the title suggests. Contrary to the expectations associated with such an album, Mezgolits is not oriented towards a virtuoso, note-rich aesthetic. Rather, he is committed to a style that gets by without fast lines and – with one exception – without overdubs.

A solo album makes sense insofar as Mezgolits has always concentrated on reducing the ensemble, as on his quartet album Mostly Love Songs, which is without drums, as well as in the duo Bathyscaph with Domenic Landolf on bass clarinet.

Mezgolits plays his own pieces in an almost purist manner, proving that Unchanging is more than just an album title. Rather, it is a commitment to his own compositions to interpret them as sonorously as possible and not to place his own technical skills in the foreground. This results in ten pieces that are partly rubato, partly rhythmic, partly balladesque, but are all oriented towards song forms and are singable without being sung.
