About the album

Adam Golka has created a fascinating programme focused around evening time, with the main work being the Piano Sonata No. 1 in f sharp minor. Its turbulence, languor, volatility, and repetitive ruthlessness are just some of the qualities that make it dangerously irresistible. The tender Aria movement is an echo (almost bar-by-bar) of the opening track An Anna II – itself an enigma, and why Adam begins the album with this beautiful song. The Finale is a mysterious labyrinth of extreme emotions. Its emotional narrative undoubtedly takes place in the shadows of night. Des Abends (Upon Evening) is great compliment to Der Schwere Abend (The Heavy Evening) as a dramatic contrast to the other two evening pieces, since the brooding nature of this song creates an interesting triptych when placed between the serenity of the two piano pieces.
