Product Description

A tiento is a form of keyboard music that originated in Spain in the mid-15th century. Thomas Köner‘s first encounter with this musical genre goes back to a commission from Frankfurter Gesellschaft für Neue Musik, for which he chose to do an interpretation of Antonio Cabezon’s “Tiento del primer tono” (1570). He rearranged and performed the work with gongs, piano, and live electronics in 2012.

Tiento de la Luz is Köner‘s second tiento, succeeds Tiento de las Nieves (2014) and precedes the upcoming Tiento de la Oscuridad. While Tiento de las Nieves is a work for solo performer and live electronics, the instrumentation of Tiento de la Luz is expanded: in addition to Köner‘s distinct live electronics, there are two piano parts, percussion, and viola da gamba.
