An expansion of the notion of music itself is necessarily linked to an extension of the instrumental boundaries; the piano cannot be spared from this process, lest it permanently become a “piece of furniture,” as Helmut Lachenmann had already characterized it in the late 1970?s. Which paths the extension can take is demonstrated by Sebastian Berweck on this CD, with compositions which approach the dissolution of ossified pianistic convention from a variety of perspectives.
