“This context is what I see as a landscape, not only in the physical sense but also in a much broader sense, a landscape that is a mirror of the pattern of one’s internal being, a landscape that gets its significance and meaning from the human reflection on it.”
For his debut piano album, Yuval Zorn takes the listener on a journey of contrasts around the world, through the lens of the sometimes painful, sometimes joyous, human experience. Among the repertoire chosen for this album, we hear the first recording of Skiá by Israeli composer Samir Odeh-Tamimi, which Yuval describes as “a passionate, visceral exploration of the limits of space, sound and time.”
Landscape features music that surpasses borders and cultures. Varied music reflects their varied environments, but ultimately in their mutual awe for nature and the world around them, these composers have more in common than perhaps thought.
