‘Through the Mysterious Barricades’ features two piano improvisations recorded in the late 80s and early 90s in Holland. “Through the Mysterious Barricade” is a series of improvisations at the piano which occupied me during a number of years. It is based on a famous composition by the French Baroque composer François Couperin, which is quoted, as a kind of jewel set in the spontaneity of sometimes longish playings. These two, from June 16, 1989 and May 14, 1992 are numbers 17 and 144 of the series, played at the home of my brother in Holland and dedicated to him, who is not well.” – Philip Corner
