Ms. Bindman’s third and newest
CD issued by the MSR Classics label – her rendition of
Tchaikovsky’s lyrical cycle "The Seasons"
and two bravura piano transcriptions of his music to
Eugene Onegin – is now available in stores and online.
It may also be purchased through this website, along
with two more recordings by Ms. Bindman on the Windsor
Classics label: a solo piano CD of the works of Modeste
Mussorgsky, and a Duo Piano CD featuring American and
English classics from the early 20th century.
Included in Ms. Bindman’s
debut recording, Three Works by Modeste Mussorgsky,
are his famous masterpiece “Pictures at
an Exhibition,” Ms. Bindman’s piano
transcription of his orchestral tone poem “A
Night on Bald Mountain” and the composer’s
own piano arrangement of a lesser-known orchestral
sketch, “Intermezzo in Classical Style.”
This recording reflects Ms. Bindman’s passion
for Mussorgsky’s music as well as her interest
in the piano’s capability to assume the
guise of a full symphony orchestra, as all three
pieces exist in both instrumentations. The artist’s
own piano rendition of “A Night on Bald
Mountain” is a faithful version of the original.
It is published by Carl Fischer, Inc.
“Out of the Blue”
is an exciting recording celebrating Ms. Bindman’s
10-year partnership with the other half of the
piano team Duo Vivace, Ms. Susan Sobolewski.
The centerpiece of this release is Gustav Holst’s
2-piano transcription of “The Planets”
– a substantial effort for all involved
and a revealing example of how the texture of
an orchestral work can come through with unexpected
clarity via two well-coordinated keyboards. Framing
“The Planets” are two 4-hand jewels:
the delightful “Candide Overture”
of Leonard Bernstein and Gershwin’s deservedly
ever-popular “Rhapsody in Blue.”
