Happy Birthday, Irina Morozova!

Irina MWhen I first discovered Irina’s collection of performances on You Tube, I surely thought heaven had descended to earth. She produced an ethereal singing tone inspired by imagination, but fine tuned with technical fluidity. Without a doubt, her repository of musical insights expanded my own piano learning journey as well as those of her students at Mannes.

Hare are two of many playing samples that drew me instantly into her divinely poetic universe:

And not to overlook Morozova’s ebullient Gershwin! (On CD!)

A resounding Happy Birthday to Irina, and best wishes for years more filled with musical celebration!
