Michael Chertock, chair of the piano department at the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati, and who appeared as piano soloist in selections on both Music for Great Films of the Silent Era CDs, shares that “William Perry’s music is a perfect reflection of his personality: irrepressibly enthusiastic, colorful, optimistic and lyrical. My first opportunity to play the piano parts of the rhapsodies for Bill was actually over the phone! Bill is a very generous spirit, and he made only a few small suggestions about tempi and phrasing.
