It was maybe fate that it took this long to get everything complete, but I'm happy to let you know that my Piano Variations on Björk's "Overture" are finally available for download.
















The music is of course dedicated to Björk - so it was ideal and a nice coincidence, that I got the chance to release the music to celebrate her 50th birthday. 

After a lot of hurdles I can now conclude a long period of patient waiting. I'm also very happy with the recording. The final mastering now gives the listener (a kind of a new) special sound experience. It feels like your ears are positioned right over the piano strings, so you have the sensation of being part of the sound. Especially with headphones!
Many thanks to my friend Daniel Stenway for the opportunity to record the work on his Steinway Grand D in 2011. Thanks also to my best friend John Lotherington for always motivating and supporting me during these last years in terms of sorting out rights issues. Thanks to Michele Gaggia for the great second mastering of the recording. Thanks to Björk, Derek Birkett and Kobalt Music for permission!
