  • "Man With No Shadow" by Makoto Tojiki (2009)
Browsing at MDT, I stumbled across what looks like an amazing series of live recordings on Danacord--at least 16 volumes that I can determine--of pianists at the Husum Festival in Germany.  Danacord has been recording music from this festival since 1989, releasing a CD from the festival every year.  Here is a review of some of them on MusicWeb.  Has anyone heard any of them? 

And here are the contents of Vol. 1 (cover below) on MDT.  Frankly, given the pianists and the repertoire, this looks like a "just buy all of them" proposition, but just curious if anyone has heard any and can recommend individual releases.

Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire.

I have volume 10 and can very much recommend it. Deliciously obscure repertoire for the most part and no-routine performances.
