The American composer Arthur Farwell (18721952) is best remembered as the leading member of a group of Indianists who used Native American tribal melodies in their own compositions. In fact, Farwells stylistic range was much wider than is realised today, as this third album in Lisa Thomas pioneering survey of his piano music demonstrates. It reveals the influence of both Debussy and Skryabin, perhaps even Busoni and, in the two Navajo War Dances here, intriguing parallels with Bartók.
