Tor Espen Aspaas MIRRIC CANONMIRROR CANON - Tor Espen Aspaas PIANO

The First and Second Viennese Schools and their associated cultural environments constitute a fascinating, enigmatic musical terrain of strong mutual relationships. This recording seeks to explore points of tension between the two epochs by contrasting four central compositions – masterpieces which constantly inform our perception of what music is and what music can be. Two canons, mirrored in their own reflection.

Tor Espen Aspaas PAUL DUKAS (Simax 2004)Pianist Tor Espen Aspaas is one of the most outstanding and versatile musicians of his generation in Norway. Aspaas (born 1971) has since 2007 been professor at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo. He has been engaged as a soloist by all the professional Norwegian symphony orchestras, and by many international ensembles in collaboration with conductors including Frans Brüggen, Vasily Sinaysky, Christian Eggen and Michel Plasson. Aspaas has made several recordings, including a solo CD of Paul Dukas' complete piano works (on the label SIMAX Classics) which has received excellent reviews in the international press.
