Pianodao Tea Room members were this week treated to a very special online event, at which best-selling author Karen Marshall unveiled her new collection, HerStory.
Below, we are now pleased to share the full video of the presentation, with special thanks to Rachel Topham at Faber Music and Emily Alexander at Yorkshire Young Musicians for their generous support.
HerStory (from Faber Music) will likely interest a wide catchment of piano players and teachers, being a compilation of 30 works by female composers who thus far have not received the recognition they have deserved.
In her presentation, Karen introduced us to two of the living composers who have contributed specially commissioned pieces, and showcased videos of students playing a wonderful selection of new music.
The book itself is released on International Women’s Day, 8th March 2022, preceded by a concert which will be recorded and also posted on YouTube that day.
An exclusive first review of the book will appear on Pianodao within the next few days, and you can pre-order today from Musicroom using this link:
And now here is the video cast from the launch event. Enjoy!
