ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Nightingale is a programmatic work of art tracking events depicted in the short story of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen. It features the incredible Bulgarian flutist Yana Nikol and the equally gifted cellist Katherine Colburn. Rounding out this trio on piano is the composer of the music and producer of the project, Mark Christopher Brandt. This music is for anyone and everyone - whether a classical music fan, a jazz fan, or simply a music lover of any kind.

The uncanny and prophetic parallels between the emperor in the Nightingale - who was tricked into choosing a cheesy mechanical bird over the real thing, and the majority of humans slowly dying of starvation for that which is real - while unwittingly choosing tweets, texts, pixels, programmed beats and songs digitally pieced together, became the inspiration for Mark as he composed this music. Not found in the download world, Mark placed a telling line in the hard copy liner notes:

“If we truly loved Reality, we would not be so blissfully tricked by illusion.”
