One might be able to describe Aperghis' works for solo instruments as literally inventing a new sound language.
'I always have this mental image of a small, imaginary theatre. When I compose music, however, I don't think of the musicians' bodies and their movements. I simply think of the music. I compose sound-gestures, not bodily gestures.' (Georges Aperghis) In accordance with his line of thinking, he sets sound gestures to music in his instrumental pieces, proceeding from linguistic units - even in pieces which have absolutely no textual source. One might be able to describe his works for solo instruments as literally inventing a new sound language, as 'speaking music'. This album is part of Klangforum Wien's 'Solo' 5-CD series of recordings of pieces for one performer, which is the ensemble's response to the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic.
