Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Walter Zimmermann’s music is often introverted and sometimes broodingly hesitant, but it is also enigmatically intimate; turbulent atmospheres, large gestures, and emphatic forms are foreign to him. Zimmermann found his place apart from the avant-garde streams coming out of Darmstadt and Cologne. Seeking simplicity, he distanced himself from the neo-expressionistic tendencies that arose in the 1970s, orienting himself to the individualism of US composers and the diatonic character of the early works of John Cage.

Zimmermann’s music is individual, as well as distinct and unmistakable. It does not pursue fixed architectonic forms, but rather crystalline expanses, a hovering openness. Zimmermann’s compositional motivation comes from unusual sources. He draws impulses from ancient mythology, Renaissance symbolism, philosophy, literature, and the visual arts.

In the present recording, Nicolas Hodges plays works written in the five years between 2001 and 2006. music facilitates the ordering of structural elements. For Zimmermann, it is a kind of laboratory for his compositional methods. Voces abandonadas is a counterpart to Beginner’s Mind for one pianist with singing (1975), which was inspired by Shunryu Suzuki and Zen Buddhism. Voces abandonadas is based on two collections of aphorisms by the Argentinian poet Antonio Porchia.

Zimmermann formed brief emblematic sound representations out of the 514 sentences and aphorisms in Voces abandonadas. As Zimmermann writes, “The entire book with its two volumes has been translated into 514 ‘sentences’, most of which last only one measure, often only part of a measure, or the duration of a fermata. These ‘sentences’ follow one another without pause. In the compositional process, the sequence of the sentences or aphorisms reflected their sequence in the books.
