A poetic moment in the music of FREDERIC CHOPIN, as interpreted by Icelandic musician OLAFUR ARNALDS and German-Japanese pianist ALICE SARA OTT. Chopin revolutionized Romantic piano music with unprecedented virtuosity and emotional expression. In passing he created delicate passages of sublime music where a thousand pound piano virtually disappears: one could say it becomes "transparent."
Today, musicians work directly with sound and space in their recordings, and we have a whole sub-genre of Ambient and contemplative music for piano. On this transmission of Hearts of Space, we focus on those moments of heightened clarity, depth, and spirituality, on a program called TRANSPARENT PIANO.
