Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Referring to her specialty in piano music of forgotten pioneering American composers, Classics Today wrote, 'Johnson's loving mastery of this music and skillful, nuanced pianism are a delight.' On this release she fills the long-standing gap in Foote's discography of complete piano music - much of it receiving its first recording.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
The music is tonally conservative and romantic, well-crafted and accessible, and Johnson engages these works with eloquence and expression. Johnson remedies this with devotion. Most of Foote's piano works sound cheerful and pleasant. These are delightful works. With remarkable thoroughness, Johnson has indubitably produced a recording of American composer Foote's complete piano oeuvre that will lay the groundwork for future studies and recordings.
