ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Immerse deeply and travel lightly, searching for the treasure your soul delights in relating to your heart, music with a destination of pure love.

"I paint in the medium of music with strokes of impressionism in honor of the inspiration. All compositions are performed with expressive compassion for the love of the subject and an appreciation for the listeners time."

"Creating, a fragile moment as a winter chill affectionately yielding to the first warm spring breeze. A brief encounter, a wisp of sweet fragrance, an eclipse of radiance, the whisper of a wing, then a return to certainty. The embrace of instrument, soul and Creator welcoming truth, my eternal friend, for a short visit."

In creation with the Creator, writing with God's hand on my shoulder listening for His heavenly melody to replenish and purify my soul. Communicating the language of music feathered on the wings of the Spirit soaring to your heart with a gift of song. May the music bless your day, lighting a path of joy to our Lord praising his art we call creation.

An independent review by Serge Kozlovsky:

This is a realm of incredible sincerity. It is the flowing of a pure stream which transports you to a distant land of your most secret dreams. This is the musical world of Martin Horn…

You have never heard such elegance before and at the same time very minimalistic piano melodies. There isn't anything superfluous in the music of Martin Horn. It conveys all the composer's emotions very clearly and distinctly. And an inexpressible joy is present in his compositions. You'll listen to the music of “First Flight” and realize how wonderful it is to love and to be loved. And what a pleasure is simply to live in this amazing world.

Ten years of Martin Horn’s experience went into one hour and eight minutes' of music on this album. Listen to it and start your own journey into yourself. And the aerial wings of the composer’s inspiration will assist you to reach your own home which is your true inner essence...

Neo-Classical Beauty
Virtuosity combined with magnificent touch make for a recipe of DebussyLike classical flavor, with a passion for the love of music evident. The solo piano works are a stunning array of intricate handwork and the essence of melody. Use this CD for intent listening or the backdrop to your favorite book by the fire, it plays equally well. You can feel the emotion singing from Martin's piano in waves of understanding and delight.

Great composition, great performance!

A Piano Tapestry.
“First Flight” is the debut CD of Oregon pianist/composer Martin Horn. Inspired by the beautiful countryside surrounding him, Horn writes, “The songs are a thank you note to my Creator for his creation and a hope for others to open their eyes and see the wondrous works of God.” Also a poet and guitarist, Horn brings a wealth of life experience to the piano, and his nimble fingers are quite expressive. The music was composed over a ten-year period. More classical than jazz or pop, Horn has also written lyrics for several of the songs, which are posted on his website (www.martinhornmusic.com). The pieces range from soft and gentle to bigger and more triumphant, from fairly simple to intricate and complex. The eleven piano solos range in length from four to nine minutes.

“Horizon’s Kiss” begins the CD. Twinkling and bright like light dancing on water, Horn’s fingers show us immediately that they know their way around the piano! The piece becomes calmer and then builds, suggesting perhaps the horizon at various times of the day. The title track begins slowly, with an interesting cross-handed melody in the bass that alternates into the upper registers of the piano. Graceful and effortless, it’s quite an effective piece. “Dancing in the Light” also makes me think of light reflecting in water, creating lively sparkles. “Angel Tears” is an interesting exploration that seems to include quite a bit of improvisation. Various themes merge and evolve, weaving an elaborate musical tapestry. “Child On the Summit” is a favorite. It flows with a gentle energy that suggests wonder and discovery. “Silver Creek Miracle” is a tour de force that runs all over the piano with a multitude of themes and rhythms, sometimes slow and elegant, sometimes rather rambunctious and playful. “Flooded Souls” has such a variety of themes that it almost sounds like a medley. Sometimes rhythmic and jazzy, sometimes serene, it seems to be telling a very complicated story. “Too Late At the Gate” is also complex thematically. The beginning is reflective and thoughtful, with changing rhythms and a very rubato style. As it develops, it becomes darker and more intense, sometimes sad or regretful; the ending is very dark, indeed.

“First Flight” is an interesting first release, and we’ll hope it will be less than ten years for Martin Horn’s “Second Flight.” It is available from www.martinhornmusic.com, cdbaby.com, amazon.com, and iTunes.
