Beethoven/Latartara: Hammerklavier / Sakata, Gardiner

Album Summary

>Lives, Parallel : Hammerklavier (after Beethoven)
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Beethoven Hammerklavier is an attempt to reveal the myriad ways in which Beethoven's Hammerklavier could be experienced. Operating somewhere between the role of performer, composer, engineer and analyst, Parallel Lives force Hammerklavier into new configurations. Relying solely on performances by pianist Jon Sakara, Beethoven samples, and ambient recordings made at a conservatory of music, a view of the 'musical work' is documented in all of its stages; from discussion, to the practice room, recording studio and concert hall, to its final confrontation with the labyrinthine structures of the software applications that threaten its identity.
