Michael Wollny - Mondenkind [CD]
Catalogue No.: ACT97652
Release Date: 9th October 2020
Michael Wollny has made more than a dozen albums as leader during his 15 years as a recording artist but has left it until now to make his first ‘classic’ solo piano album. His innate curiosity, the desire to interact with other
musicians, the temptation to discover new and original music together with others have normally proved far too great. After all, solo piano, whether on stage or in a studio, appears - at least on the surface - to be a lonely undertaking. However, in early 2020 the time seemed right for Wollny to
start to delve into the endless fund of music, stories, thoughts, moods, images and encounters that he has been accumulating over the years.
When it happened, the act of making the solo recording in April 2020 fell in the middle of a worldwide lockdown. The time, then, to retreat into oneself, a moment when the world has suddenly become smaller and quieter, lost its
regular pulse, when the normal and constant flood of stimuli has been cut off and in which many people find that their gaze starts to turn inward
