Latest Piano Albums


Steven Masi:
Ballades & Other Musings

Steven Masi's previous albums have focused on Germanic repertoire – a 10-disc recording of the complete Beethoven Sonatas and recordings of late works by Schubert and Brahms. With this album he shifts focus, exploring Chopin and Debussy and contemporary pieces by Sarah Kirkland Snider, whose stirring musical language blends quite seamlessly with the Romantic and Impressionist repertoire.

Yuja Wang:
The Vienna Recital

Yuja Wang proves her wide-ranging musical imagination on this eclectic and unpredictably programmed album, recorded live in Vienna in 2022. She displays fiery virtuosity in jazzy preludes by Nikolai Kapustin and complex etudes by György Ligeti, as well as mature musicality in masterpieces by Beethoven, Scriabin, and Albéniz. The several encores span the history of music from Gluck to Glass.

Sandro Russo:
Liszt – Transcendental Etudes

"Whether or not Liszt may have conceived the 12 Transcendental Etudes to be performed as a cycle, their programmatic elements…could give one almost the sense of an entire opera's being performed at the piano!" writes Sandro Russo. He undertook this epic project with some doubt; according to Russo the etudes often work better live – feeding from the energy of the audience and the performers’ adrenaline.

Yuki Negishi:
Preludes – Arensky, Rachmaninoff, Ravel, Gershwin

Yuki Negishi plays a selection of early 20th-century Preludes on her second solo album. Arensky's 12 Preludes Op. 63 are juxtaposed with the much more famous 10 Preludes Op. 23 by his student Rachmaninoff – both collections were published in 1903. They are followed by Ravel's beautiful single Prelude (1913) and Gershwin's jazzy collection of Three Preludes (1926).
