Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Aki Takahashi’s follows up her acclaimed first disc of Xenakis piano works (which won a "Diapason d’or" in France) with this second volume, of works for piano with instruments. She is joined by an all-star cast of players: Rohan de Saram (formerly of the Arditti Quartet), The JACK Quartet, and the Callithumpian Consort conducted by Stephen Drury. All works are underrepresented in current recordings or difficult to find at all. Included is the first new recording in over 10 years of Xenakis’ landmark EONTA (1963) for piano, 2 trumpets & 3 trombones - a blistering work which rates among the most difficult solo piano pieces ever written.
