This solo-piano recital illuminates the intersections where composition and improvisation, man and nature, and action and reflection meet. All of the music appreciates the moment yet exists in a state of becoming.
While Florian Hoefner utilizes these modest pieces as vehicles to explore the nexus between the preconceived and the purely extemporized, he doesn’t deliver them with cagey intent. Instead, he simply lets everything flow, painting attractive pictures that consist of “composed islands” surrounded by uncharted waters. Where the shores of certainty and the seas of discovery exactly meet is often a mystery, but it’s one that needs no solving.
