Product Notes

Known above all through his collaborations with the film-maker Kryszystof Kieslowski, Zbigniew Preisner is one of the most played and broadcast composers of our time. Yet there are few audio-only recordings of his music presently available. Thus the new album from the prince of the Minimalist piano, Jeroen van Veen, fills a significant gap in the market. The first half contains the set of Ten Easy Pieces for piano which are already popular as scores with countless student and amateur pianists. However only one recording has been made, not widely available, and this new Brilliant Classics recording will introduce many listeners to the uniquely haunting and inspiring sound world of Preisner. Although his trademark melodies are tinged with melancholy, several of the Easy Pieces are outgoing and exuberant such as To See More and The Art of Flying. The second half concentrates on piano arrangements of the film music which won Preisner his reputation. There are themes and extensive excerpts here from Kieslowski's Décalogue and the Trois Couleurs trilogy, starring Juliette Binoche, Julie Delpy and Jean-Louis Trintignant, through which millions of cinema-goers fell in love with Preisner's music. Also included are the main themes from three more recent films, The Double Life of Véronique, Fairytale and The Secret Garden, all of them haunting and bittersweet. This album is the latest in the hugely successful series of minimalist piano music albums made by Jeroen van Veen for Brilliant Classics. Previous best-sellers include music by Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass, Michael Nyman, Lodovico Einaudi and Yann Tiersen, composer of the music for Amélie. His recordings of Satie have been cited as reference versions by Classics Today, which acclaimed his 'outstanding musicianship'.
