Voces abandonadas for piano
ArtistsNicolas Hodges (piano)
In the present recording, Nicolas Hodges plays piano works written between 2001 and 2006. Piano music facilitates the ordering of structural elements. For Zimmermann, it is a kind of laboratory for his compositional methods. Voces abandonadas is a counterpart to Beginnerís Mind for one pianist with voice (1975), which was inspired by Shunryū Suzuki and Zen Buddhism. The later work is based on two collections of aphorisms by the Argentinian poet Antonio Porchia. Zimmermann formed brief emblematic sound representations out of the 514 sentences and aphorisms in Voces abandonadas. As Zimmermann writes, 'The entire book with its two volumes has been translated into 514 piano "sentences", most of which last only one measure, often only part of a measure, or the duration of a fermata. These "sentences" follow one another without pause. In the compositional process, the sequence of the sentences or aphorisms reflected their sequence in the books.'
