- Kai Schumacher (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
On this new CD, Kai Schumacher performs Frederic Rzewski's work 'The People United Will Never Be Defeated', a work based on the Chilean protest song, 'El pueblo unido jamas sera vencido!', written by Sergio Ortega a few months before Pinochet's military coup in September of 1973. "A masterpiece," says composer Bernhard Wambach. "It is a work that would be unthinkable without Bach, but also without Stockhausen, Boulez and Cage. Whoever wishes to interpret this work has not only to master a text of the highest pianistic difficulty, but must also 'take a position.' The pianist must embody a political perspective. Without such a 'position', it is impossible to interpret this work of a committed socialist."Notes & Reviews:
