Sketches of Seasons is a new take on the familiar 4 seasons theme by pianist Atzko Kohashi and percussionist Eddy Koopman. Improvisations driven from the moment and emotion. The direct ambient-like recording technique used in the RAR series from Sound Liaison ensures that the listener is completely absorbed in the recordings.
The musical realization of the seasons is magically portrayed. As if being in a beautiful dream. The palette ranges from the renewing, burgeoning of spring, the glorious of summer, the melancholy of autumn to the cozy embracing of winter.
