I've never heard him but I've found this video fantastic!! Thanks a lot for sharing. It's interesting to see how virtuosity is much more than how fast you can play, and the fact that the most difficult piece to play is based on intonation difficulty shows how important is training year for a musician.

This is the piece:




Check Cael's video for details.

I don't really know what to think of it. I was listening to it for 15 minutes, and some parts sound okay, while some parts sound quite off smile.gif

Unsettling is the best word I can find.
I quite enjoy it but there is thing that seems incomprehensible. Like its not meant to our ears.

That's a good way of putting it. It does almost feel alien smile.gif

Now that is something different. Eerie and hard to digest. I think its very interesting but I don't think I would sit around often listening to this. But yeah, the virtuosity seems off the charts.

Interesting to be sure (I like the piece) but not revolutionary or any more difficult in relation to other contemporary classical music written since about 1918 or so.

Webern - 5 pieces for sting quartet. Besides 1/4 tones it employs 'extended' technique on the strings: using the wood of the bow, playing on the bridge, lotsa harmonics, etc. But in spite of all that it's an incredibly beautiful piece of music.



Penderecki - Threnody



Crumb - Black Angels



Xenakis - Metastasis



Ligeti - Lux Aeterna



There's a hundred year's worth of stuff like this.

Here's a timeline.
Instructive but incomplete.
