Joanne Polk turns her attention to an important early 20th-century composer and pianist, Earl Wild. In addition to a busy career as a solo and orchestra pianist, Wild was also a composer and arranger, known in particular for his transcriptions of the music of George Gershwin. Polk’s new album features many of these transcriptions as well as an original Wild composition.
