Kissin tells us that he began this work in 1986, but abandoned it early on, returning to it a few years ago and moulding it into its fantastical present state; it’s an absolute firecracker! ... Henle have certainly done him proud too, with a lovely score that appears in their standard house style, which of course musicians everywhere love. After the title page, the four pieces appear in order, spaciously and beautifully presented. Kissin’s writing is detailed, with precise performing directions throughout. ... Congratulations must go too, to G. Henle Verlag for recognising Kissin’s talent as a creator, taking a leap by supporting a contemporary composer as they already so wonderfully do the established core classics. Bravo indeed!
