Notes and Editorial Reviews

Now, at the start of a new century, has the piano had its day? How lively is the piano's pulse in the year 2000? The piano holds its own with a steady pulse, or so it seems, even if its position that we have taken for granted as the perfect home instrument is threatened by all kinds of electronic novelties. The present recording presents piano pieces which have been composed during the last two decades of the 20th century by composers of different generations: the oldest is 90 and the youngest is 34.
