Meredith Monk: Piano Songs

Meredith Monk has been a composer, singer, director/choreographer, and creator of new operas, musical-theatre works, film and installations for over 50 years. As she celebrates that milestone with perhaps more performances and tributes this year than ever, she has released Piano Songs. The collection of 12 instrumental compositions for two pianos spanning the decades is magnificently performed by Bruce Brubaker and Ursula Oppens. The pieces are meditative, moving and memorable; where two pianos sing to each other as heartbeat, voice an dancer.
