About the album
Ryan Anthony Francis is a remarkable young composer who was born in Portland, Oregon, studied at Julliard and now resides in New York City. His work is brilliant and dynamic, combining the imagination of Ligeti with the minimal language of Steve Reich and John Adams. Fluid and fascinating, his work for solo piano is some of his very best. Performed here by the virtuoso pianist Vicky Chow, a long time colleague of Francis, the music is lush, beautiful and endlessly inventive.
