Notes & Reviews:

This album combines Mussorgsky's masterwork for piano Pictures at an Exhibition with contemporary vignettes from Elliott Carter, David Lang Toru Takemitsu and a work by Conrad Tao himself in a world premiere recording.

At just 21 years of age Conrad Tao is already a seasoned performer, multi-award winner and festival curator, with a unique approach to programming. Dubbed a musician of "probing intellect and open-hearted vision" by the New York Times and a "thoughtful and mature composer" by NPR.
