Additional information: • This unusual collection is dedicated to a very popular style: minimal music. Over the years this has evolved from austere, almost strict repetition with tiny ‘movements’ to a more varied and free approach to material and technique.
• This set includes works for piano solo by most of the famous ‘minimal’ composers. Starting with initiator, if you will, Cage, and followed by the first generation entirely devoting itself to this style: Riley and Glass (Steve Reich did not write anything for solo piano). The next generation is represented by John Adams and Michael Nyman (his music for the film The Piano).
• Dutch pianist Jeroen van Veen is fascinated by minimal music. He was one of the initiators and participants of the highly successful complete recordings on 11 CD’s of Simeon ten Holt’s – a Dutch ‘minimalist’ – complete works for multiple piano’s. On this solo album once again he demonstrates with great flair his affinity with minimalism.
• The repertoire included here also comprises compositions by Satie, Friedrich Nietzsche and Arvo Pärt. There are two CD’s with music by the pianist himself and several recordings of minimal pieces by other present-day French, Belgian and Dutch composers.
• This attractive set will appeal to a wide audience and may shed some light on the present state of minimalism.
