Philip Glass: Etudes for Piano

Orange Mountain Music is proud to present Philip Glass’s “Etudes for Piano” performed by Dutch pianist Feico Deutekom. Following up on his successful first album on OMM, “Musical Offering” Deutekom’s new album is a new examination of Glass’s piano Etudes, one of the landmark bodies of work in the 21st Century, from a new perspective. The most common approach for pianists is as “completists” and to simple record Glass’s twenty Etudes in straight order. Deutekom, one of the preeminent Glass specialists on the scene today, takes a much more personal approach. Deutekom performs and records the Etudes in a sequence which tells a very different story from Glass’s own order. In fact, there’s a historical case to be made for re-sequencing Glass’s Etudes as the composer did himself when he renumbered 1-6 after the premieres. The result is a travelogue – a time-traveling musical adventure with a different dramatic arc from the familiar sequence. Beginning with Etude No.2, Deutekom then jumps ahead more than a decade of compositional time to Etude No.17, then backwards to No. 16, then further back to No.4... the listener is transported by Deutekom’s playing in the form of an old story told in a new way. Recorded in Middelburg in the Netherlands, the album has a four page booklet inside a digipack and cover art by the renowned artist Johannes Bosgra.
