Brian Ferneyhough born in Coventry in 1943 and recipient of the prestigious Siemens Prize in 2007 counts among the great musical challengers of our time. As an unyielding proponent of a steady refinement of musical perception, he doesn't shy away from mind-boggling structural aggregations and extreme technical and artistic demands on his musicians. In doing so he enjoys the support of a handpicked group of virtuosos, who regularly perform his compositions all over the world. One of the most prominent among those is pianist Nicolas Hodges, who, together with his colleague and friend Rolf Hind, presents, for the first time, Ferneyhough's complete works for piano. Between 1965 and 2013, seven works for piano solo or piano duo emerged from the composer's studio, all of them destined to captivate the listener's attention with complex musical adventures and regularly putting him into incredulous amazement.
