“As well as being a superb technician,” wrote The Guardian, “Herbert Henck always puts together his discs with great thoughtfulness.” “Locations” gives the most complete indication of Henck’s musical range yet.
He is heard, once again, as an insightful interpreter of modern music, and also as a most convincing improviser. Disc One is devoted to an impeccable account of John Cage’s seminally important “Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano”. Disc Two features two groups of improvised “fantasies”, each of them taped as “freestyle extensions” of Henck’s interpretative work.
