THE NEW ALBUM
NOW AVAILABLE FOR STREAMING
Moonwalk - Fluid and rapid dance movement which, in going backwards, generates the propulsive force to leap forward, airborne - the lunar dream of a body freed of earthly gravity.
A NovAntiqua Records production, MOONWALK features sonatas by Brahms and Saint-Saëns and miniatures by Debussy, Busoni and Reger.
Tommaso's first recording project with his father, pianist Alexander Lonquich, captured by the Grammy-winning wizardry of Peter Laenger.
"The question of musical inheritance, of how to conjugate the past into the future (...) Music then appears to us as a kind of moonwalk, a 'progressing backwards' or 'backing ahead': a magical enchantment that bends gravity and time, forging what is yet to be born by engaging with the human experiences of ages past. It is this same 'moonwalking' magic that allows us, the listeners and interpreters of today, to kindle a vibrant and intimate dialogue with the voices of musicians long gone".
"A prize-winning performance.”
The Evening Standard - London
"A performance full of crisp rhythmic interactions
and broad, eloquent melodic phrasing"
The San Francisco Chronicle
"Mr. Lonquich's virtuosity dazzled,
and the crowd's reaction
was a vociferous standing ovation,
A feeling of sheer joy filled the hall."
Oberon's Grove - New York
