Two extraordinary keyboard virtuosos are in the foreground these performances by the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Peter Rundel and Emilio Pomàrico, respectively. Wolfgang Mitterer, born in East Tyrol in 1958, has made name for himself as both a composer and an organist. In this performance of his extensive composition Crush 1-5, he himself takes the role of the improvising soloist, who in a most virtuosic manner transcends the electronically extended orchestral part. The second virtuoso is internationally renowned pianist Nicolas Hodges, who has won particularly high regard in the contemporary music community. In this live recording he dedicates himself to the finely-carved soundscapes of Isabel Mundry's second piano concerto, Non-Places (2012). According to the composer, the concerto represents an attempt to musically capture the scenery of an airport, a strange non-place between bustling activity and the solitary state of waiting.
