Frederick Moyer:
Mendelssohn: Seven Pieces in the Form of a Suite
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
MENDELSSOHN: 7 PIECES/MUSSORGSKY: PICTURES coverBy one of today's premier young pianists, Frederick Moyer's sweeping, dynamic concert performances were captured on the Bösendorfer 290 SE piano and then edited by the attached computer and reproduced by the piano under ideal acoustic conditions. 

The result: the excitement of a live concert recording coupled with pristine digital audio quality on the first-ever recording to employ this revolutionary technology.

(Also on GM Recordings, hear Frederick Moyer on Bach: Partita Number 5 in G Major, Rachmaninoff: Corelli Variations, Three Centuries Live (works by Haydn, Brahms, Prokofiev), Reger: Studies for the Left HandWalker: Piano Sonata Number 4, Ravel: Valses Nobles et Sentimentales, and Liszt/Busoni: Three Paganini Etudes.)

"[Moyer's] performance has rich tone, clarity, lyrical sensitivity and plenty of virtuosic energy."
—Anthony Tommasini,
Boston Globe
