“Beaumont’s virtuosity is immediately communicated” 
 - Radio Netherlands

“a new music CD from a tremendous pianist, Canadian Réa Beaumont” - CBC Radio 2
"Sometimes the planets align, and fortune favours the bold. These sayings only partially do justice to Réa Beaumont, who takes command of the stage of Glenn Gould Studio with a stunning set of contemporary piano works … Beaumont handles all of this repertoire with enviable ease. …You absolutely must hear this.” -
The WholeNote (Toronto)CD Review:  Creating a Landscape

About the album:
Recorded on a Steinway D at CBC’s Glenn Gould Studio, Toronto, Réa Beaumont’s album Creating a Landscape explores ways in which music shapes our auditory landscape and draws parallels with the impact mankind has on our planet.

With solo piano repertoire, ranging from meditative to virtuoso, Creating a Landscape features the world premiere recording of *Six Arrows written by concert pianist Anton Kuerti, in addition to John Cage’s meditative In a Landscape, Arvo Pärt’s ethereal Für Alina, Colin McPhee’s first composition *Four Piano Sketches, Op. 1, University of Windsor professor Brent Lee’s *Subjective Geometries, and Order of Canada recipient Barbara Pentland’s poignant work Vincula [‘bonds].
