Hans Abrahamsen (b.1952): Zählen und Erzählen (Counting & Recounting) - Four Pieces for Orchestra; Piano Concerto; 10 Studies for Piano / Tamara Stefanovich, piano; WDR SO Cologne; Stockhammer

Notes & Reviews:

Hans Abrahamsen's musical language, full of echoes and memories, fascinates and captivates the listener. His music is celebrated on the big concert stages of the world, with the Berlin Philharmomic, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and conductors like Andris Nelsons and Kent Nagano performing his compositions in their programs. His first collaboration with Winter & Winter, 2009's Schnee, was followed by 2013's Walden/Wald. Now comes the anticipated third album, Zählen und Erzählen ("Counting and Recounting"). Three pieces can be heard on Zählen und Erzählen, which form a unit: Four Pieces for Orchestra, Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, and 10 Studies for Piano. The Piano Concerto, the album's centerpiece, was written a few years ago after a long creative break. The musical source of the Piano Concerto, as well as of the Four Pieces, are the 10 Studies for Piano from the years 1983 - 1998. Abrahamsen dedicates this program to his most important instrument, the piano, thus expressing his constant commitment to the German Romantic repertoire. Hans Abrahamsen creates music that speaks from the depths of the soul.
