The connection between Wales and the harp is a long-standing one, and Mathias's part in it began 12 years before his Harp Concerto was written, with Improvisations for harp solo; even a Welshman has to learn how to cope with such an idiosyncratic instrument. He learned his lessons well—even using semitone pedal glissandos in the second movement, and he keeps the harp audible by alternating its solo passages with orchestral ones or, when the two are working together treating the orchestra with a light touch (the celesta is used as a particularly effective companion to the harp), at other times resorting to the more familiar across-the-strings sweep. Two movements have declared Welsh associations: the first juxtaposes but does not develop three themes the second is a 'bardic' elegy; the last is simply ''joyful and rhythmic''. The whole makes pleasing listening appealing to the emotions and imagination rather than the intellect.

Mathias Eick's resumé includes work with musicians of many styles, from Chick Corea and the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra to Norwegian psychedelic rock band Motorpsycho. A primary project in the last ten years has been the jazz/progressive rock ten-piece band Jaga Jazzist: Eick's multi-instrumentalism has been an important part of that group's sound and on The Door he is also heard on vibraphone and guitar as well as trumpet, as he puts it, whatever needs to be played. Eick has appeared on two ECM recordings with Norwegian-American guitarist Jacob Young, Evening Falls and Sideways, and on Finnish harpist/pianist/composer Iro Haarla's Northbound. In 2007 he became a frontline soloist of Manu Katché's band, appearing on the best-selling Playground…

The thirteen Whereas songs are my creative response to a gift of unpublished, beautiful, personal poems. The poetic themes include the joy of unity, the sorrow of separation, the desire to know and be known, the bliss of loving and being loved. Many of the stanzas begin “Whereas, . . .” The songs’ titles are drawn from these poems. The poems were written for me; I wrote this music for you. Thank you for listening! May this music resonate in you and bless your heart, mind, spirit, and life.

Grayfolded is a two-CD album produced by John Oswald featuring the Grateful Dead song "Dark Star". Using over a hundred different performances of the song, recorded live between 1968 and 1993, Oswald, using a process he calls "plunderphonics", built, layered, and "folded" all of them to produce two large, recomposed versions, each about one hour long. The first disc of Grayfolded, titled Transitive Axis, was released in 1994, and the second disc, Mirror Ashes, was released in 1995, both on the Swell/Artifacts label.

Portuguese virtuoso Artur Pizarro makes a welcome return with works by two brilliant pianist-composers. The Brazilian Henrique Oswald and the Portuguese Alfredo Napoleão were born in the same year, less than three months apart. Both were child prodigies who became concert pianists, pedagogues and composers. Oswald's Piano Concerto dates from about 1886. Although influences of Faure can be detected, its overall character owes more to the late Romantic German style. Napoleao's Piano Concerto No.2 is undated but was probably composed around the same time as Oswald's. Pizarro is only the third pianist to champion this spectacular work.

Released on ad21music on the date of the label's 10th anniversary, this release sees Argentinean Bruno Sanfilippo in collaboration with the prolific German drone and overtone musician Mathias Grassow. Beautiful, soft, elegant piano melodies and subtle, enveloping drones. "Ambessence Piano & Drones" sets a new level of blissful dreaminess. Hazy, gossamer breathing strains with the lightest of touches hang weightless, shapeless as if the very air itself has been transformed into to music. Sometimes the underlying sonic textures are so transparent they might simply be environmental recordings, a thickening of emptiness…

Electronic legends and like-minded drone masters Alio Die (born Stefano Musso) and Mathias Grassow conspired to create one of 2003's finest ambient releases. Expanding Horizons, a double-CD set, features deep drones, smooth samples, gentle rhythms, and subtle melodies. Die recorded his basic tracks in '99. Grassow added his touches and arranged and mixed the final master in '01 and '02. Klaus Wiese (singing bowls, zither, Indian strings) and Carsten Agthe (percussion) added their expertise as well. So, these discs feature three of the greatest drone artists ever - Grassow, Die and Wiese…
