solo & chamber music
From Sonorous Explorations to "Open Tonality"
Internationally-renowned composer Wieslaw Rentowski presents CHAMBER WORKS on Navona Records, an album whose works span three decades of Rentowski’s chamber music oeuvre. Many of the works featured on the album are inspired by Louisiana and the Southern United States. The 1986 piece Baton Rouge for Prepared Piano celebrates the multitude of cultural traditions found in southern Louisiana and employs a variety of articulation techniques to create unique prepared piano sonorities. La Fiesta for Cello and Piano (1991) is a demanding work for cello that reflects the confluence of Spanish and Mexican cultures with others found in the Southern United States. More recent compositions include Affabile from 2017, whose musical language is more traditional and emphasizes melody and harmony while introducing nontraditional meter changes and musical textures. CHAMBER WORKS is a varied and inviting release that showcases the breadth and depth of Rentowski’s compositions.
