Notturno - Music Of Lights & Shadows
Format: COMPACT DISC
Notturno is a game: an interplay of light and shade in a quasi nocturnal setting that is occasionally illuminated by dazzling daylight. Matthias Veit unfurls a “panorama of correspondence”, shifting between tense tranquility and colorful dramatics. Iridescent character pieces inhabited by ghostly figures, un-known and well-loved gems from the piano repertoire span a net that stretches from the Romantic era to the modern day. Works from Crumb’s “Makrokosmos” initiate a musical discourse of pro and contra between the great piano composers, which breathes a single deep musical breath right from the start – ending with an unexpected culmination.
