Andrew Rangell's 2018 release, From the early 20th..., an album featuring pieces by Schoenberg, Nielsen, and Enescu, was dominated by Charles Ives' monumental "Concord" sonata. Volume 2 is intended as a more inclusive enlargement along these lines, featuring iconic works of Webern, Berg, Scriabin, and Ravel, alongside lesser-known gems by Sibelius, Mompou, and Prokofiev. A fanciful, if tangential, addition to the program is Bill Evans' soulful Turn out the Stars (with its echoes of Ravel).
