Album Notes
A melodic piano piece by composer Karen Biehl, “As It Was, Ages Hence” is about reminiscing
and longing for beautiful idyllic times from the past. One of the first pieces ever composed by
Karen, it is just now being released to the public.

Before she began composing music, Karen would hear melodies in her head that she would hum to
herself. While studying opera in her early 20’s, she would often come up with her own vocal
exercises based on those melodies. In time, Karen realized that these melodies were compositions
and she began composing music. The melody from “As It Was, Ages Hence” was one that haunted
her for many years until the day she finally composed the piece.

Karen wrote “As It Was, Ages Hence" during a time of intense yearning for her True Love, a man she
felt she remembered from long ago. The inspiration behind the piece came from a vision Karen had
of a magical land from long ago where she and her True Love were one. In this mystical land, the
colors of nature were unusually vibrant and the trees would sway, sigh and sing with the wind.

"In a land where the trees are sighing,
To the tones of a melody
I can hear on a wing my love singing,
I can hear my True Love’s call.

In that land where the trees are enchanting
To the tones of a melody,
I can hear my True Love call me
To the land where we are one.” - Karen Biehl

About Karen:
Born and raised in Dallas, Karen Biehl began studying music at the age of 8, when she began
taking piano lessons and playing violin in her school orchestra. She studied piano throughout
her childhood and played violin with the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra and All-Region Orchestra.

Karen studied voice with former Metropolitan Opera tenor Thomas Hayward at Southern
Methodist University, where she received a degree in Vocal Performance. While at SMU, she
also studied music theory and electronic music composition with composer Jack Waldenmaier,
continued her studies in piano, and played violin in the Meadows Symphony Orchestra under
the direction of Anshel Brusilow.

After graduation, Karen sang in the Dallas Opera Chorus for a season before her studies took
her to San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where she completed a masters degree in singing,
performing various roles with the San Francisco Conservatory of Music Opera. After studying
and performing in Italy for a few months, Karen moved to Manhattan where she performed
soprano leading roles with several small local opera companies.

Over time, Karen preferred to create melodies of her own and focus on her own creative
experience. In 1999, she began composing a collection of music inspired by visions of her
True Love, whom she called “The Maestro”. After finally meeting him, a musician and Maestro
indeed, she was inspired to create guided meditations, all set to her musical compositions, to
assist others in overcoming obstacles and in fulfilling their dreams.

Karen created her first guided meditation, “Journey to True Purpose”, to help the Maestro’s
students with focusing in the classroom and finding their true self and purpose. She then
created “Journey to True Love: A Guided Meditation to Attract the Love of Your Dreams”
to help others seeking their partner, using the exact same methods she used to attract her
true love into her life. In her meditation “Journey to True Health”, she shares guidance she
received during two health crises that helped her avoid surgery.

In mid-November 2018, Karen released her first solo piano album, “Starlight Dreams”, a
collection of relaxing and reflective piano music to stir your soul and awaken your dreams.
The album was named “Best Solo Piano Album 2018” by New Age Music Guide and ranked #4
on their top 10 albums of 2018. "Starlight Dreams" has also been nominated for the “Best Neo
Classical Album 2018” award for One World Music Radio’s awards in June 2019.

Karen is highly motivated by a desire to solve problems and transform difficult experiences into
blessings for both herself and others. Inspired by high levels of stress experienced as a result of
working in New York City, Karen most recently created a short guided meditation called “Portal to
Peace: A Mini Meditation for Minutes which released in February 2019.

True class and panache
Apart from the stunning artwork that comes with this new offering, here is a composition bathed a time past, this memory filled opus is delightfully performed on piano by number one artist Karen Biehl and with the smoothness and flair of a natural entertainer.
As It Was, Ages Hence has a soft string section within its construction and an almost dance ethic can be found here, perhaps of two lovers dancing arm in arm through the forest. From the moment this track plays a story unfurls and is easily an offering that I could see fitting into a movie or television segment.
Karen Biehl has raised the bar with each and every composition she has created and now with this single, I see her standing within her genre elevated even further, this is a single of true class and panache.
