Album Remarks & Appraisals:
This is Italian pianist Glauco Venier's first solo album for ECM, and as with his exemplary work with Norma Winstone on her acclaimed albums Distances, Stories Yet To Tell, and Dance Without Answer, his disciplined pianism always serves the needs of the pieces. Miniatures is a quiet and thoughtful disc, in which solo piano is augmented by subtle, discreet percussion. The fifteen 'miniatures' include new music by Venier as well as adaptations of Gurdjieff, Komitas, Dufay and more.
