Collot, Jean-Pierre

WINTER&WINTER conceives a canon of the most extraordinary piano works of world literature performed by the unique French artist Jean-Pierre Collot. After Hans Abrahamsen's "Schnee“ (with ensemble recherche), the album "Universe" (Claude Debussy in dialogue with Salvatore Sciarrino), "Espaces Imaginaires" (with premiere recordings of Jean Barraque's masterpieces) now the Goethe texts Restless Love, An Schwager Kronos, Meeresstille, Erlkönig and Gretchen am Spinnrade inspire the composers Hugues Dufourt and Schubert/Liszt to dedicate themselves to Sturm und Drang, a German movement of the late 18th century that exalted nature, feeling, and human individualism and sought to overthrow the Enlightenment cult of Rationalism. Goethe and Schiller began their careers as prominent members of the movement.
