Description: The latest avant-garde piano disc from this source is titled "For Children" and you might think, "yeah, right". And you'd be right. A couple of Gubaidulina's Musical Toys might interest and hold the attention of children - certainly nothing in Lachenmann's Child's Play. This is another fine collection of 20th century avant-garde piano music tied together by the (often extreme) brevity of the pieces included. Steffen Schleiermacher (piano).
