Through this new album, Krier goes in another direction than her two previous ones programmatic approach, where she juxtaposed Rameau and Ligeti and Liszt vs. Berg/Schoenberg. The current release now takes the opposite path. At first glance, Debussy - the inventor of musical Impressionism - and Szymanowski - often called the ‘Polish Impressionist’ seem to have much in common. Both composers even use the same title in French: Masques (masks). Cathy Krier affirms, nevertheless, that she is much more interested in the differences one can observe between these two works written roughly the same period.
