“The second work was another Messiaen-inspired piece for solo piano, 2015’s 88 (No. 1), for which Greenwood released sheet music last year. The work requires the pianist (in this case, Lisa Moore) to put on fingerless gloves halfway through the performance—a tribute to legendary pianist Glenn Gould as well as to protect the pianist’s hands during “some painful hammering” on the keys, Greenwood explains in his statement. “But don’t let that fool you into thinking the music is dark or angry: It is — or is meant to be — joyful,” he continued.”
