Transatlantic Swing: Works For Piano (Hat [now] ART)
Label: Hat [now] ART    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Transatlantic Swing is a CD of music rich in elusive connections. Some of the music is "transatlantic" because it's music by Europeans influenced by the Americas, some because it's music by an American played by a European. In someway all the music "swings", but no two pieces swing in the same way. There's also a network of friendships between the composers represented here, although together they don't represent any one tendency in contemporary musical aesthetics.And there's a network of shared preoccupations in the music here - the balance between process and fantasy in musical form, the dynamics of sound and silence, the reconfiguration of popular music - but not all these preoccupations occur in every piece."-Christopher Fox
