“Transmuting orchestral qualities into piano music” inspired Busoni to arrange Schönberg’s piano piece. By contrast, many extended piano techniques distort the piano sounds and blur their origin. Reminiscences, paraphrases, quotations and echoes of Debussy and Beethoven’s “speaking expression,” music box melodies and sound collages arouse familiar associations and link up with the diverse sound world of the extended piano.

With video projection from inside the piano.

Followed by piano preparation close up. Observe and experiment!
