Award-winning pianist Réa Beaumont presents: A Conversation Piece– with an Impressionist masterpiece and hidden gems. Beaumont's compelling interpretations take the listener on a journey through intense introspection and searing virtuosity. The disc's Impressionist set includes:Maurice Ravel's five-movement: Miroirs (1905), that in Beaumont's words, "evokes poetic and pictorial images." Beaumont makes her compositional début with: Shattered Ice that cautions against ecological destruction in the Arctic. An expert in Canadian music Beaumont presents undiscovered works by three of Canada's legendary composers: R. Murray Schafer, John Weinzweig and Jean Coulthard. A Conversation Piecewas recorded at the Canadian Broadcasting Centre's Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto by CBC engineers Adam Tune and John MacLean.  Former CBC Senior Producer David Jaeger co-produced the album with Beaumont.
