IUP piano faculty member Henry Wong Doe has released his second solo album, Landscape Preludes, on Rattle Records to critical acclaim.
He performed six of the tracks at a release event in Auckland, New Zealand, in July 2014.
The disc is a set of 12 solo piano works by contemporary New Zealand composers, all reflective of the New Zealand landscape.
During its first week of release, the New Zealand Herald critic William Dart gave Landscape Preludes a five-star rating: “Wong Doe is a pianist who tempers flamboyance with poetry . . . a fascinating range of New Zealand landscapes magnificently caught . . . if you buy just one classical CD this year, make it Landscape Preludes.”
The disc is available in hard copy and digital download at Rattle Records.
