Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Performed by 2012 Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient Conrad Tao, who was also included on Forbes' "30 Under 30: The Youngest Stars In The Music Business" list (the only classical musician on the list!), this album comprises all works for piano solo composed by internationally acclaimed American composer Gordon Getty between the nineteen sixties and today.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Tao's recording of Getty's piano pieces offers a hearing of seven works spanning the breadth of the composer-philanthropist's career. The miniatures on this recording are playful and simplistic. I have no complaints about Tao's playing. He favors clean lines and straightforward clarity. This is light, brief, and pleasing.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Skywalker Sound, Skywalker Ranch, California, USA (07/2012).
