American pianist Benjamin Pasternack presents piano music inspired by African Americans and Native Americans, including two rarities by Arthur Farwell, who as leader of the "Indianists" movement deserves to be known as the American Bartok.

The program includes Dvořák's Humoresques in F and G-flat and an excerpt from his American Suite; Busoni's Indian Diary No. 2; Farwell's Pawnee Horses and Navajo War Dance No. 2; and Bernstein/Pasternack's On the Town Dances.
