Upcoming New Release, Gareth Farr: Horizon
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
|We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of Gareth Farr: Horizon (MMT2070), which will be released for sale in July 2012. Horizon showcases the vibrant and beautiful piano music of Gareth Farr. From the exotic sonorities of Indonesian gamelan to the more impressionistic influence of Olivier Messiaen, with echoes of Prokofiev and Shostakovich, this recording reveals Farr's engaging style. New Zealand-born pianist and prize-winning Juilliard graduate Henry Wong Doe is joined by New York City colleagues in performing the ten works on this album, including seven first recordings.
Wong Doe’s performance of Farr’s piano music at Carnegie Weill Recital Hall, New York City, March, 2012, was described as ‘a brilliant performance… with great vitality, thrust and characterization… especially the way he realized the music’s peppery virtuosity via his gestural way of playing the piano’, Harris Goldsmith for New York Concert Review.
Horizon will be released for sale in July 2012. Pre-order your copy today at www.43.co.nz
