Tones and Colors is a new piano album inspired by artwork. Liza Stepanova presents music by Bach, Martinu, and Gyorgy Ligeti among others. Ligeti's original idea had been to compose twelve √Čtudes, in two books of six each, ala Debussy, but the scope of his etudes grew...one of our favorites from this new collection is the Infinite Column etude that Ligeti composed. You can hear it on What's New.

WBAA's John Clare had a chance to speak with Liza Stepanova about her CAG album Tones and Colors.
