ROTHKAMM: Opus Spongebobicum
Newest by the prolific and constantly moving Rothkamm - who is something of a phenomenon. Here he broaches very different territory indeed, with a 35 minute piece of constantly mutating, quote-infested, melodic, harmonic, romantic, ascerbic, brittle, contemporary, traditional, piano bar, concert hall, uncategoriseable piano music. It's a beautiful enigma, and a pleasure to listen to. Subtle but great. And, as ever, the sleeve-notes are exquisite.
