Also, news from Adam:
“I also wanted to share that my recording of the piano works by the Cuban-American composer Tania León has finally been released on Albany Records. This was a labor of love with one of my favorite colleagues, who worked with me closely on all her major piano works and also provided several examples of her early, unpublished compositions for me to include. The recording is available on Amazon in CD format at Adam Kent plays Tania Leon on CD and for download at Adam Kent plays Tania Leon MP3
I’m especially pleased that this release coincides with the most recent burst of public recognition for one the world’s leading composers. Her orchestral piece Stride, commissioned by the New York Philharmonic, was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2021, and I include a link to information on the Kennedy Center Award she will receive this December: Tania Leon Kennedy Center Honors.
I hope you will find her music as rewarding as I do, in its infinite richness, its blending of cultural traditions, and its unbridled spontaneity and energy.
