Ballades is a collection of four piano pieces composed by Doug Thomas between 2015 and 2017, wonderfully performed by Marta Cascales, Manos Milonakis, Muriël Bostdorp and Marek Votruba.
The four pieces in Ballades are an amalgam of minimalism, romanticism, and the fresh compositional style Doug Thomas has developed during these years, which has been perfectly understood by the four performers and brought to life by piano and coffee records.
The EP releases today, November 17, on limited edition vinyl-effect CD, and is the perfect example of what can be achieved through well-planned collaboration, no matter the barriers.
