After “Ich und Du” (I and you) for two oboes, “ich und ich” (I and I) for solo piano constitutes the second instalment in a cycle-in-progress, one concerned with specific questions of identity. “ich und ich” is about the piano sound, a trial mediation between expression-laden material and what arises from music itself.
