Virtuoso pianist Pedja Muzijevic offers an illuminating program.

The virtuoso pianist Pedja Muzijevic was turned on to the music of John Cage by dancers. As he explains, "Mikhail Baryshnikov introduced me to the ethereal In a Landscape and we subsequently used it in our "Solos with Piano or not..." program. Then Trisha Brown choreographed a few of the Sonatas and Interludes and asked me to play them with her company... I promptly fell in love with the strange and interesting world of Sonatas and Interludes and started thinking that it would be wonderful to expose them to a variety of other music... Rest assured this program has no underlining story, title or deep meaning... Putting dried figs in a pork stew doesn't make any sense... It does taste good though!"

Review:
"The Bosnian-born pianist Pedja Muzijevic is another bold mixer of music as exemplified by this invigorating CD. ...Muzijevic is an alert and nimble pianist, but can also conjure depth and poetry..." (Fanfare)

"...an odd but compelling album..." (The New Yorker)
