New music for piano from the Midwest.

This recording contains the work of six contemporary composers either currently active in, or with some connection to the American Midwest. The works were composed during a six-year span, from 2001-2007 and are performed by Stacey Barelos, a DMA student in piano and composition at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Noted for her presentation of music of the 20th and 21st centuries, her performances of the music of Henry Cowell have attracted special recognition and acclaim.

Review:
"This disc is testimony to how much substantial music is growing in our backyards...Barelos is a marvelous pianist. I'm struck by the variety of colors she can simultaneously coax from the instrument...a very pleasant surprise, and for me, this one's a keeper." (Fanfare)

"Stacey Barelos...plays with authority and poetic nuance, her beautiful tone captured vividly in this warm recording..." (American Record Guide)
