Petr Bakla belongs to generation of composers whose output no longer seems bound to the imperative of the "search for sounds" extended technique. Instead, he builds his music on the unmarked instrumental sound, which he uses to create a flow of interacting layers and explore the means of pure pitch, time and sound volume to the expressive extreme. His first ever solo release presents him at his best - two orchestral pieces as a definite manifesto of monumental monochromatic environments, both in Bakla's favorite diptych form. Personnel: Roland Kluttig - conducting, Daan Vandewalle - piano and Ostravska Banda - orchestra on "Piano Concerto"; Rolf Gupta - conducting and Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra - orchestra on "Classical Blend/Weinachtsoratorium".
