“Hiding (Reworks)” is a unique collection of recompositions highlighting the talents of several exciting musicians, centering around a track that pianist and composer Garreth Broke wrote for solo piano called “Hiding”.
“Hiding” was first released as part of a collaboration with artist Anna Salzmann titled “Healing”, which explored the healing process in all its complexities. Whenever Garreth returned to the piece or played it in concerts, he kept having new ideas for it, as if the piece itself were telling him that it wanted to grow. This prompted him to invite a group of musicians whose work he admires to create a series of reworks of this composition, encouraging them to be as adventurous as they liked — a task that they really embraced, leading to some mesmerising results.
“Hiding (Reworks)” is released on March 3rd 2023 via Piano and Coffee.
