Notes & Reviews:

Finnish pianist Anna Kuvaja began her impressive record early on in her career. In 2006, she graduated with a master's degree from the Sibelius Academy, and received for her diploma recital the highest possible grade. Anna tours as a soloist, Lied pianist, and chamber artist throughout Europe and the United States. She is particularly passionate about performing chamber music. Anna writes of this project: "As this CD, my debut recording, began to take shape, I felt it important to choose works that felt natural for me as a musician and which would also form a rounded whole as a piano recital. The works by well-known piano composers and Finnish composers which I interpret merge together so as to blur the underlying reflections between them... "
