Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new release is Volume One in a series which will explore the life of renowned pianist Rebecca Penneys. She writes of this release: “My passion has been about living a life in music through teaching and performing. As I experience my eighth decade, the dvd project gives me an opportunity to present various composers and personal comments on subjects that are very near and dear to me. These are my gifts to young pianists and piano teachers, and to a future I will not see or hear. I feel inspired exploring relationships between motion and emotion with sound, the voice of the piano, as the primary carrier of emotion against a backdrop of different performance traditions. Each [release] has a particular emphasis that I hope future Read more generations of pianists and piano lovers will cherish. On [volume] one, I perform some of my favorite works by Brahms, Debussy and De Falla and I also describe vision, mission and legacy themes of the Rebecca Penneys Piano Festival. Read less
