Previous recordings include: Brazilian and Spanish Piano Works;Chopin, Preludes; El Ultimo Tango - Six Tangos by Astor Piazzolla and The Spanish Piano.

Geisa received a 2013 GAP to offset expenses related to the production and recording of a CD covering 150 years of the piano in Brazil, from 1863 to 2013, with compositions by many wonderful Brazilian composers yet unknown by the majority of American audiences. The CD will also include the Seattle premiere performance of the Sonata nr.3 by Claudio Santoro (1919-1989).
