roedelius - Plays Piano (Bloomsbury Theatre, London, July 28th 1985)

We all know that Cluster man Hans Joachim Roedelius is pretty nifty on the old ivories, but 'Plays Piano' is really something special to behold. Recorded in 1985 at an exclusive concert at London's Bloomsbury Theatre, 'Plays Piano' was a reaction to the grand pianos he came across while staying with his good friend Brian Eno. He organized a series of concerts to introduce listeners to this musical direction and this recording documents it perfectly. Apparently Roedelius was stunned by the quality of the Steinway grand piano at the venue, and this absolutely informed the music that emerged. In attendance were Brian Eno and The Edge (among many other esteemed guests I'm sure), and there is a feeling of almost religious transcendence in these pieces. It's hardly surprising that by the end of the show people were apparently kneeling down in front of the musician in gratitude! This is the first time this music has been released, and it feels like a gift to dedicated Roedelius fans and solo piano aficionados alike.
