A Secret Preview

Winterstein is the name of a mountain in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, located in the far east of Germany. A landscape, pristine and deep. The river Elbe and numerous other rivers and creeks that have carved their way into the rocky mountains over thousands of years.

This place is the plot of Daniel O'Rhys' new suite. The german pianist thinks of his music in suites. Each of these suites is about a special place.

"The music makes a solid connection. With the place, the people, the stories and the journey itself. The music would not have been created without these things. They are special moments at special points on this earth captured in music. They are not purely musical descriptions of a landscape. The individual pieces are more like drawings in a very personal diary."

Daniel O’Rhys piano pieces are miniatures of a calm world, fragile and beautiful. Music that seems to be written for nature. And "The Winterstein Suite" also lives from this core: fragile and yet perfectly balanced piano pieces. Wonderfully warm and closely captured. Precisely arranged and introvertedly played snapshots, pieces that flow like a calm river in the landscape.
