Eight remarkable and talented young pianists, from six different countries around the world came to further their musical studies at the Conservatory of Music and Académie Supérieure de Musique (HEAR) in Strasbourg, France. During the COVID-19 years, they took on together the challenge of learning the marvelous but highly demanding piano works of the great French composer Hugues Dufourt, who coined the term "Spectral Music" in the 1970's.
The young pianists had the honour of working with Hugues Dufourt himself. Here the complete piano solo works of Hugues Dufourt are presented for the first time. The CDs were recorded in the presence of Mr. Dufourt and under his guidance.
