"I love the challenge of making orchestra-like tone colours emerge from the piano," says pianist Valerie Tryon. "On this recording, although the pianistic element is uppermost in all the music, it is still so full of of orchestra-like colours. This means that I often have orchestral colouring in my mind as an ideal when I'm playing much of the music."

Valerie Tryon began her career as a concert pianist while still a child in England. Before the age of twelve she had been broadcast by the BBC and was appearing regularly on the concert platform. She was awarded the Harriet Cohen Award in recognition of her services to music, and in 1987 was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music. She is currently artist-in-residence at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
