    An article by Dr. Anthony Olson, professor of music, appears in the current issue of “Clavier Companion.”

    The research paper, titled “Exploring the Melodrama: Works for Narrator and Piano,” discusses the history and development of musical and theatrical works for pianist with narrator.

    Olson, a member of the Northwest faculty since 2000, also has recorded a CD featuring the repertoire. The recording is available on iTunes and Amazon.

    The peer-reviewed “Clavier Companion” is the leading U.S. publication dedicated to piano performance and pedagogy.
