Just Opened: Week of April 21, 2014

 More virtuosic piano releases as we continue bringing you "A Pleasure of Pianos" - new piano releases, Just Opened, after the news at noon in April.


BEETHOVEN GRANADOS SCHUMANN

A BRIDGE TO BACH
Andrew Rangell, piano
BRIDGE 9216
ISBN# 0 90404 92162 9
More Information on Andrew Rangell
Andrew Rangell just continues to amaze.  Thoughtful and "clean" interpretations...  I find myself reaching for his CDs time and time again.  Given that he records for several labels, including being a Steinway and Sons artist, I am clearly not alone in my esteem for his work.
RECITAL FAVORITES BY NISSMAN VOL. VIII
Barbara Nissman, piano
Pierian 0046

With an extensive, luminous career, Nissman is able to delight us with recordings that delight her...  Volume 8 of a continuing series.
TODD CROW
The BBC Recordings Volume 2
Todd Crow, piano
MSR 1487
ISBN# 6 81585 14872 3

Todd Crows releases cover such an unusual "map" of musical territory, he has become a special musical "crush" of mine.  Another recent release features Liszt's solo piano version of Berlioz's Symphony Fantastique.
