Hannesson, Mark / Dante Boon / Anastassis Philippakopoulos : hannesson . boon . philippakopoulos (Edition Wandelweiser Records)

Three solo piano works from three composers--Mark Hannesson, Dante Boon, and Anastassis Philippakopoulos--are performed by Dante Boon in this studio album recorded in Berlin; three extremely compatible works that prove to be quintessential examples of Wandelweiser minimalism finding melody, progression and abstraction in subtle and elusive ways; sublime.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Three works for solo piano, played by Boon. One each by Hannesson and Boon and a set of four shorter pieces by Philippakopoulos. The transition between compositions is almost seamless and, indeed, it's possible to listen to the works as a single, continuous piece of music. Hannesson's 'signposts' is apparently sourced from the 2016 Wandelweiser catalog, the choice of which "fragments" to play left to the pianist. Largely individual notes, a tonal feel without a specific tonality, allowed to hang in space, expertly placed by Boon; in several ways an archetypal Wandelweiser piece and a very lovely one. 'duo (2h)', by Boon, while very much in line with the preceding work, expands things just a bit, inserting a few more subtle chords, suffusing the music with a warm light--gorgeous. The four 'piano pieces' by Philippakopoulos add just a tinge more melody, providing the hint of a line, softly undulating like a bit of seaweed in a tide pool. A beautiful conclusion to a very moving collection of sounds."-Brian Olewnick, Just Outside



"Mark Hannesson's music often is about people: be it his children, the shuffling of feet or the victims of a US drone attack in Pakistan. Signposts is about composers: the ones listed in the Wandelweiser catalogue of 2016. Their music can be heard in the fragments chosen freely by the pianist.

Anastassis Philippakopoulos writes melodies: the melody has become a piece. There are scales and permutations, variations but no motifs. The melodies are mostly about what he sees: the sea, the sky, mountains.

Duo (2h) by Dante Boon is a duo for pianist. There are 40 measures and each hand has a solo twice. It feels like a very personal piece to its composer and had never been played in public before this recording was made."-liner notes
