This is a most unusual collection of piano works, beautifully played and interpreted by Alexei Lubimov.His playing is notable for its restraint and delicacy.
Der Bote apparently translates as 'The Messenger' and is, in Lubimov's words a selection of elegiac works : mysterious,haunting

Upon hearing in a shop with excellent headphones even Cage sounds great. And when I bought it through this organ it still sounded great. You thought Cage was all prepared piano ? Think again. His piece for piano is quite melodic and graceful. Lubimov has chosen well and his playing is, to my untrained ear, pleasing. I am an ECM fan so he may be too 'easy listening' for some purists. But it is well worth the listen for the Cage and the Bach.
