Along the Polwechsel path towards a reflected reintegration of the once
Excluded musical parameters, the two composers for this CD, Michael Moser and Werner Dafeldecker, have gone one step further while also reflecting.
Polwechsel’s own history: traditional parameters are reintroduced into the original Polwechsel idiom as disturbances, refractions or inclusions.
The invitation extended to guest soloist John Tilbury is also part of the reflected reintegration of traditional elements and the extension of Polwechsel's concept, which they develop in their cautious and persistent approach: it is a reference to both the tradition of free improvisation and the reductionist currents in modern composition, for Tilbury is not only a proven Feldman specialist, but also long-time pianist for AMM.
