced finales (the Barber ends with a triumphant fugue). The shorter sonatas, chronologically the middle two . . . each representative of different styles within the continuum, present multisectional music breathed out ‘in one breath’ - a condensation of the time-scale. Cross-cutting these formal procedures, two sonatas end in fierce bursts of energy (Griffes and Barber), two quietly subside with a feeling of meditation and gathering repose” (Doppmann, liner notes).

The performance is magnificent, with a rich tone, non-strident fortissimos, absolute clarity, and control. This disc belongs especially in libraries, both academic and private, and also in personal collections of music lovers.

Sample this album. Title by Artist. William Doppmann Springfield, Massachusetts, October 10, 1934 - Honokaa, Hawaii, January 27, 2013 was an American concert pianist and composer. American Piano Sonatas by Howard Hanson, William Schirmer, and Carlisle Floyd. Howard Hanson wrote his only piano sonata in 1919, prior to his orchestral compositions, and before his four decade stint as the director of the Eastman School of Music, but the work has his musical fingerprints all over it. The heart on sleeve emotional heft sounds especially Brahmsian here, with strong pre-echoes of the symphonies to come, especially the Symphony No. Surprisingly for a composer of this stature, there is only one other recording in the current catalogue, but fortunately, Scott Watkins plays it splendidly, bringing a fine balance of colorful tonality and elegance to a work.
