about

Henry Wong Doe follows his widely acclaimed Landscape Preludes (2014) with a vibrant account of the Mussorgsky classic, Pictures at an Exhibition, brilliantly paired with new works from New Zealand composer, Eve de Castro-Robinson.

Showing the courage of his convictions, Henry tackles Mussorgsky's difficult work for solo piano in grand style. Rich and resonate, full of verve and passion, the set is beautifully balanced by Eve's suite of miniatures, an inspired choice that makes this recording one of Rattle's 'must-have' new releases.

Inspired by works from the Wallace Art Collection, Eve’s pieces offer a contemporary counterpoint to the muscularity and sweep of the Mussorgsky classic. The ten-piece suite is titled A Zigzagged Gaze, and for the booklet Eve offers brief comments about her reaction to each of the works and an accompanying haiku.

She says, “To be let loose among the art collection of the Wallace Arts Trust was a gleeful trawling through riches. I pared back my long list of favourites to arrive at ten works that spoke to me with singular, wildly differing voices.”

“Recording Pictures at an Exhibition has been one of my long-cherished ambitions, but to have the opportunity of performing and recording new works composed especially for the project by one of my favourite composers is a dream come true. To produce the project in New Zealand with such great people, and to release it on Rattle is fantastic. I couldn’t be happier.” — Henry Wong Doe
