Steven Brown - Music for Solo Piano

Les Disques du Crepuscule
(TWI110: 708527180860)
Release date: 01/11/2019




20 tracks.

Crepuscule presents Music for Solo Piano, the debut solo album by Tuxedomoon founder member Steven Brown, originally released by the label in 1984.

Bewitching and melancholic, the all-instrumental set was originally recorded in 1982/83 and remains one of Steven’s best regarded works. The solo pieces for piano and clarinet range from avant-garde to classically-informed, while on several tracks Steven is joined by Tuxedomoon violinist Blaine L. Reininger. These include five selections from Tuxedomoon’s haunting ‘opera without words’ The Ghost Sonata, and three bonus tracks (Violencia, Melancolia, Final) from modern ballet Belly of the Whale, newly recorded in 2018.

Digitally remastered in 2018, this new Crepuscule edition includes liner notes and restores the original 1984 sleeve design by Patrick Rocques.
