The album Liebestod from Polish composer Stefan Wesolowski consists of repetitive compositions written for piano, brass instruments, strings and electronics. Featuring a cameo by Michael Jacaszek.
The title itself is derived from Wagner's "Tristan and Isolde" which says a lot about Wesolowski's primary inspirations. Liebestod shows a tremendous amount of respect for classical music but Wesolowski is far from making literal references to it. Wesolowski shows his own unique musical language; rough and radical at some points, yet full of intense nostalgia and beauty.
