'De la nuit' brings together three works performed by the Hungarian pianist Dénes Várjon, his second solo album for ECM New Series (following 'Precipitando', a recital of Berg, Janacek and Liszt).

"Negotiating dynamic shifts of emphasis," The Independent has noted, "Dénes Várjon displays that most valuable of gifts: the ability to play in a way which makes you listen anew to the familiar." This capacity is to the fore in the pianist's sensitive exploration of Schumann's Fantasiestücke, Ravel's Gaspard de la nuit and Bartók's Im Freien a journey through three worlds of poetic imagination.

As Jürg Stenzl writes in the liner notes. "All three works were bold forays into fundamentally new music that far transcended the limits of their time. They require pianists for whom transcendent virtuosity is second nature." The album was recorded at Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI, Lugano in April 2016, and produced by Manfred Eicher.
