Reviews

These two short works (UE 36039, UE 36040) by one of the leading composers of our time are full of atmosphere in a complex sound-world. Both works are extremely short and minimalist but, within the 19 or so bars of each piece, lie many rhythmic complexities needing to be pieced together by both players. (…) Piano Journal (NL) 10/2013

(...) A gentle sense of organised freedom and otherworldliness is unquestionably encouraged by the persistent triplet crotchet figurations in the second part. As in "Canzonetta", Berio makes much use of ostinatos in both parts. In Touch the extremes of the keyboard are explored impressively, with exquisite sonorities resulting from carefully gauged intervals, presented at a subdued dynamic level for the most part. (...) International Piano 5/2013
