Worldwide: Apr 16, 2010


It could be argued that Dustin O'Halloran epitomises the new generation of 'classical' and classically-inspired musician/composers of recent years. Favouring heart-wrenching melodies and floating structures over atonal experimentation and avant-garde deconstruction, O'Halloran's music exists to blow the cobwebs from your seldom-touched heart-strings and pull on them with a gentle force that many contemporary composers have long forgotten. read more...

Dustin O'Halloran. Vorleben

Sonic Pieces - SP007LIMITED

It could be argued that Dustin O'Halloran epitomises the new generation of 'classical' and classically-inspired musician/composers of recent years. Favouring heart-wrenching melodies and floating structures over atonal experimentation and avant-garde deconstruction, O'Halloran's music exists to blow the cobwebs from your seldom-touched heart-strings and pull on them with a gentle force that many contemporary composers have long forgotten. 'Vorleben' was recorded in the Grunewald Church in Berlin - one of Dustin's only concerts in the city since moving there in 2008. As well as fantastic acoustics and a beautiful setting, the Grunewald church has a piano with a distinct character. Although this is a live recording, you won't hear any audience noise here. Rather than disrupt the tracks with the clattering of applause, each track appears as if from nowhere before gently dissolving into the next. In this sense, 'Vorleben' almost feels like a compilation of the greatest sections from O'Halloran's Piano Solos Volume 1 (2004) and Volume 2 (2006), both released on the English Bella Union label.
