Frederic Rzewski has long been a proponent of musical allegory and exhortation, and these two works are no exception. Also, no other American pianist has been so informed by popular and folk songs to the degree he has, yet also so rooted in what can be known as "classical music. Indeed, if Stephen Foster had been a pianist as well as a songwriter at the end of the 20th century, he may have indeed been Rzewski. The first work here, the "Sonata for Piano, 1991," is a case in thematic condensation

De profundis' is a kind of part song with piano accompaniment. It is based on a poem by Marnix Niemeijer from his collection of poems 'Opname van opzij' (2017). The first performance was on Saturday 1 December 2018 at the opening of the exhibition 'Mensenkind' in Huis Kernhem (Ede) with drawings by Marcel Verbrugge, also based on these poems. The poem deals, like the whole cycle, with the theme of psychosis
