Notes & Reviews:

As the title suggests, New Friends / Old Friends is a reflective and thoughtful survey of musical styles (both classical and contemporary) that have enriched Deon Nielsen Price's composing and performing career - both currently (New Friends) and in the past (Old Friends). In May 2013, Price was commissioned by Park City (Utah) Dance to compose the music for a ballet based on the French-folktale Toads and Diamonds. The music, consisting of fifteen different tableaus, is inspired by a well-known French folk song and by various musical styles - from classical Viennese and late 19th century salon to contemporary - to represent the story's characters and dances. Women in Christ's Line, a three movement piano work composed in 2004, contains innovative piano techniques, including arm clusters, crossed hands, and independence of keys in each hand. Several works by the Great Masters have become Deon Price's "Old Friends" which she has literally played in concerts globally. Among these are Debussy's Clair De Lune and Feux D'Artifice, and several Chopin works including Fantaise Impromptu, Op. 66; Revolutionary Etude in C Minor, Op. 10/12; Cello Etude in C Sharp Minor Op. 25/7; and the Black Key Etude in G Flat Major, Op. 10/5.
