ArtistsSteffen Schleiermacher (piano)
The titles of the short cycles very much refer to the real world. Suburbis depicts street scenes in Barcelona, a guitarist endeavours to get a waltz going, gypsies form the topic of conversation, suddenly an old gray mare appears, and then a beggar concludes the series with hurdy-gurdy distress signals. The festivities in Fêtes lointaines, hints, mere impressions, are heard in the distance – which is why the instructions at the end read: “To be played like an echo.”
Mompou resembles Erik Satie, whom he had the opportunity to meet in Paris and learned to respect. The “Manfred Bürki” Steinway D grand piano presents its very transparent colour in contact with Steffen Schleiermacher’s fine-touch fingertips.
