Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
On Memory (2003-04) is the big project here, a 12-movement suite that takes past musics, memories, associations and techniques and gently jumbles them up. Couperin emerges from blurred depths in the second piece. Bach is played mostly backwards in No 4. No 9 gives us shards of Ravel, Henry Mancini and Janácek while No 11 elides Chopin and Bill Evans. The attitude may be stigmatised as postmodern but the composer is anxious to fashion an expressively charged language for each link in the chain: it isn't just a game. Andrew Zolinsky is the dedicatee of On Memory and the music suits his contained, super-refined piano sound.
