Notes & Reviews:

In addition to being a renowned new music pianist, Margaret Leng Tan is the foremost specialist at the toy piano. She has concertized worldwide with her miniature instruments, bestowing them with serious music status in repertoire both written for her and arrangements. For this disc of attractive and challenging music, Ms. Tan performs Cage's classic "Suite for Toy Piano" plus her arrangement of Cage's seminal "Dream" for toy & grand piano (a work that foreshadowed new age music); and her arrangement for voice and toy instruments of a recent song by George Crumb.
