Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Here are 12 piano pieces played in an unusually warm and personal way in the highest resolution surround sound. If you have a Blu-Ray player, you will hear a piano sound that is extraordinarily accurate. There is also a hybrid multi-channel SACD of the same program included for those who don’t have a Blu-Ray player. Each piece on this recording describes a part of a day, always in the same musical key of D-flat. The accompanying book includes stories about why the pieces were written; what the composer intends the piece to say; what pianists feel about the piece and what has been passed on orally from composer to performer. For those with a Blu-Ray player, the realistic sound on this recording will come as a revelation.
