Album Notes
Emmy award winning composer Lynette Westendorf, M.M., D.M.A., lives in a remote mountain valley in the American Northwest.

Mystery in a Gray Room is a project of modern compositions for piano, showing the influence of the song form on Lynette's writing. Mystery in a Gray Room is a hymn fantasy; When Phaedra Sang, originally composed for koto, is based upon childrens' melodies. The major work on the CD is Twenty Moons in the Big Canyon, a nine-movement work based upon the poetry of E. Richard Hart. These pieces are all modern "songs without words" whose rhythm is based upon the syntax of the poems.

Reviews of Lynette Westendorf's composition:

"Music offering a rare convergence: a post-modern brain with a prehistoric heart."--Jim Olding, KBOO-FM, Portland, Oregon.

"...a seriously adventurous compositional talent."--Creative Music Guild, Portland, Oregon.

"Her piano playing...[is] marked by suppleness, fluidity, and spontaneity."--Julie Harting, Journal of the International Alliance for Women in Music.
