Extractions: Since her nomination as 1994 Pro Piano Artist of the Year and her Alice Tully Hall recital debut in 1996, J.Y. Song has established herself as a musician with broad and idiosyncratic musical tastes. Critic Harris Goldsmith has noted her "truly astounding technical and imaginative resources," and has described her performances as "tigerishly intense" and "exquisite." In addition to her probing interpretations of traditional repertoire, J.Y. Song has received critical acclaim for her performances of twentieth-century music, and has established a large following among audiences at contemporary music festivals. Her recordings on the Pro Piano label, which have received rave reviews in international publications, include twentieth-century masterpieces by Debussy, Bartok, and the young Argentinean composer, Ezequiel Vinao. Billboard described the complete set of Debussy Etudes as a "gem," and In Tune remarked "besides sheer technique, Song displays magnificent intellect in all her mood painting." The Debussy Etudes recording was a "Desert Island Selection" in Gramophone Magazine's International Piano Quarterly. J.Y. Song was raised in Switzerland, where she studied at the Conservatoire de Geneve and the Conservatoire de Lausanne. She later attended Stanford University, graduating with distinction and honors with a bachelor of science in microbiology and immunology as well as a bachelor of arts in music. While doing research on malaria and co-authoring a paper which appeared in Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology, J.Y. Song received numerous musical awards from Stanford, including the Robert Golden Medal for excellence in performance and the prestigious Sudler Prize for outstanding achievement in the creative arts.
Extractions: BUY NOW Crotchet AmazonUK AmazonUS Bis, Hyperion, Marco Polo, CPO and Chandos have an enviably stable catalogue at what cost to them commercially I do wonder. Once they have recorded something it tends to stay available. More recently (well, the last five years) Hyperion, CPO, Marco Polo and Chandos have moved back catalogue into mid or bargain price categories. BIS tend to mark down prices only when issuing multi-CD sets (and there are some outstanding bargains including their Holmboe Symphonies and Medtner Piano Concertos though the latter are in fact a Danacord licensed arrangement). Otherwise BIS show long term commitment by keeping CDs in their catalogue for year after year. I can recall buying the LP of the Sallinen symphonies 1 and 3 - this was in the 1970s - and the counterpart CD is still there in Robert von Bahr's catalogue.

Extractions: Requiem by k is one of the most pompous pages in the worlds history of music, being a triumphant work from its very première at the Birmingham festival until today. As 2004 marks 100 years from the composers death, his Requiem is possibly the most suitable work for a worthy start of Glasperlenspiel festival.
