Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji (1892-1988) wrote 61 works for solo piano, of which only nine were published before the middle of the 1930s. The last of these publications was the Opus Clavicembalisticum, a work of unprecedented complexity and it is considered one of the longest and most complicated pieces ever written for solo piano. It shows the composers desire to push the boundaries of what is possible in piano music and remains a fascinating and challenging work within the realm of 20th-century classical music.
The pianist Daan Vandewalle is an internationally acclaimed performer of 20th and 21st century piano works who has been teaching piano at the Ghent Conservatory since 2001. He is one of the few pianists in the world to have mastered the entire Opus Clavicembalisticum by Sorabji, which he performs in this recording in over 5 hours on 5 CDs
