Catalogue Number: 04O064
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Whether for multiple pianos or for just one player, 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. 5 CDs. Jeroen van Veen (piano).
