In August, Phoenicia traveled to the recording studios of WGBH in Boston where, with composer Jon Appleton, pianist Yoshiko Kline, and audio engineer Frank Cunningham, we produced a new CD of Jon's piano music that will come out in late November or early December. We thought you might like to see some images from the studio sessions, which were intense, concentrated, and extremely satisfying. Yoshiko's playing was virtuosic, expressive, and sensitive, and I'm very excited to share these new neo-classical, and neo-romantic compositions with both new listeners and fans of Jon's music.
The score for Nine Novelettes.
Frank studies a score while Yoshiko finishes her practice before recording the Purcell Variations.

Jon, who now lives in Hawaii, gave Yoshiko a beautiful orchid lei.
The whole team was pretty happy at the close of recording: Frank Cunningham, engineer; Yoshiko Kline, pianist; Jon Appleton, composer; and Beth Adams, producer.
