Notes and Editorial Reviews
This is a re-issue of one of the most popular piano collections ever produced by the CBC. The 15 selections by Chopin, Liszt, Schumann, Debussy, Mendelssohn, Rachmaninoff and Brahms have been carefully chosen by renowned Canadian pianist Jane Coop. The performances are superb, and the sound is beautiful and evocative. This is a collection that every piano fan and every piano student will want to have in his/her library. Skylark Music plans to release Volume 2 next year. 'It is difficult to pinpoint what makes this pianist so expressive, for in her playing everything works together...Coop has that extra something that lets a pianist become a poet.' - Montreal Gazette
