Notes and Editorial Reviews

Nadia Shapachenko’s latest release, ‘Quotations & Homages’ features world premiere recordings of works for solo piano, for piano and electronics, for speaking pianist, for piano with extended techniques, and collaborative works for six pianists inspired by a variety of earlier composers and works. These fascinating new pieces come from eight notable modern composers: Tom Flaherty, Missy Mazzoli, Vera Ivanova, James Matheson, Nick Norton, Adam Borecki, Daniel Felsenfeld, and Peter Yates. Pianist Nadia Shpachenko-Gottesman has performed extensively in solo recitals and with orchestras in major venues across North America, Europe, and Asia. Described by critics as a “truly inspiring and brilliant pianist… spellbinding in sensitivity and Read more mastery of technique,” Nadia enjoys bringing into the world things that are out of the box- powerful pieces that often possess unusual sonic qualities of instrumentation. Her previous album on Reference Recordings, ‘Woman at the New Piano,’ was nominated for Grammy Awards in three categories: Best Classical Compendium; Best Chamber Music/ Small Ensemble Performance, and as a part of the body of work in the Producer of the Year, Classical nomination for Marina A. Ledin and Victor Ledin. Read less
