Album Notes
Schaaf's love of Spanish music was born when his high school girlfriend taught him some flamenco riffs on a guitar. Later, when he was in Juilliard as a prize-winning student of the iconic Rosina Lhévinne, he learned Triana, from Iberia, and fell in love with all the others in the set. After having a career as a soloist and accompanist for such artists as Yo-Yo Ma, Renata Tebaldi, and Jon Vickers, he switched to his other talent, photography, and made a fine reputation as a portrait photographer of musicians. He didn't touch the piano for twenty-five years! It was Iberia that brought him back to the keyboard as a supreme challenge and a labor of love.

The results, this CD, have been praised by critics. “Bracing rhythms, crystalline textures, pungent harmonic details” said Harris Goldsmith. “Hear how profoundly beautifully Schaaf plays them...his engagement with the music's depths is total and heartening” said Jeff Simon in the Buffalo News.
