1) Philip Thomas has started a wonderful blog at his site called For Pianist: Reflections on interpretation and performance.
articles now up:
2) Tim Rutherford-Johnson has written a really insightful review of the new Laurence Crane CD release, which I also completely love. More information on the CD, including two other deeply considered pieces of writing about it by Michael Pisaro and Jesse Goin and links to several YouTube extracts, is at its Another Timbre page. And there is a substantial interview with Crane here. My suggestion: buy the CD set now and read all the other material as you wait for it to arrive. International shipping is quite reasonable from AT, and there are lots of other great releases you might want to include as well. (More on some of those later, I hope.)
3) Pianist: Pieces is a new CD set of Christian Wolff’s solo piano music, recorded by Philip Thomas.
