Nadia Shpachenko: The Poetry of Places

Nadia Shpachenko

Fresh off her Grammy Award win for Best Classical Compendium, pianist Nadia Shpachenko joins us to showcase the winning album, called The Poetry of Places. Featuring several world premieres, the disc has a fascinating premise: composers writing music inspired by the diverse architectural landmarks that have played a role in their lives. In addition to the piano, there are works that include percussion, electronics, voice, and toy piano with contributions from L.A. Phil principal keyboardist Joanne Pearce Martin, and Los Angeles Percussion Quartet members Nick Terry and Cory Hills.
