||jy is nog mooi vir my
||A deeply touching piece with florid lines in the piano part
with cello weaving into the harmonies with its own lyrical intimacy.
This can be interpreted as a full-blooded expression of love in
all its passionate pulsations! The main melody will linger in
the heart's mind long after the music has stopped. Waves of feeling
takes over the music and pulls you with. No stopping!
||You find yourself in the midst of a talking crowd. You try to
find meaning in all the fragmentary conversations, but do not
succeed. Your attention is drawn by the piano sounds from a darkly-lit
corner on the other side of the room. It draws you like a moth
to a flame. It's so much easier to follow the gentle inflections
of the piano. You can dream, be silent and just listen.
||piano simple walk
||A gentle waltzy walk between cello and piano. At times sweet
and sentimental and then again full of dancing life. Almost gives
way to schmaltziness; strongly reined in by the piano's strong

||when i saw you for the first time 1
||A poignant expression maybe of love, maybe of longing, maybe
of loss, maybe of regret. Gentle, fluid cello playing over a simple,
beautiful piano cantabile.
||when i saw you for the first time 2
||A moving flow of cello and piano lines intertwining delicately.
Moments of "bitter-sweet", almost atonal moments. But never losing
the inherent beauty of the overall sound of human emotion.
||a simple motive leads the cello on, stays drifting but with
||an angry dialogue between two simple motives come and go in
this driving, disharmonious bravura piece
||Music for a Harlequinade. The repetitive accompaniment has a
msichievous lilt to it - gives a playful circus-feel to the music.
||when i saw you for the first time 3
||A "stronger" expression than the previous 2 in the "when i saw
you for the first time"-cycle. Louder and fuller playing from
both the cello and piano. The irregular metre of the music lends
it a quaint off-balance feel - maybe a slight drunken feel of
||From the soundtrack for a contemporary one-woman dance piece
"The day I got my body back". The passion that infuses the phrases
is stirring to the inner-most fibre of the body. Thus the spirit
and the body eventually reconnects and form a harmonious whole.
||A minimalistc piece - quiet movement in all 3 featuring instruments.
A slow gracious dance for an ascete. From soundtrack for Acty
Tang's solo debut
||The sustained accompaniment gives this piece a sense of restfulness.
A delicate melody doubled by itself in thirds is of an ethereal
kind. Toward the middle, the piece builds to a climax from where
the harmonies are fuller and more resonantly employed. The piece
ends in the quiet state it had begun in.
||song before sleep
||simple chords with an african ring drift along the piano. almost
a-rhythmical, it puts one to rest like a soft breeze.
||A jazzy up-beat tango reaching heights of passion so true to
the character of this dance.
||A gentle expression of peace and beauty at the fall of night
and the settling down of worked-up heart-beats. Simply blissful...
||A piano piece that engulfs a whole range of emotions. The piece
starts with a lone-standing melody, which is later joined by hesitant
chords. Halfway through, the music becomes a sweeping, indulging
statement of all that is passionate and beautiful. (FROM first
ever recording "Ek Praat Klavier)
