Koechlin (1867-1950)

Description:

Influenced by his predecessors, including Franck, Fauré, and Debussy, the French composer Quecrin (1867-1950) expanded traditional harmony and compositional techniques in his own unique way, sometimes even writing atonal works. He was also a good teacher and a man of many influences, writing on modern harmony, counterpoint, and taking inspiration from movies. At night he would gaze through his telescope at the stars, trying to unravel the mysteries of the universe, and at other times he was an avid reader of myths, travel books, and books about unknown countries. This masterpiece, "Persian Time," is a piano piece that is unique to this intellectual and dreamer.The suite, subtitled "Suite for Piano based on Pierre Loti's 'Towards Ispahn,'" is composed of 16 pieces that are full of his characteristic serenity and oriental atmosphere, with ancient sounds that can sometimes be heard and hot desert winds that seem to make us forget the hectic pace of the present. The sounds are stirring. Ralph van Raadt, who is probably the best performer of this kind of music, plays it with ease. Naxos Japan
