ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Combining his hallmark rhythmic vitality with soaring, lyrical melodies for strings, Scott Pender uses elements of old-time music to create a suite in which the piano gradually emerges from an accompanying role into a solo role in the finale.

"Foothills," a four-movement work for string orchestra & piano, was commissioned by The North Georgia Chamber Symphony, Inc. and is featured as the soundtrack to the documentary film "Pieced Together" from Director/Producer Julianne Donofrio, set for early 2015 release.

Scott Pender (b. 1959) has called the phonograph his first music teacher. He cites his parents’ “extensive, eclectic record collection” as a primary early influence. With a compositional style that draws on 20th century minimalism and popular music, and also recalls the 19th-century Romantic tradition, Pender studied philosophy at Georgetown University and music composition at Peabody Conservatory. He was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to study in the United Kingdom with the English composer Gavin Bryars. A native of Florida, he has made Washington, D.C. his home for more than 35 years.
