The music critic Emile Vuillermoz wrote about the pianist Debussy: “No one like him could transform a dissonant chord into a small, bronze or silver bell whose harmonic sound spreads out in all four directions.” Martin Klett’s interpretation is hardly inferior to this, although he chooses much more cautious tempi than the composer. The magical sound of the Préludes is, however, clearly sharpened by this. This aspect connects Debussy’s cycle with that of the American composer George Crumb. In the first volume of Makrokosmos, dedicated to the signs of the zodiac, the focus is not on the astronomical dimension, but on the astrological. In this sense, Crumb’s Makrokosmos is also a collection of character pieces, as developed in a more romantic sense by Robert Schumann in his piano works in the 19th century.A man with a passion for all music, and especially tango and jazz, the young German pianist Martin Klett presents a very interesting coupling here, juxtaposing the Premier Livre of Debussy’s Préludes with that of George Crumb’s Makrokosmos: two composers who each radically changed the musical language of their time.
The invitation to a journey presented by Debussy’s Préludes is a real door to a dream-world, thanks to its unique musical environment which allows the pianist to modulate tones and colours. While the world of George Crumb is less well-known, it is just as fascinating thanks to its harmonies and various experimental piano techniques which were unknown in Debussy’s time: scratching and pinching the strings, using glass cups and paper inside the instrument; asking the performer to sing, whistle, and whisper. The two collections, both influenced by Chopin, complement and answer one another perfectly. Let’s hope that this beautiful album from Martin Klett will soon be joined by the two composers’ respective Second Books… – François Hudry
