Notes & Reviews:

The six composers featured on pianist Gloria Cheng's album entitled Montage are among today's most sought-after creators of film music - composers that have amply demonstrated their skill at creating mood and propelling action. However, when working away from the movie screen, what melodies, harmonies, and cadences might haunt their private dreams? Cheng offers an answer to those questions with compelling first recordings of their works for solo piano, a medium that can often reveal a composer's truest voice.
