Album Notes
Monica's Notebook: 12 Etudes for Solo Piano - composed by Kenji Bunch

Written between 2009-2011 for pianist Monica Ohuchi, each etude seeks to examine a particular facet of contemporary piano technique, including the stylistic inflections of vernacular American idioms, such as jazz, blues, and rock, all the while paying homage to the rich tradition of performing etudes in the classical canon.

Japanese-American pianist MONICA OHUCHI has performed to wide acclaim from audiences across the United States, Canada, Japan, and Europe both as a soloist and chamber musicians. Since capturing first prize at the Chinese International Piano Competition at the age of five, Ms. Ohuchi has been awarded top prizes in over twenty national and international piano competitions. A native of Seattle, Washington, Ms. Ohuchi holds a Master's and Bachelor's degree from the Juilliard School. She currently resides in Portland, OR, with her husband, Kenji Bunch, and their daughter and pit bull-mix rescue.

His music has been performed by over forty orchestras, in premiere venues on six continents. His works are regularly broadcast on radio worldwide, and have been recorded numerous times.
