Notes and Editorial Reviews

Transcriptions, adaptations, transformations - how do composers reenvision the works of their colleagues? Indeed, repurposing the music of another composer is almost as old as composition itself and it can become a truly fascinating exploration when music from one medium is transferred to a different instrument. On this new CD, South African pianist Petronel Malan takes us on just such an excursion through the songs of Tchaikovsky, transfigured by several of his distinguished compatriots. Hearing these songs, some well-known others less so, in this new virtuoso setting will no doubt introduce many listeners to the hidden beauties of Tchaikovsky's songs and provide further evidence of Ms. Malan's creative and adventurous programming.
