We will also release our first CD on our new American Modern Recordings (AMR) label, Powerhouse Pianists, featuring AME pianists Stephen Gosling and Blair McMillen and solo piano works by American composers Chester Biscardi, Lee Hyla, Eric Moe, Annie Gosfield, Mischa Zupko, Perry Townsend, George Tsontakis, Conlon Nancarrow, Joan Tower and David Rakowski.
