'... excellently performed and produced.'

Contemplation of Life - Tomáš Klement, piano. © 2014 Eito Music

The new album from Czech concert pianist and chamber musician Tomáš Klement features the works of Klement Slavický (1910-1999), Maurice Ravel, and Ludwig van Beethoven. Naturally the centre of greatest interest is Klement's inclusion of the rarely heard Klement Slavický sonata Contemplation of Life (1957-58).

Prague critics greeted it enthusiastically: 'Sensitive and colourful ... [with] charming clarity, lightness and radiance' — Harmonie Magazine...
