Mr Riesman’s solo piano transcription of The Hours score proved so successful that Orange Mountain Music was inspired to approach Riesman again to make an arrangement of Glass’ haunting score to Todd Browning’s 1931 classic Dracula which starred Bela Lugosi.

Born in Munich in 1991, Pacini began her studies at the age of ten as a pupil of Karl-Heinz Kämmerling at the Salzburg Mozarteum, where she was accepted two years later by the newly founded Institute for Highly Gifted Students. From 2007 she continued her studies in master classes given by Pavel Gililov, completing her diploma in 2011 with honours. In 2010 she became acquainted with Martha Argerich, who invited her the following year to give a recital as part of the Martha Argerich Project in Lugano and who has since become an important figure in the young pianist’s career.

"…Stefan Irmer has clearly studied and truly learned this music. So often on a disc of rarely performed music one gets the feeling that the pianist is sight-reading the notes in order to make a recording of previously unrecorded music. Not so here. Irmer performs with wonderful clarity, variety of tone, panache, and commitment. He truly sells the music.
Natural recorded sound, capturing very well the 1901 Steinway used for the recording, rounds out a delightful disc." ~Fanfare

From the start of his intermittent side career as a jazz pianist, esteemed conductor and composer Andre Previn has shown more feeling for the form than most classical artists who cross over. Going beyond a recreational involvement in improvised music, he has deepened his playing since skimming stylistic surfaces on his bestselling My Fair Lady album of nearly 50 years ago. Now 78, he gives us what may be his most satisfying jazz recording in Alone: Ballads for Solo Piano. The solo format allows him to reflect his debt to piano masters including Art Tatum, Erroll Garner, and Bud Powell in ways his work with trios and combos hasn't, while showing off his super-refined lyrical touch with its sophisticated sense of color.

Louis Landon is a composer and Steinway Artist, formerly of New York and currently of Sedona, who has dedicated his life to music. His passion is for peace.

For the past 27 years, through his production company, Landon Music, he has written and produced music for film, video, and commercials, including three years of "best plays" and "bloopers" commercials for the National Basketball Association. Not long ago, Landon realized that his music - the solo piano compositions that bring him so much joy and peace, could surely bring joy, and particularly peace, to millions around the world.

Label: Grand Piano | Tracks: 10 | Rls.date: 2016

The four works in this second of three volumes devoted to Enescu's piano music range over a period of more than 30 years. The earliest is the joyful, ebullient Suite "Des cloches sonores", Op. 10 which covers a wide expressive range including use of the melancholy Romanian song, the doina. The Piano Sonata No. 3, Op. 24 is a mercurial, puckish works, both spiritred and contemplative, and the Piece sure le nom de Faure is a charming souvenir from one composer to another.

Andrzej Panufnik once wrote ‘Music gets its eternal beauty from an ideal balance of emotion and intellect’. Although Panufnik is primarily known as a composer of symphonies and large-scale orchestral pieces, his three original works for solo piano perfectly illustrate this motto. They are all highly crafted, demonstrating the composer’s fascination with mirror forms and symmetrical patterns.

This album is a collection of some of the most beautiful and virtuosic music from the first-half of the 19th century from arguably the two greatest composer/performers of the period – Beethoven and Liszt. From Beethoven’s Waldstein Sonata, one of his most technically challenging works, to works including Liszt’s Liebestraum No. 3 and the transcription of Wagner’s Tannhäuser overture, this is a formidable debut.

Piano music occupies an important place within the oeuvre of Toru Takemitsu (1930-1996). His first publicly performed piece was a work for the piano - Lento in Due Mouimenti - and he would continue to compose for the instrument throughout his career. Hence, we can follow the development of his compositional style through his piano music - tracing, for example, the evolution of his personal harmonic language or his increasing timbral consciousness.

Style: New Age | Label: Tim Neumark

"Moments, Op. 7" is pianist/composer Tim Neumark’s eighth album and his second album this year. Twelve of the thirteen tracks are solo piano, but the lucky thirteenth is a fully orchestrated arrangement of Neumark’s first composition, “Beginnings.” It was included as a piano solo on his debut album, "Biography," but Neumark always envisioned the piece as an orchestral work. With Doug Hammer’s help, that dream has become a reality for the whole world to hear! The music on Moments was inspired by those unplanned moments in life that mean so much and truly define what life is all about. Most of the music on this album is on the lighter, happier side, strongly influenced by life with two very young daughters and a couple of playful cats. The liner notes explain where these moments came from. Some are personal experiences and some are other people’s moments that affected Neumark enough to compose music for them. Although classical music has a strong influence, Neumark’s music isn’t overly flashy, but is confident, lyrical and heartfelt.
