88 Sternbilder für die  88 Tasten des Klaviers - 88 constellations for the 88 keys of the piano
"This double CD recording which comes with a pocket score is presented in an attractive box. The 88 constellations for the 88 keys of the piano were conceived to be based on the range from A2 to c5 but in the end my cycle Book Of Stars wound up to have just 72 parts. Originally, I had thought of 88 different pieces, and my notes referred to this concept throughout; however, only in the final stages of actually writing the music did I decide on the details. The Greek philosopher and astronomer Eudoxos compiled a catalogue of the 48 constellations known at his time which is still valid today. Some of these constellations, i.e. Cassopeia, Andromeda, Cepheus, Perseus and Cetus or Argo, Vela, Puppis, Carina as well as Columba, tell a coherent story which allowed me to combine them into one piece although they remain based on their respective fundamental notes. The first piece, the ouverture to my miniature operas without vocals, combines 11 constellations as observed by Nicolas Louis de Lacaille on Table Mountain: Mensa, Caelum, Circinus, Fornax, Microscopium, Norma, Octans, Pyxis, Reticulum, Telescopium and Antlia. These 11 constellations are connected through an 'ascending astral melody' from A2 to c5; in the score, their motifs are marked at their first respective appearance. I fell in love with two seemingly insignificant constellations: Columba and Lyra. And so it was that I composed these twice, from different angles. As Lepus Et Corvus and Phiuchus Et Serpens were combined, one winds up with exactly 72 pieces." Wilfried Hiller
