Walter Piston (1894-1976, American)

In the 20th century Piston was considered an important American composer. Only the old-timers remember.

Sonatina for violin and piano (1945) by Robert Davidovici and Steven de Groote, in “Robert Davidovici, violin”, New World Records 334-2 (1987) with works of Hugh Aitken, Copland, Paul Schoenfield, Gunther Schuller.

I’ve reviewed far more Piston on than I’ve yet imported here, especially among his orchestral works.
