Koji Atwood

Great review of pianist Koji Attwood's recent recital at the Steinway Gallery in Florida.

"Huge sound, high emotion, and an instinct for sharply etched color. He also is a pianist of impressive technique, a player who can rattle off scalar figurations with aplomb and dazzle and still make room in his palette for the simplicity of the thematic line..."

An interesting program, particularly Attwoods inclusion of the music of Bortkiewicz. Music that ought to get more play than it does. Read the rest of the review here.

You can (and ought) to check out some of the Attwood's freely available .mp3's of his playing on Classical Cat. Find it here. An interesting interview with Attwood is found here.
