Lodewijk Crommelin


Different sounds, colours and impressions, that’s what this first CD of pianist Lodewijk Crommelin on the Dutch label 7 Mountain Records has to offer. Featuring works for solo piano, written around the year 1900; a vibrant time in music history full of new developments, resulting in never heard variation and suprises.

Next to compositions of Claude Debussy, Franz Liszt and Isaac Albéniz, pieces of the American composer Charles Griffes (less known as they should be) can be heard.

Liszt’ sparkling trills, dreamy sounds in Griffes’ ‘Clouds’, angry fortissimo’s in Fête-dieu à Seville (Albéniz), true Debussian beauty: a piano CD who displays deep love for playing the piano.
