Description

This recording by Bojan Gorišek finds the Slovenian pianist exploring the piano etudes by the contemporary American composer Philip Glass. The ten piano etudes heard in this recording were begun in 1993, commissioned by the pianist Dennis Russell Davies. In these pieces, Glass departs from the "minimalist" style, incorporating a high degree of emotional expressiveness. "Their purpose was two-fold," Glass explains. "First, to provide new music for my solo piano concerts. And second, for me to expand my piano technique with music that would enhance and challenge my playing. Hence, the name Etudes, or "studies". The result is a body of work that has a broad range of dynamic, tempo and emotion." Gorišek performs four other Glass compositions here in addition to the ten piano etudes.
