BEGINNER'S MIND:
Piano Music by Walter Zimmermann
IAN PACE

Walter Zimmermann is a leading figure in German new music, a prolific composer and a tireless advocate of other artists' work.  Deserving to be much better known, his works, set in a deceptively simple way, are best heard in groups so as to emphasize his rich and coherent personal style.  Performed by leading British interpreter of contemporary music, Ian Pace and recorded  in the composer's presence.

“It is all exquisite, highly poeticised music that deserves to be heard; Ian Pace's performances are typically indefatigable” – Andrew Clements (The Guardian)
GUARDIAN CLASSICAL CD OF THE WEEK

"...complex ideas presented with endearing simplicity… fascinating, it's one of those sound-worlds in which you just have to allow yourself to be absorbed and there's much pleasure to be had." - Andrew McGregor (BBC Radio 3 CD review)
