Notes & Reviews:

Andrew Russo is a 2006 Grammy nominee for his Black Box recording of the music of popular American composer John Corigliano! A number of records feature recitals of short encore piano pieces, mostly nineteenth-century trifl es. Dirty Little Secret is a record with a similar structure-that is, a piano album with many short tracks. However, it reflects both a repertoire and attitude that belong to this century of soundbites, downloads, and the cynical sarcasm of Generation X. A versatile, prolific artist both onstage and in the recording studio, American pianist Andrew Russo has made a name for himself through his work with many of today's leading composers in the United States and Europe. As a recitalist, Russo's programs frequently feature premieres. Trained classically at the Juilliard School and the Hochschule fur Musik und Theater Mendelssohn in Leipzig, Russo pursued further specialized training in Paris with Frederic Chiu. Russo was the first pianist to play inside the piano (plucking the strings) at the Van Cliburn competition when he performed a work by George Crumb there in 2001. In addition to his extensive solo activities, Russo is a member of the piano/cello/percussion trio Real Quiet, a group much involved in commissioning new music.
