Staccatophos is a collection that I realized as a musical satire, shortly after completing Haunting Pleasures. This collection has a funny anecdotic air around it as I always hated piano exercises that treated the staccato touch. In these pieces, one gets the impression that I make it all good what I formerly missed out: it is a true apotheosis of staccato, almost a staccato orgy, and there is much humor expressed in this music. When you have been taught music by teachers who never understood you, the only way to heal this narcissistic wound is humor. I am ridiculing here the whole sordid practice of so-called ‘classical piano’ thrown over the head of innocent children, and acting as a curse for their entire life. Strong humor and a sense of broad-minded sarcasm dissolves curses, obsessions, and traumata of all kinds!
