Tom Johnson

How does visual symmetry relate to musical symmetry? In 1980 composer Tom Johnson, known for his playful minimalist structures, produced 49 perfectly symmetrical drawings made out of musical symbols. These he then turned into a set of charming crystalline 4-hand piano pieces, each a tiny, perfect musical world. In this first recording, duo Oei and Vriezen bring these Symmetries alive with zest, clarity and a fine sense of color. The notes include the original drawings.
