New Music: Klangriket – ‘For they who had to go I’


I don’t know about you, but I adore when you can hear the air around the instrument in a recording. In an era of clinical perfection, these small humanities and vulnerabilities go much further than ever before. Swedish neo-classical pianist Klangriket deals in such spaces. As he taps his way through his latest track ‘For they who had to go I’ one can hear the creak of the pedals and I swear you can hear him shift in his seat. This amplifies the intimacy and delicacy of the track tenfold. The listener feels like they are seated right in the company of Klangriket as he plays. Rather than in another time and place and existence altogether. Magical.
