For Alma - Volume 8

For Alma - Volume 8

I chose my favorite 46 pieces, to give you over an hour's worth of music. When Lisa decides on which songs to put on a recording, it is usually oriented towards dancers and their teachers and in her mind she is thinking of the structure of the many classes she has played for. One day while visiting friends on the island of Ibiza, a thought occurred, to release a record that would have no real structure other than for pure listening and relaxing. ALMA Classic Choices was born. Simply a compilation of some of Lisa's favorite pieces all on one CD. The word ALMA in spanish means the soul and the spirit. Listen to this album as a way to relax and help bring you in touch with the day.

In Sync - Volume 7

In Sync - Volume 7

"I love playing the piano. My music has taken me all around the world and I am constantly amazed that as I write this, dancers in classes from New York to Tokyo are practicing their technique to my recordings. For the last 2 years I have had the pleasure of playing for Nacho Duato and the Compañia Nacional de Danza in Spain. The experience and what I have learned there will stay with me forever, but now I have decided to return to my home in Seattle to my himalayan cats, and release my 7th recording....IN SYNC.. Inspiration for it has been definitely made possible with the fantastic support of my friends in Australia, Spain, Japan, England, France and all across the USA. Enjoy, dance and stay IN SYNC." -Lisa Harris

Après le Plié

Après le Plié

54 bands of music (Lisa had more but the CD wouldn't hold it all). During this recording Lisa was on the staff of The Compañia Nacional de Danza in Madrid under the artistic direction of Nacho Duato, Spain's foremost choregrapher. "This contract has given me the opportunity to be in a great atmosphere of dancer's, at the leading edge of what's happening to the future of dance. Every ballet company want's Mr. Duato's work, and I can see why. There is soul, and technique and dignity to what he is doing. A visionary approach to keeping dance exciting and moving forward, while still keeping a link to the past." -Lisa Harris. This recording contains a full wide range of exercises, clearly marked from Pliés to Reverence.

Although she follows the traditional ballet class, she plays a wide variety of music, in order to fit what's happening in the studio.
