ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
HI Everyone! Welcome to the beautiful season of winter . I just put up some new live performance videos on YOUTUBE. Please check it out!


I was just looking at the word environment tonight when I saw the words "SimpleCity" That's the key message I've attempted to portray doing this recording: to be and live in a simpler place, a simpler environment, a simpler city. where we are with just the essential, nothing more. Yes, more than ever I believe we need to fill our lives with less so we can appreciate more. Being more simple, we can open our hearts towards much larger horizons."

Mark opened up in concert for internationally acclaimed New Age pianist/composer Michael Jones to promote this recording. It was a concert given
at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto, Canada.

New Age recording artist George Winston New Age Grammy Award Winner, commented after listening to Mark's Cd SIMPLICITY "I really enjoyed this album." .
REVIEWS: "This collection of 11 pieces for solo piano (TOTAL TIME OF CD: (67:12) resounds with the feeling of contemplation, deep thought and careful observation....Unassuming and gracious PInkus demostrates a sensitivity to the simple pleasures in life..PInkus's piano style is thoughtful and naturalistic without becoming overtly cloying or overwrought. He has an ability to exploit certain registers of the piano for their nuance of timbre in creating his mood-filled emotional soundscapes...this collection of piano pieces represents a tribute to the natural world, to the spirit of the individual, to the triumph of human emotion and experience. I believe Pinkus wants to encourage us all to find more simplicity in our lives."Bryan Hachey, Toronto, Canada.

"Since George Winston's "December" Album" this is the best piano recording that I've been given to listen to." Yves Ducharme, L'ere Nouvelle Magazine, Quebec

"Simplicity is where there is peace and tranquility, A place where you have time to look at the trees and walk in the countryside, A place where you can feel the wind and contemplate the sky, A place that keeps you company as the seasons change, A place where there is nothing more beautiful than being you." Mark Pinkus

(This cd was recorded on a rich and deep sounding Steinway Grand piano). THANK YOU AND I HOPE YOU ENJOY THE MUSIC.

Simplicity
Mark's music takes me away on an inner journey. Every time I listen to this album, I experience something different. It reminds me to slow down and pay attention to the subtler vibration of life and touches the feeling part of me that often gets shelved in this busy life.

writer/fan
I've been a huge fan of Mark Pinkus' music since a friend turned me onto this, his first CD, "Simplicity" several years ago. After a stressful day of work I like to lie down on my couch and decompress to the beautiful relaxing piano melodies that "Simplicity" features. By the end of the CD's final track I'm re-energized and ready to move from the couch to the yoga mat where I do my practice to the accompaniment of another listen of "Simplicty" This ritual has evolved to include Mark"s four subsequent releases, all of which I highly recommend. But if you're new to the wonderful music that Mark Pinkus has created, I'd simply suggest to start at the beginning...with "Simplicity" Robert, Montreal

One of the greatest albums of solo piano I have heard. The music is very inspiring to me and creates a lot of really nice feelings.

Simple, yet not
The great task for any musician and composer is to communicate emotion simply masking the underpinnings of sophisticated compositional style. Mr. Pinkus does this so well.
