Enfantines I

This CD presents piano music by four composers selected and performed by Katherine Day. They are suitable pieces for young pianists to play. Katherine’s profound interpretations and carefully sculpted intimate sound worlds touch on the infinite and timeless. Her path is that of weaving disparate works with a common narrative, spotlighting the unusual along the way.

In this first solo album, Katherine explores lesser known and recorded works by Otto Joachim, Ernst Krenek, Mozart and Granados. Inspired by her university lecturing and piano teaching, these recordings serve to provide finely sculpted interpretations of often overlooked repertoire. A couple of the pieces by Mozart and Granados appear in local and overseas interrmediate exam syllabuses, whilst the Krenek and Joachim are often used to teach twelve tone composition techniques to upper secondary and early tertiary students.

Every piece of music has a story to share, and it is the duty of performers to give our all to every piece we play. Modelling is the most effective way to educate our students. This album exists to inspire piano teachers, their students, and other pianists to create exceptional performances of works that deserve more recognition.

Katherine Day can also be heard on other Move albums with soprano Shu-Cheen Yu and low flautist Peter Sheridan. She can also be heard on recordings for ABC Classic FM and 3MBS FM.
