I was very happy to see the name of Meg Blumberg returning to our blog as my former experiences with this pianist's music was no short of memorable. Today I am listening to her recently released "Klaar".
Delicate yet confident the piece waltzes is on a three-count and a well-refined, elaborate melody. Hypnotizing and illusive the notes capture a mood that's inviting, peculiar and somewhat eerie, like some sonic dark alley in a beautiful city or - a single light in an uninhabited place away from the society. Played at the highest level, the pianist delivers this masterfully written composition all at once without a moment of hesitation and a spirit that's present and powerful.
