Synopsis

Album Description
2007 Grammy nominee Andrew Russo rides his supercharged piano into the twenty-first century with fourteen dirty little secrets packed with verve and humor, crankiness and delight, sweat and sarcasm, attitude and acrobatics, power and peril, joy and turbulence, punch and grace-fourteen short masterworks by twelve of today's most relevant composers! A number of classical albums feature recitals of short 'encore' piano pieces, mostly nienteenth-century trifles. Dirty Little Secret has a similar structure-that is, it is a piano album with many short tracks. However, it reflects both a repertoire and attitude that belong to this century of sound bites, downloads, and the cynical sarcasm of Generation X. A versatile, prolific artist both onstage and in the recording studio, American pianist Andrew Russo has made a name for himself through his work with many of today's leading composers in the US and Europe. As a recitalist, Russo's programs frequently feature premieres. Trained classically at the Juilliard School and the Hochschule fur Music and Theater Mendelssohn in Leipzig, he pursued further specialized training in Paris with Frederic Chiu. In addition to his extensive solo activities, Russo is a member of the piano/cello/percussion trio Real Quiet, a group much involved in commissioning new music. "A pianist who knows no limits" -- London Times "Andrew Russo is by no means just `another pianist.'" -- Gramophone A number of records feature recitals of short `encore' piano pieces, mostly nineteenth-century trifles. Dirty Little Secret is a record with a similar structure--that is, a piano album with many short tracks. However, it reflects both a repertoire and attitude that belong to this century of sound bites, downloads, and the cynical sarcasm of Generation X. A versatile, prolific artist both on and offstage and in the recording studio, American pianist Andrew Russo has made a name for himself through his work with many of today's leading composers in the United States and Europe. Trained classically at the Juilliard School and the Hochschule fur Musik und Theater Mendelssohn in Leipzig, Russo pursued further specialized training in Paris with Frederic Chiu. It was during those years that Russo began developing relationships with many important American and European composers, began working with electro-acoustic music, and explored an ongoing interest for the hybrid world of live musical performance and theater. As a recitalist, Russo's programs frequently feature premieres. In addition to his activities as a performer and event organizer, he dedicates time to the direction and development of Music Journeys INC, a non-profit foundation he founded in 2001.
