Notes and Editorial Reviews

Magnux Lindberg is one of Finland's most important living composers. The difference between his piano works from the late-1970s and early 1980s, and those composed in the early years of the 21st century, can seem quite stark. Whereas such works as Music for Two Pianos (1976) and Piano Pieces (1977) are based strictly on serial procedures, the emergence of a vibrant, more approachable and less extreme style can be heard in Jubilees (200) and the Two Etudes (2001/2004) which even share, harmonic, textual, and even and stylistic parallels with Chopin, Liszt, Debussy, Rachmaninov, Scriabin, and Messiaen.

Review:

The complete recording of Lindberg's present output for piano provides a fair appreciation of his
Read more stylistic journey over the years. Ralph van Raat's immaculate playing and deep musicality cannot be bettered.
