Having recorded for the Decca Gold Label in the 1950s and 60s, Ruth Slenczynska returns to the label nearly 60 years later to release a new solo piano album, recorded in 2021, entitled My Life in Music. The album celebrates her remarkable life and performing career which began as a child prodigy in the 1920s and continues nine decades later. Born in 1925 in Sacramento, California, to Polish immigrants, Slenczynska gave her concert debut at the age of four, performed on television aged five, and at six made her European concert debut in Berlin. 92 years later, the extraordinary pianist still performs for audiences around the world.
