|4-disc boxed set! Limited edition and out of print.
This is an excellent collection of solo piano work that would easily be worth twice the price. As Braxton fans know, the inspiration for his solo sax music was partially derived from hearing Stockhausen's solo piano music. Simply put, this collection of Braxton's compositions (including Comp. #1), performed brilliantly by Hildegaard Kleeb, signifies his musical influences, while revealing his tendency to open the piano to new musical possibilities. Listen to these recordings while reading Braxton's "Composition Notes"; you will find that Kleeb's playing is right on---and then some!
