Contemporary music oscillating between free jazz, improvised music, Morton Feldman, Luigi Nono and a far from sterile creative personality - such are the components of Dietrich Eichmann's music. He belongs to those composers in whom undogmatic artistic freedom combines with an ongoing claim to avant-garde, constantly undermining common perceptions of new music.

This CD follows Dietrich Eichmann's creative path through the nineties. It spans from the rhythmically terse piece for four pianos, which draws upon influences of Jazz and Heavy Metal, right up to the gently floating piece for flute and piano which utilises experience with improvised music. Not exactly music serving the self-proclaimed avant-garde elite. Rather more music with a humanistic and personal touch that perceives itself as an independent continuation of revolutionary starting-points set in the fifties and sixties. Eichmann proves to be a composer who has taken a personal route to create emotionally and intellectually committed music that stands outside the modern mainstream and therefore always has the scope for surprise. His music breathes and brings into being new sound worlds, it develops modernism and is deeply personal. With its extremely associative qualities it succeeds in addressing the unruly reality of everyday life just as much as existential loneliness. In other words: music for our times.
