The present album is made up of twelve piano miniatures interpreted by the pianist Grzegorz Rudny. The album is a continuation of the 2015 album About Love, works for piano (RecArt 0017). The music is illustrative and atmospheric and contains a huge dose of beautiful melodies. Even though Lukasz Pohl’s composition style is that of consequent minimalism, this album can be surprising. This is what the composer writes about his music: “In the thematic sense Stories is a tale about the multidimensional world of human emotions, which attempts to emphasize their most possible elemental meaning in the human life. The album is then a study reaching for matters which are invariable for every one of us. Thus, as a consequence, it is a subjectively assembled, but universally directed, code of cognition and recognition of a human being in their primary, extremely essential dimension […]. In a musical sense Stories is a set of twelve, minimalistically designed piano miniatures, where the dominant role is played by thematic work formed by the interweaving of the element of motif wandering with the thematically and philosophically justified factor of repetition realized against the backdrop of audible harmony. As Schopenhauer wrote: “How rich in content and full of significance the language of music is, we see from the repetitions, as well as the da capo, the like of which would be unbearable in works composed in a language of words, but in music are very appropriate and beneficial, for, in order to comprehend it fully, we must hear it twice”.” Lukasz Pohl (b. 1976) – a self-taught composer, musician, a double bass player, guitarist and composer in the Metal Notes project, and on top of that – a law professor. His philosophy as a composer is close to the premises of musical minimalism.
