Scott Wheeler: Wasting the Night
Wonderful songs by Scott Wheeler featuring 4 fabulous singers: Susanna Phillips, Krista River, Joseph Kaiser, and William Sharpe
“Accompanying at the piano throughout [on Scott Wheeler’s CD of songs] is Donald Berman in one marvelously subtle performance after another, gracefully reciprocating the contrasting styles of the four singers while responding to the emotional ebb and flow of the material with perfectly pitched nuance and knowingness.” - Classical Review
Wheeler's music is imaginative, varied, pungent, lyrical...

Americans in Rome: Music by Fellows of the
Fanfare has named "Americans in Rome: Music by Fellows of the American Academy in Rome" on its 2009 "Want List".
In 1997, the American pianist Donald Berman forced open three old file cabinets in a musty attic above the Janiculum, the highest hill within walled Rome, and found enough years of work for each of his 10 fingers...Berman is a terrific pianist... In short, an impressive resurrection.
San Francisco Classical Voice (June 2009)
"I cannot think of another set of recordings that so deftly and thoughtfully attempts an overview of the evolution of American art music, in all of its range and great energy."
FANFARE MAGAZINE (May/June 2009)
The four-CD set, Americans in Rome, attempts an overview of the evolution of American art music, in all of its range and great energy, with music from
the American Academy in Rome from 1929 and continuing to nearly the present.
With nearly five hours of material, the listener is tempted to answer the
very question of what defines American music. It may ultimately be
unanswerable, but it is an exhilarating journey nevertheless.

- Andy Hamilton, "Wire" February 2009

- James North, FANFARE March 2009
