Marie-Laure: Instant Composition
Inspired by Anthony Doerr's All the Light We Cannot See, the 2015 Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction, William Goldstein sat down at the piano after reading this wonderful novel, and out came this theme based on the heroine of the book, Marie-Laure. A piece that comes out as a whole is regarded as a gift. Mr. Goldstein shares the gift with you all. It is the first track on his new album, INSTANT COMPOSITION, released on January 5, 2016. It is the seventh album of improvised compositions that Mr. Goldstein has released. Several of these improvised compositions are published by Edition Peters, and reside side-by-side with Mr. Goldstein's conventionally composed compositions.
The last picture in the video is William Goldstein with the young Belgian actress Pili Groyne, who won the best actress award at the 2015 Catalonian International Film Festival, for her starring role in The Brand-New Testament, the Belgian entry into the 2015 Oscar race. She also appeared in Two Days, One Night.
