Ingenious rhythmic treatments, sparkling melodic and harmonic devices, and a brilliant cadenza demonstrate the creative resourcefulness that makes Rocherolle one of America's leading composers. Drawing from her rich New Orleans roots, she creates a dramatic work for two pianos with a touch of Gershwin, a hint of jazz, and an imaginatively developed blues theme permeating throughout. This will be a great addition to any pianist's collection.

    This is one momentous piece in Ms. Rocherolle's career. Quiet to charging to maestoso jazz themes will keep you in musical bliss. Someday I hope this piece will be rated among other top American-composed music. And by all means try her other compositions -- there all fantastic. She replied...

    to an e-mail I sent her, and she says "As for my name, it is pronounced 'U-sha-knee' 'RO-sha-roll' (Both have the accent on the first syllable)".
