This third disc of Amy Beach’s complete piano music, performed by Kirsten Johnson, represents her compositional output from 1907 to 1924. Amy Beach (American, 1867-1944) is one of the great woman composers of all time. Including the masterful Prelude and Fugue, op. 81, the concert piece Fantasia Fugata, op. 87, and many beguiling piano miniatures, this is a disc not to miss. Farewell Autumn and Dancing Leaves, op. 102, are world première recordings, as are also Lotus Isles (unpublished manuscript) and Blackbird Hills, op. 83. These forgotten pieces by this world-renowned composer are now available for the first time. The piano talents of Kirsten Johnson bring this music to life with technical brilliance, sympathetic interpretation and musical depth.
