Pasternack makes you understand why, with a riveting, intense performance, more austere and thus grander than any since the composer's own magnificent version from 78s. Copland's friend Leo Smit recorded a more comprehensive collection of his piano music, worth having for its completeness. But Pasternack's playing serves the music even better than Smit's. The recorded sound is excellent and so are the program notes.

Aaron Copland Composer. Benjamin Pasternack (pf). Aaron Copland Composer. Aaron Copland’s three major piano works span the most productive decades of his life, taking us from the austere rigour of the 1930 Variations to the Sonata’s lyric introspection and the epic visionary scale of the 1957 Fantasy. Benjamin Pasternack shows a clear ease and affinity. In the Variations he brings out the tensile angular beauty and surely assays the shifts from withdrawn solace to rhythmic swagger. Though the bravura sections are rendered more as a toccata-like scherzo than with high-flying virtuosity, he plays with command and force

The Piano Fantasy (1955-1957) represents Copland's personal take on twelve-tone music (he used only a 10-note row, for one thing), and his gift for catchy motives is in evidence despite the creatively restrictive environment. A fine choice for Copland fans.
