 Marilyn Nonken piano


 Marilyn Nonken is without doubt one of the leading exponents of modern piano music, and also Director of Piano Studies at New York University’s Steinhardt School. She has a particular affinity with the spectral school of music, as exemplified in her previous CD of the works of Tristan Murail (MS2097) - Metier’s best seller. This sequel features a major (half-hour-long) work by another of the founding generation of spectral music, Hugues Dufourt, and awesome pieces by young American composer Joshua Fineberg. 

 “Marilyn Nonken negotiates the immense technical and musical challenges of these works in remarkable fashion. This well recorded disc is self-recommending to readers who will know from this review whether they will be receptive to music of this sort. However self-recommending it may be, though, I recommend it too.” 

 
David DeBoor Canfield - Fanfare

"... There is not a pianist playing today who can bring more subtlety and energy to the music of Fineberg and Dufort than does Marilyn Nonken. Her voicings are exquisite , her pedaling throughout is a model to be studied, and, where necessary, her virtuosity is equaled only by the insight and passion with which every piece is imbued. The recording is excellent, capturing every burst of light and color  as it decays through every shade of sound and silence... this is an absolutely essential piano disc, a worthy addition to the library of anyone interested in recent piano explorations, rendered with vitality and intellectual rigor in perfect balance."

Marc Medwin - Fanfare - March/April 2015


“Marilyn Nonken is a persuasive advocate for spectral music ... [she] has followed her outstanding 2CD set of Murail’s complete piano music with [this disc]. Dense, mercilessly virtuosic writing ... Nonken handles the incremental tension superbly.” 
 
Graham Lock - International Piano magazine
