Conrad Tao: Voyages
EMI Classics 34476-2
Ravel: Gaspard de la nuit (22:32)
Conrad Tao, piano
At eighteen years old, Conrad Tao has already accomplished more than most classical musicians do in a lifetime. A world-class pianist, concert–level violinist and acclaimed composer, Tao is also a Gilmore Young Artist prize winner and a U.S. Presidential Scholar. His debut album is anything but traditional. The recording features two of his own compositions, Meredith Monk’s Railroad (Travel Song), a selection of Rachmaninoff preludes and Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit.
