Other Points of Interest and Links

There is a one page text in the CD digipack format that briefly describes the history of Piano Circus and its performances. It also notes that all the works on this disc were commissioned by Piano Circus except for the Conlon Nancarrow Study No.5 for player piano which was arranged for six human pianists by Piano Circus member David Appleton. If you are seeking more information and details of the composers represented on this album, the note suggests a visit to the Piano Circus website at www.pianocircus.com. However, a quick look through that website did not find any composer biographies and/or composition notes for this disc.
