Piano - Stewart Goodyear

As a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor, the works on this album obtain new life by arising from the soundworld, past traditions, and gestures of Franz Lizst. Whether it is the virtuosic splashes of color created by Debussy, the urban landscape constructed by Jennifer Higdon, the intense improvisation & haunting dissonant starkness by Anthony Davis, Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition which encompasses a long journey from intimate characters pieces to “The Great Gate of Kiev”; or the pianism in two new works by Goodyear which pay tribute to his Trinidadian roots, each work on this album rises from the ashes Liszt.
