About the author:
Pianist Stacey Barelos specializes in the music of the 20th and 21st centuries, particularly the music of living composers. Regarding her performance of Henry Cowell's Dynamic Motion and the Five Encores to Dynamic Motion, Gunther Schuller said, "It was by far the best performing of Cowell's piano music I've heard in a half a century - or perhaps ever."

Her solo release, The Midwest American Piano Project, which features works by living composers with ties to the American Midwest, was released by Albany Records in 2008. The American Record Guide said “Stacey Barelos…plays with authority and poetic nuance, her beautiful tone captured vividly in this warm recording…”

Currently, Stacey Barelos is Assistant Professor of Music and Chair of the Piano Area at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, MO.  She received her DMA degree in piano from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2008.
