Notes & Reviews:

"Penneys offers an extraordinary collection of performances displaying an astonishing control over piano sound. It is absolutely gorgeous and full of unimaginable colors. She sings through the instrument, seemingly without effort. Her playing is simply revelatory." - American Record Guide

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Rebecca Pennys (1948-) is an American pianist of Russian descent. She is regarded as an accomplished virtuoso and has an impressive set of performances and recordings. It is well annotated, with much historical and biographical information. The recording is rich and smooth, with a firm bass - fine for Schumann. The piano is a Steinway. The Schumann pieces are splendidly played and beautifully shaped. Both of them are about as good as they come, both musically and sonically.
