About the artist and the album...
American pianist James W. Iman has distinguished himself as a specialist in 20th and 21st century repertoire and frequently performs music of the Second Viennese, Darmstadt, and New York schools. Audiences have called his playing “direct,” “incisive,” “thoughtful,” and “compelling.” His appearances on WQED-FM and with Tuesday Musical have made him a fixture of Pittsburgh’s classical music scene.
