Snowdrift, for piano. 2. O, schöner Mai, for piano (from Strauss-Walzer). 3. Poor Stuff, for piano. 4. Free Setting, for piano. 5. Verdi Transcription No. 10 ("Me pellegrina ed orfana"), for piano.

FINNISSY’s virtuoso piano music ranges from the album-leaf to the six-hour marathon that is The History of Photography in Sound, and unites folk music, opera paraphrase, political protest, intellectual speculation and high-modernist pyrotechnics. What it demands is phenomenal accuracy and musicianship from the player, without which its subtle proliferation of notes becomes a drab pile. Hodges makes every note sparkle. His rare touch is felt in the icicle-tinkle of Snowdrift (1972)

I'm listening to Michael Finnissy's piano music. And my ears and my brain don't know where to start. In particular, I'm listening to Nicolas Hodges' recording of Etched Bright with Sunlight, the final chapter of Finnissy's massive cycle for solo piano, The History of Photography in Sound. The effect it makes is a coruscating brilliance, a dazzle of texture and shimmer that's an aural analogy of the intensity and pain-pleasure of looking directly into the sun.
