Editorial Reviews

A coming together of two artists with enormous followings Valentina Lisitsa, with her dazzling artistry and hundreds of thousands of followers on YouTube, and Michael Nyman, with his hugely popular film soundtracks.

This release, in the year of Nyman s 70th birthday, features tracks from his multi-award-winning score for the 1993 smash hit film The Piano.

Acclaimed for his music s innovation, punchy simplicity and universal appeal, Nyman, during his career as a music critic, coined the term minimalism for an emergent musical genre one to which he would make extensive contributions in many of his early scores and inspire a vast global audience.

Valentina Lisitsa enters into the spirit of The Piano by re-creating the iconic image of the piano on the beach for the album s cover.

The disc is packed full with 77 minutes of material, full of irresistible energy. The album includes all ten solo piano transcriptions from The Piano, together on one album for the first time.

The companion digital release, containing an extra half-hour of music, represents complete recordings of Nyman s published music for solo piano, including both the 1993 and 1998 versions of the Heart Asks Pleasure First and Big My Secret (from The Piano).

I ordinarily am not a big fan of Nyman, but he does write some nice stuff. What is important here is the touch Valentina brings to the music. Yes, minimalism can have emotion! My wife and I were comparing this disc to some other classical music. A little bit of Schubert impromptu, done Glass style. I'd recommend buying it because it is an example of how I think minimalistic music should be played.

My daughter is an accomplished piano student and she, like everyone else, found Valentina on Youtube and was captivated by her playing. We have attended her concerts in Boca Raton, Florida and NYC. Of course, we previously were thrilled with her performance of classical works so the change to a contemporary composer would be interesting. Personally, I am delighted with this recording. I liked Nyman's work before but this album takes it over the top. Valentina performs with her usual depth of interpretation and emotion. This is a wonderful piece of music!

Valentina Lisitsa is an amazing pianist. In my non-expert opinion she will be remembered in history along with those such as Arthur Rubinstein, Martha Argerich, and the like. Her classical works are what I love the most but was very interested in her choice of Nyman. I must say that she does a superb job with Chasing Pianos as I am sure Michael Nyman would profess himself. This is a purchase you will never regret and I highly recommend you purchasing it. Simply amazing artist. Watch her youtube videos and you will see for yourself. I really hope to see her in concert one of these days...like at the new fantastic Tobin center in San Antonio. LOL

I heard an interview with Valentina Lisitsa on NPR and was so intrigued that I had to own one of her albums. She is an amazing pianist.
