WOLPE / FELDMAN / ZIMMERMANN / SEEL - FOUR GENERATIONS (CD)


It is only fitting that the coda to this recital of most demanding 20th century piano music should only be a quiet epilogue, a sparse and subtle probing of single piano sonorities, but also a creation of the brillant young pianist who manages to do justice to music as different as those of Wolpe, Feldman and Zimmermann. For Daniel N. Seel is not only a of renown, but a prodigious composer, whose oeuvre includes, apart from numerous piano pieces, orchestral music, an opera, scores of various instrumental groupings and performance-oriented pieces. And since Seel is a former student of Walter Zimmermann, this pianissimo finale is also another link in the many aestethic and biographical strands joining Stefan Wolpe, Morton Feldman, Walter Zimmermann and Daniel N. Seel, in spite of all obvious differences between those representatives of four musical generations. - Peter Niklas Wilson
