Genre: Classical Artists

The Dutch composer Douwe Eisenga presents on The Piano Files a selection of his work for one, two and even four pianos. Eisenga is a real eclecticus and does with every style what he wants. The musical history is his hunting area. The Piano Files reflects Eisenga's affinity with Minimal Music. Discovering Eisenga by means of his piano compositions is a must. The music is performed by Jeroen van Veen, Sandra van Veen and Marcel Worms. Press Quotes: "Enchanting and inspiring" ? "Music with a generosity that has no borders" 'The compositions manage to captivate the listener by their unexpected influences of other elements from the history of music and a greatly varied language of tone, remaining within the limits of minimalism' Cloud Atlas is written in 2008 for the production Cloud Atlas - together with pieces from five other composers - inspired by the novel of David Mitchell, who wrote about this piece: "Eisenga's composition is beautiful, It is joyous, transcendent, and makes me homesick for a place I've never been". Les Chants Estivaux (The Summer Songs) is a quadraphonic composition for four pianos. During the Dutch premiere in 2009 the audience could walk around in a special installation, build by O+A Architects. The special character of the piece fits perfect to a setting that was common tot the Minimal Music Performances in the 1980s. Les Chants Estivaux is music for everlasting summers. Theme I is one of the earliest pieces Douwe Eisenga wrote. The music is exemplary for all his later work: steady repeated patterns, combined with lyrical melodies. City Lines was written in 2006 and was composed and inspired by hearing Tubular Bells again after may years and Simeon ten Holt's Horizon. The result was this enchanting music, based on a Dutch Folk Tune, evolving into a lovely, pianistic written piece of music. Growing Worm was written for the new-blues-project from Dutch pianist Marcel Worms. To be honest, the music contains no blues at all.
