Performed by Aki Takahashi, piano; 2005 recordings. "Giacinto Scelsi (1905-1988) wrote one of the largest sets of piano music in the 20th century. Scelsi was a virtuoso pianist, and even his most experimental compositions in this genre show a marked pianistic conception. Largely ignored during much of his life, Scelsi was basically only 'discovered' in the 1980s. Though a recluse in his later years, there were some artists who worked with Scelsi and gained special insight into the spirit of his compositions. Renowned contemporary music pianist Aki Takahashi was one of these musicians. The program Ms. Takahashi has selected for this recital is largely made up of works which she prepared with the composer. It includes one of Scelsi's greatest piano pieces, the Quattro Illustrazioni -- a tour-de-force of exotic, erotic illustrations depicting the different incarnations of Vishnu. Also available on surround-sound DVD."
