Anna Shelest honors women composers in 'Donna Voce' / New Classical Tracks

Bookmark and Share

"I actually find great freedom as a performer playing new music that's actually not new, but it is new to the listeners today." Pianist Anna Shelest expresses that newfound freedom on her new recording, Donna Voce. In Italian, it means 'woman's voice.' "It's quite shocking when I think about it, because I played piano for over 30 years now, and I've never played a serious work by a woman composer. I feel like it was really a lucky idea, because it led me to this beautiful discovery."
