" A significant achievement !
Peter Pritchard NZ ( Prolific new age composer and pianist of the Nature Store's hit piano album the New Zealand
Harmonic Piano from the 1990s ).
< The title track is rather lengthy and like the track Transcendence , it's an emotional power house : musically and artistically
The solo Appassionata Cantando is perhaps the most recorded of the composer's music and his persona favorite , As with lots
of his work it contains a quiet energy on a relaxed beat and is has a compelling melody .
Some of the other tracks are very classically inspired , taking years to perfect , and two are spontaneous jazz creations , Lost Moments and White Billows were created off the cuff as improvisations despite the composers long list of unpublished sheet music scores !
The composer thinks beautiful compelling melody is the most important ingredient in a song and is highly critical of other types of music that don't measure up . Too much music today is simply recorded in a studio using great sounding equipment and virtuoso artists but the actual material is cliche , weak melodically and a doubtful contribution to humanity . In addition , most
piano music recorded to day fails artistically for it's lack of clear tone , nuance and dynamics , without these musical qualities it's hardly ever great . Music should be able to whisper or roar , it either does or it does not. Refined nuance should always be the
goal of great piano recordings and compositions .
Dream Walker the album is foreboding , dark , mellow , warm and in words of Peter Pritchard , well known prolific New Zealand composer and pianist " A significant achievement ! "
For the price of a latte you can download one of the composer's greatest works you will love and enjoy forever !
