Schlippenbach, Alexander Von - Twelve Tone Tales - Volume 1

SKU 34-Intakt 115
Alexander von Schlippenbach: Piano

"Schlippenbach’s ‘Tales’ have a stunning stentorian elegance. He leavens the starkness of the tone rows with chords and time values that create split-second splashes of harmonic color and shifting rhythmic feels. In the improvised section of the ‘Tales,’ Schlippenbach drives these elements to the brink of the jazz idiom one moment, and atomization the next. Each of the ‘Tales’ is followed by a varying number of tracks that can heard as an antiphonal four-part series that moves progressively towards jazz, culminating in a sequence where five of the six performances interpret jazz repertoire."
