Kaikhosru Sorabji

August 14, 1892 - October 15, 1988
born in Chingford, England, composed during the Modern period
Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji (1892-1988) created some of the most technically difficult piano works of the 20th century, which in part accounts for the obscurity of much of his music. In such elaborate pieces as Le jardin parfumé, the Concerto per suonare da me solo, and the four-hour-long Opus Clavicembalisticum, Sorabji wrote counterpoint and harmonies that were spread out over multiple staves, and only the most virtuosic pianists have been able to successfully play them. Sorabji spent many years as a music critic, though he retired in 1945 and focused on composition until his death at age 96. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

Comments

Thanks, James.
There are CDs of some of the works named in the bio, including that monumental Opus 30, 'Opus Clavicembali s t i c u m ' . He did also leave a massive organ work behind as well as all the piano material, rarely recorded but there are some available. Much did not get recorded until very recently, as Sorabji was reticent about allowing recordings of his works, and so many did not get recorded until beginning in the late 1970s.
