UNESCO Recital (1990)unesco

In the fall of 1990 I was invited to give an address, to an overflow crowd, in the Grande Salle of the Unesco in Paris for the opening of the first International Congress on Haptonomy, to be followed by a piano recital. The address was entitled, "Music: the Fullness of the Present". The recital which took place that same evening is represented on this disc. The Washington Post, commenting on this CD wrote  "… all interpreted with a style and grace to match his sure-handed, unobtrusive technique. In his notes of the Beethoven he (Ibes) says 'that it journeys to that world … where time seems to have ceased.' His performance makes it sound that way."
