Stunning, perfectly poised piano vignettes from US musician Karla Borecky - the perfect winter companion...
The Still Life comes seven years after Karla's debut solo recording Still In Your pocket via Sean McCann's excellent Recital label. Her involvement in other musical projects spans extensive projects such as Idea Fire Company, Tart (with Graham Lambkin), The Pickle Factory (whose Our Anthems LP is still very much slept on) and many others. Her focus here is solely on the piano with a series of minimalist pieces, laced with repetition and played with sense of restraint and patience that really allows the melodies and overtones of her instrument resonate within the atmosphere. Reduced down to reveal their own charm, each of her pieces lilt with a gentle sadness, glowing with a melancholy of times gone by whilst nodding to Satie’s timeless piano compositions, or eternal works of Dominique Lawalrée or that mythical Colette Roper record. Very special.. (Mint / New)
