Stefan Wesolowski

Liebestod


imprec397   CD


The album Liebestod  by Polish composer Stefan Wesolowski consists of repetitive compositions written for piano, brass instruments, strings and electronics. 
The title itself is derived from Wagner's Tristan and Isolde which says a lot about Wesolowski's primary inspirations. Liebestod shows a tremendous amount of respect for classical music but Wesolowski is far from making literal references to it. Wesolowski shows his own unique musical language; rough and radical at some points, yet full of intense nostalgia and beauty. This album includes a contribution from Michael Jacaszek.

Recommended if you like: Arvo Part, Steve Reich, William Basinski, Jacaszek
