A collection of new compositions by Eyvind Kang that are quiet in nature and serve as works for solo piano, string quintet, and more with sonic soundscapes similar to Morton Feldman but with Kang's unique style.

Kang, Eyvind

Kang, Eyvind: Grass (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Eyvind Kang's newest CD collects quiet new compositions spanning the past five years, which he considers to be among his truly breakthrough works. Music for solo piano, string quintet and more take the unique sonic environments of Morton Feldman to an entirely new place via the metaphors of agricultural poetry, Chinese medicine, sweatlodge and Ikat weaving. Mesmerizing work from the elusive and ever-stimulating mind of Eyvind Kang!"-Tzadik
