Notes & Reviews:
Fanfare Music: "Dutch pianist and composer, Jeroen van Veen, the leading exponent of minimalism in Holland today", Alan Swanson, Jan 2010.
The Minimal Piano Collection for one piano ended with "In C" by Terry Riley. Many of the composers on this new 11 CD box have stated that this particular piece was a starting point for them to compose in a new way, exploring the ways that were created, the spaces between the notes, the emptiness, and the freedom. Get carried away by the new black box, enjoy the Minimal Piano Collection, and let the journey begin including a few recording premieres!
Superbly performed and very well engineered, these are recordings which can stand alongside any in similar repertoire. As an introduction and deepening of one's experiences with the world of 'repetitive' music this is likely to be an eye or ear-opener for many, including die-hard fans like myself...If your experiences of minimalism until now have been negative, this is a perfect place to commence rehabilitation.
