The Perfect Gift This Season!
I just finished listening to Piano for the Holidays and I give it a major thumbs up! If you're still shopping for gifts, this is the perfect one for the holiday season. This will be appreciated by all ages as it is a collection all the well known favorite Christmas songs beautifully rendered on piano. Michael's performance is flawless and his interpretation of these standards is beyond compare. I have always loved the simple beauty of solo piano and am more than pleased to add this to my Christmas catalog of music. You will be too!

Piano for the Holidays


I love Christmas music ... especially instrumental music and this CD, "Piano for the Holidays" is just beautiful! It is great for all occasions ... intertaining, dinner music, "at work" music. You will enjoy it from beginning to end! Buy one for you and one as a gift! Great job, Michael!

A very enjoyable collection
“Piano For the Holidays” is a very enjoyable collection of solo piano interpretations of fourteen Christmas favorites. The arrangements are strong and very enjoyable, and are also quite traditional in that they don’t deviate much from the melodies as we usually hear them. It’s a very straightforward and sincere album without a lot of flash and bravado - just good, uncluttered arrangements. This would be a great album to have playing during a holiday meal or while opening gifts with the family. Titles include “The First Noel,” “Jingle Bells,” “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” and “Silent Night” - pretty much all the standard favorites.

A True Yuletide Treat.
Just lovely. Michael Loonan is a professional pianist who does it all in the Twin Cities area. And he does it all here, too, by producing, arranging, and performing "Piano for the Holidays," a wonderful instrumental collection to make those fireside moments oh-so-memorable this holiday season.

Yes, you have heard these songs before. All 14 cuts represent well-loved, ancient carols. Loonan's interpretations hit the mark; they are inventive, but not overblown. I found myself looking forward to each new track with great anticipation, wondering what subtle magic Loonan would perform on each piece. I was not disappointed--this is a consistently superior album and a true delight for those who especially enjoy piano renditions of holiday standards.

Loonan's fancy fingerwork brings emotion, humor, style, and warm insight to the songs he plays. I have never met Michael, but I feel like an old friend--and that he is performing just for me and my family. He makes all the right artistic choices, making it difficult to select favorite songs from the group. If push came to shove, however, I would select the multi-layered and melancholy "What Child Is This?" and his rich "Silent Night," which works through some exciting and dramatic transitions.

If piano is your Christmas bag, then fill 'er up with Michael Loonan's "Piano for the Holidays," a true yuletide treat.

Best for Holiday Entertaining and Relaxing!!!
I tracked this down after hearing it. I consider it the best Christmas CD I now own because it is so wonderfully clear with beautiful arrangements. Perfect for dinner music, background music, and quiet listening music. Love it, love it, love it. Will be watching for Loonan's other recordings. He has a special touch with the piano.
