ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Deeply influenced by Glenn Gould, in particular his radio documentaries and the moral fibre of his pursuit of ecstatic experiences through sound, pianist Penny Johnson brings to the Inventions and Sinfonias of Bach, a desire for both warmth of tone and clean horizontal lines.

Focused on the development of a single idea rather than creating idiomatic instrumental effects, the Inventions and Sinfonias, like the Goldberg Variations composed some twenty years later, consist of thirty short and highly contrasting pieces. From the joyful exuberance and sparkling textures of Invention #8 in F-Major to the expansive, northerliness of Sinfonia #5 in E-Flat Major, the set offers a snapshot of the sonic imaginative power of one of history's great nonconformists.

Mississauga based pianist and writer, Penny Johnson is best known for her performances of the music of Bach. Solo recitals have included the complete Inventions & Sinfonias, the Goldberg Variations and Art of Fugue, for which she composed an ending to the unfinished final movement.

Originally from Sault Ste. Marie and born in Peace River, Penny holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Manhattan School of Music, as well as Master and Bachelor of Music degrees from the Eastman School of Music. A former contributing author for The Glenn Gould Foundation and the creator of Glenn Gould 905: A Triple Birthday Multi-Media Celebration for the Chamber Music Society of Mississauga, Penny is active as an adjudicator, coach and clinician, her highly acclaimed workshop, “From the Pianist’s Toolbox: Techniques for Effectively Practicing the Music of J.S. Bach” having been presented at various locations in the Greater Toronto Area.
