Description
Pianist/composer Stefan Litwin's program of music capturing the sounds of bells includes "La Cathédral engloutie" and "La vallée des cloches," two atmospheric pieces from Debussy's Préludes and Ravel's Miroirs, respectively. These moody and mysterious compositions contrast with Liszt's joyous Christmastime piece, the "Carillon" from L'arbre de Noël. Also here is Litwin's own setting of Edgar Allan Poe's onomatopoetic, Gothic poem "The Bells," about a group of ghouls in a bell tower.

"Michael Gielen has always favored serial technique in his compositions, and his Klavierstück in sieben Sätzen ('Piano Piece in Seven Movements') of 2001 is no exception. Subtitled 'Recycling der Glocken' ('Recycling of the Bells'), it gives us an inkling of what to expect before we even hear it. The piano soloist plays bell-like passages on both a regular grand and an upright prepared piano. Metal screws placed between the piano strings create the sound (more or less) of a gong, which is echoed by five Buddhist temple bells."—Audiophile Audition
