ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is an ambient suite for Celtic harp, piano & viola-da-gamba.

Multi-instrumentalist and master of the Celtic harp, David Michael has been playing stringed instruments for 55 years. Here he blends the haunting voice of viola-da-gamba (predecessor of the cello) and piano with his gentle and expressive harp playing to create a suite of trios, duets and solos for these three instruments. David is well known for his solo harp recordings and over 20 multi-track studio albums, but this is his first foray into performing every part himself on a multi-track CD.

After the Rain is introspective, exploratory and impressionistic. It contains concise compositions yet employs elements of improvisation—a hallmark of David’s production style and one of his techniques for keeping the performances sounding fresh and inspired.

As co-owner of a massage school,run by his wife Dari, David has ample opportunities to provide music for the healing arts and he composed this suite of gentle pieces with that in mind. The simple music is slow and suitable for massage or meditation, yet is born of sophisticated understanding of classical forms. The arrangements are intended to satisfy the ear in any kind of contemplative setting.

REVIEWS:

“The entire CD is an exploration into musical meditation and relaxation. Even though there are no recognizable or predictable melodies, nothing unpredictable gets in the way of immense enjoyment. The pieces are gentle and kind to the ears as well as the soul.”
- Folk harp Journal (Summer 2013)

“Lovely, very classical and masterful … For you who want to be transported away from the clutter, noise and fast pace of modern society, this gets my highest recommendation! Your spirits will be moved and your soul calmed.”
-Chris Lunn (founder of Victory Review)
