A much-admired contemporary, living composer whose popularity among a wide cross-section of music devotees and casual listeners transcends genre barriers. This new double-disc set of the complete piano music encompasses works composed over a 50 year span. Jeroen Van Veen is a preeminent and critically-favored Minimalist advocate and multi-dimensional artist with a noteworthy backlist of Brilliant Classic releases to his credit with more to come. Booklet notes written by Jeroen Van Veen.

The somber, spiritual music of the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, who rebelled against Soviet strictures, often incorporates tintinnabuli, the signature technique he developed inspired by the Latin word for bells. "Für Alina," the disc's enigmatic opening work - tenderly rendered by the pianist Jeroen Van Veen - showcases that technique. The second disc features earlier works of a very different aesthetic, including two neo-Classical sonatinas and a partita that evokes Shostakovich.
