TILBURY, JOHN - FOR TOMASZ SIKORSKI (CD)


"This release then of three short pieces under ten minutes by the Pole; Autograph (1980), Rondo (1984) and Zertstreutes Hinausschauen (1971) clearly holds some emotional resonance for Tilbury as he reflects on the music of his deceased old friend, and he then adds a fourth track here, a thirteen minute long improvisation in Sikorski's memory. The composed pieces here are each a nice listen, with the opening Autograph possibly the pick, as small flurries of melodic fragment are rotated, so as to create a vague sensation of verse and chorus, but the real joy of this music feels to be less about the actual notes and chords used but more the depth and volume of the way they are played, the deep resonance of the piano, with pedals depressed, something about the physicality of it."
