SIMEON TEN HOLT (b.1923): Complete Multiple Piano Works - Canto Ostinato, Lemniscaat, Horizon, Incantatie IV, Meandres, Shadow nor Prey.
Catalogue Number: 03N071
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Ten Holt specialises in consonant, readily accessible minimalism, woven out of melodic fragments which produce an agreeable sense of mesmeric stasis intermittently relieved by an agreeable quickening and agitation. Sections based on contrasting cells adopt their own emotional identity; not so much meditative and calming as obsessively hypnotic. 11 CDs. Irene Russo, Fred Oldenburg, Sandra & Jeroen van Veen (pianos).
