David Holzman's first Stefan Wolpe CD (BRIDGE 9116) was a 2003 Grammy Nominee in the "Best Solo Instrumental Performance" category, and then went on to win AFIM's INDIE Award as "Best Classical CD of 2003." Holzman now follows that disc up with a new Wolpe recital spanning 33 years of the composer's work. Featured on this disc is the first complete recording of Wolpe's monumental Four Studies on Basic Rows (1935-36), including Wolpe's most frequently recorded piano piece, "Passacaglia". Also included are pieces from Wolpe's German, Palestinian and American periods, a varied program ranging from the experimental to works for students. Throughout, Holzman plays with the intensity and vision that has made him the world's leading authority on Wolpe's keyboard music.
