Seven Thoughts Considered as Music
LKMP X410110/ HL 217195
Bruce Adolphe’s solo piano work depicts seven provocative and profound statements. The composer has carefully selected thoughts that are intellectually stimulating and emotionally charged, and —of particular importance— that use imagery suggesting musical parallels. Inspiration is drawn from quotes by Heraclitus, Rilke, Kafka, Emerson, Novalis, Chief Seattle, and Shankara. The piece is dedicated to Helen Heslop and Carlo Grante and was recorded by Carlo Grante on Naxos American Classics (8.559805).
