In a project born out of the performers’ desire to connect with other cultures around the world and with one another, Deborah Moriarty and Zhihua Tang have released Connecting Cultures. Both pianists are on faculty at Michigan State University College of Music and each perform around the world. For this album, they share a piano bench, performing works drawn from the composers’ roots. From spirituals to nursery songs and folk dances, the selection comes from a variety of cultures and promotes female, African American, and Hispanic composers alongside standard repertoire.
