The new GENUIN CD by the piano duo Roelcke-Gremmelspacher is not only part of an exciting, interdisciplinary research project on the subject of complexity but features above all exhilarating piano music for twenty fingers. The result is more than the sum of the individual parts: Ligeti (Three Pieces), intoxicated by speed, creates superordinate constructs; Debussy (En blanc et noir) piles up tonalities and layers of meaning; and Messiaen, in his breathtaking Visions de l'Amen, unleashes a veritable storm of color. Great literature, magnificently played!
