Kind of Beethoven is the second Stereo and 5 Channel Surround Sound DSD release on the Just Listen label at NativeDSD.
As a pianist who is extremely well versed in two distinct musical vocabularies – Jazz and Classical Xavi Torres explores new ways of bringing these worlds together in his very own interpretations of Beethoven’s piano sonatas. With deep respect for these key works of the classical repertoire, Torres honors the compositions while finding freedom within their structures.
In a subtle interplay with bass clarinet player Joris Roelofs and drummer Joan Terol, Torres explores patterns and textures within the pieces, avoiding the standard jazz approach and instead making us listen to the sonatas in a new way, lifting out passages and details, bringing his own perspective and authorship to the timeless compositions.
