VOIX VOILÉES (Veiled Voices) : spectral piano music
MARILYN NONKEN

Marilyn Nonken is without doubt one of the leading exponents of modern piano music, and also Director of Piano Studies at New York University's Steinhardt School. She has a particular affinity with the spectral school of music, as exemplified in her previous CD of the works of Tristan Murail (92097) - Metier's best seller. This sequel features a major (half-hour-long) work by another of the founding generation of spectral music, Hugues Dufourt, and awesome pieces by young American composer Joshua Fineberg.

As part of our planned programmes of musical information we will soon have available a video in which Marilyn Nonken talks about the making of this CD and about spectral music.

“Marilyn Nonken is a persuasive advocate for spectral music ... [she] has followed her outstanding 2CD set of Murail's complete piano music with [this disc]. Dense, mercilessly virtuosic writing ... Nonken handles the incremental tension superbly.” - Graham Lock (International Piano)

“This [new CD] features compositions by Joshua Fineberg and Hugues Dufourt and answers the question 'Can one still write for the piano today?' with a resounding yes.” - ‘Pliable' (OvergrownPath.com)
