Moritz Eggert about „Hämmerklavier XXV. Abweichung (Hommage à Beethoven)“

“Hämmerklavier is a continuous cycle for solo piano that I started in 1994 and which has since grown to 22 pieces, filling 3 complete solo recitals if all were played in succession. The title does not refer to the „Hammerklavier“ type of fortepiano or even to the „Hammerklavier-Sonata“ by Beethoven (though of course the latter would not be an entirely unwanted homage), but rather to a peculiar attitude of the interpreter towards the performance. The piano is not just an instrument here – it is a counterpart; the pianist does not simply press the keys, he is also a „performer“ in the larger sense. The pieces all demand a high degree of virtuosity and intensity. It is practically impossible for the performer to approach the pieces in a neutral fashion. “Abweichung (hommage á Beethoven)” is like an aesthetic homage to Beethoven. If anything runs like a thread through most of Beethoven’s works, then that’s the freedom of individualism, which is most vulnerable in our time. The deviations of this particular piece are almost not noticeable but they rebel against a strict order.“
