The WholeNote reviews THE TRANSCENDENTALIST
Canadian music magazine The WholeNote has reviewed THE TRANSCENDENTALIST by Ivan Ilić.
Reviewer Janos Gardonyi says on page 80:
“It’s a masterstroke to devise a program with the likes of Cage, Feldman or Wollschleger by tracing them backwards to “fall on branches descending from Frédéric Chopin”.
“…a remarkable journey… ”
“Transcendental meditation? The phrase here takes on a new meaning under the magic hands of Ilic who is guaranteed to hypnotize you like no other into the mysteries of another universe, but at the same time plays Scriabin’s gorgeous D-flat Prelude Opus 31 no 3 so beautifully that you can perhaps endure the vicissitudes of this here universe.”
