★★★★½  TRACES AND TRANSFORMATIONS @ Australian Festival of Chamber Music

★★★★½ TRACES AND TRANSFORMATIONS @ Australian Festival of Chamber Music

“Performed by Kathryn Stott and Timo-Veikko Valve, it consisted of groovy, upbeat rhythms, unconventional chords and, occasionally, completely lunatic key changes. D’Netto is a young genius working ‘at the peak of his talents’ as Christopher Lawrence put it. The two-movement work heavily relied on its placement of accents, and explored combinations of possible textures available in both instruments from plucking with running piano arpeggios to syncopated chords and motor rhythms with harmonics. This work of power and imagination was made even more exciting by Valve and Stott’s incredibly clean and focussed execution.”
