Nadezda Filippova: Echo Chambers

Nadezda Filippova has just released a new cd of solo piano music on the label 7 Mountain Records called Echo Chambers, including a beautiful interpretation of my work from 1991, “Entranced by the Beckoning Light”! Guido van Oorschot of the newspaper De Volkskrant has given the cd 4 stars (!) with a lovely mention of my work (in Dutch):

Dat ze nog altijd kan daveren laat Filippova horen in Entranced by the Beckoning Light van de Amerikaans-Nederlandse componist Vanessa Lann. Die schreef het boeiende stuk begin jaren negentig, zojuist gearriveerd en nog zoekend in Nederland.

Also music of Juan Felipe Waller and Claude Debussy! Gorgeous playing and recording quality! To order, please go to Echo Chambers.
