ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Description
In Roses in Winter, love appears in various guises: from innocent charm to unbridled passion, tender reminiscence to romantic seduction, filial love to spiritual transcendence. Each piece relates to the theme of love, beauty and rebirth in the midst of illness and death.

Roses in Winter is a tribute to Jana Ting's father and others affected by cancer. Jana believes we are connected by common experiences. The experience of a loved one facing cancer is one that hits home and changes a family. She hopes to remind us that love can shine through in moments of darkness.

Jana Ting donates net proceeds from her concerts and CDs to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and her father's memorial fund at University of Winnipeg in Canada.

Bio
Graduating at 17 with an Associateship Diploma in Piano Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Jana Ting decided to pursue systems design engineering at the University of Waterloo in Canada. There, she combined her love of music with science by working on computerized Braille music and recording the chamber music concerts for radio broadcast.

While working as a computer engineer in New York and London, England, Jana explored Indian ragas with American composer Michael Harrison and jazz piano with Charles Sibirsky and Ralph Lewars.

Her father's illness inspired Jana to place music and writing before engineering. Jana went on to earn a Trinity Licentiate in Piano Performance, an Associateship Diploma in Piano Teaching and perform recitals in London, England and Winnipeg, Canada.

Today, Jana teaches, performs and facilitates workshops on developing personal creativity. She is also currently writing a book on practise and performance tips for amateur musicians.

John Iverson - CKUW

Jana Ting is an excellent pianist, filled with passion and spirit!
This is not just another disc of classical solo piano music among the plethora of them available in this genre. This album is special for a number of very good reasons in addition to the extremely worthy causes that it supports, the John Ting Memorial Scholarship Fund and CancerCare Manitoba.
You will find that the selection of music that Jana chose is an appealing one, drawn from the classical era through the romantic era to the early twentieth century. Well-known music by composers such as Mozart and Chopin are the mainstays here, but lesser-known pieces by the likes of Debussy and Szymanowski are also included. These works that constitute the album provide a wide variety of colours, timbres and emotions that pervade the senses. And they all tie in to the theme of “rebirth, beauty and renewal of spirit” that Jana has indicated in the liner notes.
Finally, you will discover that Jana is an excellent pianist, filled with passion and spirit! Her playing is solid throughout, warm and tender where called for, and she traverses virtuosic passages with ease. It is quite obvious that she is dedicated to the worthy causes that this album was created in support of, and I’m sure that it had an impact on her performance.
The album was recorded in Eckhardt-Gramatte Hall at the University of Winnipeg, and the sound is clean and first-rate. The liner notes are excellent and informative.
