Praised for the 'self-effacing intensity and intelligence' of his playing, young Jordanian-born pianist Karim Said - hailed by International Piano magazine as 'one to watch' - here presents a compelling programme of early twentieth-century music, selected to mark the First World War centenary and which reveals his captivating style.

Six unique personal languages are explored in this debut album, as Said recounts a period of dramatic social and artistic change that gave rise to an early modernist style imbued with fragments of the Romantic past.
