By Staff | Jul 2, 2021

KEOKEA — Ebb & Flow Arts will soon release its fifth commercial CD. “Premiere Recordings” will comprise several works that have never been recorded.

This CD, produced during the pandemic, comprises six pieces: “Music for Two Pianos” by George Walker; “Polyphonic Songs” for solo violin by Shinhee Park; “Glissées” for solo cello by Isang Yun; “Trio” for violin, cello and piano by Edward T. Cone; “Five Preludes” for piano by Vivian Fine; and “Fata Morgana” for solo piano by Winston Choi.

The dates of composition range from 1939 to 2018.

Performers include Minghuan Xu and Ignace Jang, violinists; Alexander Hersh and Sung Chan Chang, cellists; and Adam Tendler, Robert Pollock, Naomi Niskala and Winston Choi, pianists.

“We are particularly grateful to our Grammy Award-winning master engineer, Da-Hong Seetoo,” said Ebb & Flow Arts Executive Director Robert Pollock.

“His devotion and interest will make our new CD a remarkably well-sounding experience.”

Also coming soon via CDBaby is Tendler’s live, legendary, memorized performance, on Maui, of John Cage’s “Sonatas and Interludes” for prepared piano.

These releases are part of E&FA’s annual multi-day, multi-site, international NORTH SOUTH EAST WEST FESTIVAL 2021.
