New works for piano all written in the 21st century.

Sojourn features new works for piano all written in the 21st century, six of which are newly commissioned. Pianist Jessica Johnson performs these works on a DS Standard 5.5 piano keyboard. This alternatively sized piano keyboard allows a whole new level of artistic and technical freedom for pianists with small handspans. Johnson, who serves on the piano faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, studied at the University of Michigan and East Carolina University. She is an advocate for new music, an active clinician, and has held residencies at major universities and colleges throughout North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. She is a three-time winner of American Music Teacher's Article of the Year Award.
