ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Roy Eaton first performed in Carnegie Hall on Thursday, June 17, 1937 as a Gold Medallist in a competition sponsored by the Music Education League of New York.
In June 1950, he won the first Kosciuszko Foundation Chopin Award. He made his American debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing Chopin’s F minor Concerto under George Schick in 1951. He was reengaged to perform Beethoven’s 4th the following season, and also made his New York Town Hall debut in 1952. His career was “temporarily “ interrupted by two years service in the US Army during the Korean conflict, then approximately thirty years in advertising at Young & Rubicam, V.P.Music Director of Benton & Bowles, and running his own production company. He is currently on the faculty of the Manhattan School of Music. He returned to Carnegie Hall on December 9, 2002 as soloist with the NY Pops Orchestra led by Skitch Henderson.
1986 marked his return to the concert stage with a unique Alice Tully recital exploring the spiritual dimension of Chopin’s music called “The Meditative Chopin”. The N.Y. Times Tim Page said:
”The cumulative effect was deeply satisfying. One came much closer to the heart of Chopin—and by extension, to music itself”
This CD is a live recording of selections from that recital.
The reaction of audiences around the world has been equally enthusiastic. A Moscow critic wrote:”
“There are occasions when this world gives us magic moments of inspiration, when our reason and our soul live a special life, which is unfettered by mundane earthly laws. It was exactly this kind of moment which an American pianist, Roy Eaton, gave to Muscovites who managed to get to his concerts.”
