Insomnia is the story of a nocturnal journey, reassuring and disturbing at the same time, both mystical and unpredictable. An escape from ourselves into the soft focus the night, but then leading us back again at the end, taking us even deeper inside ourselves. Insomnia is the aimless wanderings of the Sleepless One, through inner and outer worlds which remains hidden during the harsh light of day. Insomnia is five Hymns to the Night, composed by five American composers over a period of nearly 100 years. One focus of Kai Schumacher's solo repertoire has been on American piano music of the late 20th and the 21st centuries. His debut album of Frederic Rzewski’s monumental variation cycle The people united will never be defeated! (2010) was celebrated by FonoForum magazine as 'a pianistic sensation'.

Insomnia from German pianist Kai Schumacher takes listeners on a nocturnal odyssey into a mystical and unpredictable world that remains hidden during the day. The album features works about the night by five American composers, written over a period of nearly 100 years. Alongside music by George Gershwin, John Cage, George Crumb and Brian Belet is Urban Nocturnes, a piece by Bruce Stark composed specifically for this recording. 48 kHz, 24-bit PCM – haenssler CLASSIC Studio Masters.
