Elena Riu - Piano Icons for the 21st Century - Musical Pointers

A fascinating collection of mainly quiet and deceptively simple miniatures. Her touch serves to perfection her selection of "Piano Icons for the 21st Century". Little prestidigitation or pianistic fireworks to be heard on this meditative CD. Few of the pieces are out of reach of non-professional pianists, and no one will fail to benefit from this demonstration that ultimately the most important equipment for pianists is a pair of acutely sensitive ears to control the fingers
