Piano Portraits 2002

About the Album: Have you ever heard the first light of morning or the quiet dignity of a redwood forest? Piano Portraits brings together four artists who use music as their canvas and the piano as a paintbrush. These composers convey through their artistry the peace of an afternoon rain, the serenity of a grove of trees, and the glory of a sunrise. As skilled artists do, these pianists will allow you to feel what they have felt, see as they have seen, and experience the beauty they have savored. Listen to how Jon Schmidt hears rays of the sun above mountains. Hear how Paul Cardall imparts the rhythm of a rainstorm. Let Michael R. Hicks share his awe at the majesty of a woodland and then let David Tolk show you what he sees through those trees. Enjoy each piano portrait.
