ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music I Love - Scarlatti, J. S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, and Chopin
I have been playing much of the music in this album since I was a teenager. Particularly, the Bach Inventions, Beethoven’s “Les Adieux” and the Adagio from Liszt’s First Piano Concerto have been favorites of mine since I started playing the piano. I still teach my students much of the music in this collection and it has been a desire of mine to have recordings of it to share with them.
I prepared this CD while in my home overlooking Cape Cod Bay and the watercolor of Beachpoint on the CD cover is the view I saw every day as I rehearsed this music for recording. The beauty and ever-changing bay is a constant inspiration. One can breathe in deeply the phrases of Chopin and Mozart while viewing this great expanse of ocean and sky.

Paul Bisaccia made his European debut at age 17 and has performed concerts on four continents. He graduated summa cum laude and first in his class from the Hartt School and is a protégé of renowned Brazilian pianist Luiz de Moura Castro. His vast repertoire includes the great piano classics including many works of Beethoven Liszt and Chopin. He was the first artist to record the complete solo piano music of Gershwin. His PBS television show, Gershwin by Bisaccia, has been seen by millions and was dubbed into Mandarin Chinese for broadcast in Asia. Michael Feinstein calls Paul Bisaccia and the Great American Piano, his second television show for PBS, "Imaginative, fun, well played and totally satisfying." His third television show, Chopin by Bisaccia has been included in his DVD release Bisaccia on Television!
The Hartt School honored Paul with the Alumnus of the Year Award and the Governor of Connecticut proclaimed Paul Bisaccia Day in the State of Connecticut. PBS celebrated the day with a rebroadcast of his television shows. Bisaccia was also honored to perform Rhapsody in Blue in inauguration ceremonies for the new theater on the site of Aeolian Hall in New York, where Gershwin himself first performed his legendary masterpiece.
A prolific and versatile recording artist, Paul has recorded over 400 individual compositions covering a wide range of classical and American composers. Many of his television and film clips can be seen on YouTube. He has been a recurring guest lecturer at Harvard University and has written a book, Piano Player – Memoir and Master Class, describing his life as a concert pianist.
