Product details

Performed by ARIA-Award winner Tamara-Anna Cislowska and the composer herself, Butterflying is the first major survey of the piano music of Elena Kats-Chernin.

Ever since her childhood in Uzbekistan, the piano has been - in her own words - Kats-Chernin's 'best friend'. At the age of six she wrote her first piano piece, 'Lullaby', which she later revised for her youngest son and is presented on this album as Lullaby for Nick. From this work to pieces written in 2015, Butterflying presents the full range of Kats-Chernin's extraordinary compositional palette: irresistibly lyrical works such as Waltz of Things Past and Butterflying (originally composed for the opening ceremony of the 2003 Rugby World Cup), rags and waltzes, and iconic works such as Eliza Aria and Slicked Back Tango. The album features 14 world premiere recordings.
Many of the pieces are performed solo by Tamara-Anna Cislowska. Others are presented in versions for piano four hands, with Elena joining Tamara-Anna to resume their long-standing friendship and collaboration in performances which are half-composed, half-improvised.

Duration: 128 min.

Liner booklet includes programme notes by the composer, and biographical notes on the composer and performer.
