Pianist Stephen Clarke plays seven works for solo piano by Estonian-born, Canadian-naturalized composer Udo Kasemets that focus on specific designs of micro-detail.

Kasemets, Udo
Pythagoras Tree

Kasemets, Udo: Pythagoras Tree (Hat [now] ART)
Label: Hat [now] ART    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Estonian-born (1919), Canadian-naturalized composer Udo Kasemets was a pupil of Hermann Scherchen and Ernst Krenek during his studies in Stuttgart and Darmstadt, and took from them a healthy eclecticism and questioning of conventions. Symbolically, these scores for solo piano can be seen as Kasemets' equivalent of architectural drawing, focusing on specific designs of micro-detail with an intimacy of expression that suggests his vision of an "open and unknowable horizon" on the path towards discovering "the universal concepts embracing all life, not just music."-Art Lange
