Album Notes
By Ted Shen

Anthony Ranieri is one of those classical performers and composers who work largely outside academia and the establishment concert circuit. Which is to say he's not as well known as he ought to be. A graduate of Lake Forest College, he's spent the last 35 years learning his craft in what some might regard as a haphazard fashion. He's studied composition at area conservatories, electronic music at Indiana University, and piano at Northwestern. And he's apprenticed as a recording engineer. These days he makes a living as a piano coach. Infatuated with exotic instruments, Ranieri knows how to play the gamelan and the shakuhachi (an ancient Japanese bamboo flute); his latest interest is the sitar. If he weren't talented he might be accused of dilettantism. But he is talented, as his body of eclectic compositions demonstrates.

(This is a live performance from the Harold Washington Library in Chicago.)
