Pianist Sang-Hie Lee performs original works written for two pianos, by internationally recognized composers Gerald Chenoweth, Eun Hye Park, Lewis Nielson, Daniel Perlongo, and Paul Reller, in ARS NOSTRA: ABER JETZT DIE NACHT. Along with collaborating pianist Martha Thomas, the pieces showcase the instrument as a "super piano", unveiling textures and new combinations of sounds not accessible with a soloist. The title track, Aber Jetzt Die Nacht by Lewis Nielson, begins by contrasting a distinct motive against outbursts of relatively abstract, dissonant music. About halfway through, the work reveals its true structural goal of exploring the extremes of a piano's color. This new direction is signaled by two glissandi, initiating the appearance of many more dramatic and unusual piano sounds, including knocking of the instrument's case and playing touch harmonics inside the piano. Sonata For Two Pianos by Paul Reller, contains four major sections shaped by continuous notes moving from different rhythms, from rock and roll to jazz, flowing fast-slowest-fastest-slow, which can be seen as a microcosm of a classical four-movement sonata. Influences of Ives and McDowell blend with classic balance and symmetry, creating leaps and chaotic dissonances alongside moments of exotic harmonies and calmer melodies.
