Vytautas Bacevičius: Piano Music, Volume Two

VYTAUTAS BACEVIČIUS Piano Music, Volume Two

The Lithuanian pianist and composer Vytautas Bacevičius (1905–70) is one of the undiscovered pioneers of the twentieth century. This second volume of his piano music presents works written between 1927 and 1966 and shows the evolution of his musical language from the post-Skryabin style of the early works, via the influence of Debussy, Prokofiev and Stravinsky, to a highly individual modernism, akin to that of his fellow radicals Edgard Varèse and Stefan Wolpe – all three of them Europeans in exile in New York.
