Pianist and music educator David Korevaar recently released a recording of Lowell Liebermann’s piano music – the third volume in his series devoted to Lowell Liebermann’s solo piano music on the MSR Classics label – as he continues his journey of recording all of Liebermann’s works for the piano. This release features each of Liebermann’s original works for solo piano composed between 2001 and 2017, including world premiere recordings of his Nocturne No. 8, Op. 85; Nocturne No. 9,Op. 97; Nocturne No. 10, Op. 99; and Nocturne No. 11, Op. 112. Additional works include Liebermann’s Piano Sonata No. 3, Op. 82; Schubert Variations, Op. 100; and 2 Impromptus, Op. 131.

Julie says, “David is obviously a very talented pianist, but I was curious about the prospect of recording the music of someone who has been a friend for so long… especially when, as in this case, you’re creating the premiere recordings of some of those works. We talk about that, as well as the challenges of being a university music professor during a pandemic and the musical works he recommends students explore. Based on his caring attitude and thoughtful list, I think I would have enjoyed having David as a piano instructor!”
