The music on this disc spans a wide range of memory types, though it all came into existence because of single pianist. A highly emotive performer with an atmospheric stage presence, Lois Svard has become a leading interpretive champion of New York's Downtown music, a pioneer in repertoire that until recently as performed mainly by its composers. Her taste in new music is as superlative as her pianistic technique, as is shown by these works she commissioned and premiered by three of New York's most outstanding musical figures: "Blue" Gene Tyranny's Nocturne With and Without Memory, William Duckworth's Imaginary Dances, Robert Ashley's Van Cao's Meditation.
