Notes & Reviews:
Considered one of the best and most successful works of "Minimal Music", the Canto Ostinato by Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt acquired a cult status. With an expert performance by Piano Ensemble, a group that includes a number of specialists in minimalism, this recording is authoritative, complex yet accessible, and an essential addition to the collection of anyone interested in minimalism.
American Record Guide, September / October 2012
The more I listen to this, the more I like it. It was recorded in a church, and you can hear the vastness; but the engineers kept the pianos right in the foreground. The sound is really superb. Notes in English, more about Ten Holt and the pianists than the piece.
Recording information: Barbara Church, Culemborg (05/23/2005-05/27/2005).
