CD review: #4 by Andrzej Pietrewicz

0

Andrzej Pietrewicz, instrumentalist, composer; Laura and Caroline Joy Clarke, vocalists

Self-produced EP

★★★✩✩

This EP brings together six exclusively instrumental pieces, excepting the last, which features female voices. The composer, Andrzej Pietrewicz, draws on various influences, from jazz to experimental music, including neo-classicism. In the third piece, Pietrewicz indulges in polyphony in the style of Baroque composers. The use of the flute from the very first piece creates a bright and playful tone. The sounds of cello, guitar and piano add to the mix. Despite the friction between instruments, softness predominates.
