Anders Eliasson, born in 1947 in Borlänge in the Swedish province of Dalarna (died in 2013 in Stockholm), found in the early 1970s -- after a long, intensive and often desperate search, with the study of traditional and current musical languages and techniques -- the key that opened up in him that uncharted, unlimited space which he explored thereafter, sharing it with each listener who opens himself to it. Andreas Skouras has now recorded the complete works of Eliasson for solo keyboard instruments. What the work group Sequenza signifies for Luciano Berio and the solo series for Kalevi Aho (NEOS 10915CD), is for Anders Eliasson the Disegno ("drawing"): a series of mostly solo pieces for various instruments that run through his (chamber music) oeuvre like a red thread. The enormous Suolo is doubtless the climax of Eliasson's piano oeuvre. Disegno per clavicembalo is striking in its close relationship to J. S. Bach. The choice of instrument underlines this relationship, but it is the motif B-A-C-H that forms the compressed motivic center of the composition. Personnel: Andreas Skouras - piano, harpsichord.
