Format: Audio CD
"But is this music listenable? Very much so. Kievman writes with craft, humor, and imagination. The first two brief works, Introdictus and Toccatada, are virtuoso cascades of notes, but are tautly conceived, in the manner of the Chopin Etudes. Harpo is a longer, more elastic composition that honors the remarkable combination of focus and freedom in the jazz piano work of Keith Jarrett and the late Bill Evans. Meditation is the most ambitious work on the program, long and full of silences. At 24 1/2 minutes, the piece presents a serious challenge to the patience of the listener for this type of material. Most performances of the monumental slow movement of Beethoven's Hammerklavier are shorter. Does Kievman live up to his audacity? Yes and no. Beethoven is a faulty comparison, as his music is linear and ariose. Kievman seems to be influenced, more than anything, by the primeval rhythms of nature, which do not always correspond to the man-made laws of music in the Western world. In some sections, the pianist plays sparsely arrayed chords as cicadas chirp and streams burble on tape. Elsewhere, the piano mimics the relentless noise of the general ambient landscape. The contrast of the faultless logic of the natural sonic environment and the contemplative, very human exposition of Kievman's musical ideas is poignant and provocative. The composer might disagree, but this sounds like existential music to my ears. This is the antithesis of dentist-office music, but late at night, and with maybe a bottle of good scotch at the side, this music should get the wheels turning.Read more ›

"Carson Kievman came to my attention several years ago with his Symphony No. 2(42), a weighty, transcendent and sometimes hallucinatory memorial to Mozart that rang the changes on music from the Viennese composer's Requiem, specifically the "Lacrymosa." When New Albion Records released their recording of Kievman's Symphony No. 2(42) in 1996 (NA081CD), they indicated that a New Albion CD of the composer's complete piano music, as played by David Arden, was forthcoming. That disc never appeared, now it's here, albeit on a different label. The classical music recording industry is full of mysteries! Kievman was born in 1949 and received his Masters of FIne Arts degree from the California Institute of the Arts in 1977. He's spent most of his time in Germany and in the United States, and his music has been used by dance companies and in museums, as well as in the more traditional theaters and concert halls. Recently, Kievman was granted a Naumberg Fellowship to Princeton University. He's been around and received some acclaim, yet I believe that this is only the second all-Kievman CD to become available. This disc's overall title is The Temporary & Tentative Extended Piano, which is the earliest work here, and the last on the CD. It is a kind of mad music theater, one performing version of this piece requires a page-turning "Butler" and several other "Servants," and the pianist sits on aq spring-supported platform where he also has access to cowbells. The work ends with the performer collapsing in exhaustion. It is in this format that the work was performed for Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival, and page 3 of CRI's booklet has the photograph to prove it.
