One of the 20th century's most sublime pieces of music for piano, The Book of Sounds by German composer Hans Otte (1926-2007), is available again on 2LP vinyl via Beacon Sound. Licensed from Kuckuck, this edition is limited to 500 copies and will include a 12-page full-color booklet with contemporary liner note contributions by Terry Riley, Dustin O'Halloran, and Otte’s biographer Ingo Ahmels, as well as a 1982 Village Voice live review and photos courtesy of Silvia Otte.

Remastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri at Black Knoll.

“A key work of 20th century piano music” - Universal Edition Vienna

“"This work, a masterpiece of restraint, reflects the musical imagination of someone who has spent long periods in the quiet recesses of the mind." - Terry Riley

"Its hard to put into words exactly what his work brings to me, but there is a sense of meditative peace mixed with a deep questioning of the world. I find it transcendental, music that does not weave a human story, but a deep internal view and simultaneously vast as the cosmos." - Dustin O'Halloran
