The composition “Ereb Afrik”, by Burkhard Stangl, is scored for two pianos and a single player, namely Hannes Löschel, to whom it’s dedicated. In the first of the two CDs of this set, the Austrian pianist/composer plays a great version of the piece, alternating charming Feldmanesque softness and more controversial explorations of the various quarters of the instruments, often used as a percussion (including their pedals); meanwhile, Novotny deals with “sound projection”, taking bits and parts and modifying their essence. Novotny and Löschel are joined by Stangl himself (on guitar and electronics) in the second disc, where the trio reworks and expands the first version through stern improvisational skills and more dramatic treatments, giving the music an aleatory temperament that seldom allows the return to the calmer waters of the original; at the end of the record, each one of the members presents a personal short remix, Stangl’s version being the most engrossing. Johannes Novohradsky dealt with all the visuals, available both in the booklet and the data track of the first CD, giving his great contribution to an already commendable project.
