Buy Sandra Mogensen’s CD’s!

This week I would like to shamelessly promote the recordings of pianists who are friends of mine and who I think deserve significantly more recognition for their work. These folks also happen to distribute their music through CD Baby so a portion of the purchase price will support disaster relief in Haiti, if you order in the next two weeks

Sometime during the last year I asked the Twitterverse if anyone out there had experience organizing house concerts of classical piano music. Almost immediately I received a reply from a Canadian pianist named Sandra Mogensen, who told me that she had been arranging house concerts to raise money to fund her recording projects. In fact, she blogging about her process on a page that is titled, fittingly enough, Building a CD. To date her recordings have been devoted to Edvard Grieg’s solo piano music, which really does need to be better known by pianists and audiences alike. As it happens, she is a wonderful musician with a deep empathy for Grieg and I find her performances thoroughly enchanting.

For the next two weeks you can order Sandra’s two volumes of Grieg’s piano music from CD Baby and a portion of the purchase price will be donated to the Haiti earthquake relief effort. To go to Sandra's artist page on the CD Baby web site click here.
