Editorial Reviews

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.

spectralists composers--- if we can still maintain this ontology of existence today,but perhaps for historical reasons we can---- they have always relied heavily on the poetic image,the nostalgic spaces,historical winters,"la terre", unknown spaces for phanthoms to emerge from overtone contemplation . . . . the movement of the seasons, of time, "les printemps", the romantic icon,and the narcissistic to sustain their music.

Dufourt has delved deeper into the repertoire of visual arts, painterly context for concepts of tone,and reference that help structure the moments he creates.
His music unfolds with great detail and care for time;perhaps a post-modern paradigm. He has staid away from the voice, perhaps distrusting the fidelity of the printed romantic word. Instead he likes to have a conceptual gulf a distance between him and the materials he deploys.
He has been prolific regarding the piano; ensemble works with the piano,and other solos,on nature"rastlose","Meerstille" and also a full-bodied "piano concerto" . . . . .
There has always been an element of restraint in his music, high degrees of control; it is science that guides the acoustic phenomenon,we must remember. . . but that seems to get skewed, disregarded when the reality of creating a musical work for a public is the agenda. This always gives way to the romantic impulse,We have never left it within modernity. . . the long line,the ferocious unending "storms",resonant tremors, Lisztian gusts of fistfulls of tones,exploiting basso registers for single clangorous gong-like tones, the rhapsodic.
I don't know why in print and interview the spectralists deny their affinity to the romantic road of the emotions.
