ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Preludes to Passion is a beautiful collection of short works for the piano, ranging from J.S. Bach's Allemande to Sting's tender The Secret Marriage, arranged for cello and piano; from Poulenc's shimming Sicilliene from his Suite Francaise to Aaron Copland'sreflective In Evening Air, which the composer arranged from his touching soundtrack for the 1940s documentary The Cunningham Story.

Two works are originally composed as choral works -Bartok's Wedding Songs from Poniky for mixed chorus and piano. The choral parts sing beautifully from the piano and joined with the original accompaniment, they transform the song into a dramatic two-piano expression of love and regret. Paul Hindemith's The Swan, was originally composed for a cappella choir. In this recording, the piano performs the choral parts and the text--a bittersweet poem about love-is read by Roger Andrews.
