Notes & Reviews:
This is no less than a seminal and milestone recording in modern piano music. History of Photography in Sound, a five and a half hour epic of genius, was recorded in several sessions between 2004 and 2006 by Metier, whose previous owners only recently released the session recordings that were edited and mastered in 2013. This cycle is much more than just a musical representation of pioneer photographers - only one section relates directly to such. The booklet contains a detailed essay of doctorate standard by Ian Pace and an extended version with hundreds of musical examples is available to download.
