The History of Photography in Sound
Ian Pace (piano)
This is no less than a seminal and milestone recording in modern piano music. The awesome Michael Finnissy’s 'History of Photography in Sound', a five and a half hour epic of genius, was recorded in several sessions between 2004 and 2006.
This cycle is much more than just a musical representation of pioneer photographers – only one section directly relates to such: the title refers to 'photography in sound' - i.e. the representation in music of events, people, places, cultures, and above all, philosophies. It is the recording for which Métier have had more requests than any other, and in all fairness to composer and pianist, should find itself in every recommended list of contemporary music.
The 100 page booklet contains a detailed essay of doctorate standard by Ian Pace.
