ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Some people say there's nothing new to say in piano music. I say let them listen to this album!"

Piano: Myrto Akrivou

A collection of 9 works for solo piano by composers:
Andrew Sigler
Paul Poston
Carlos Alvarez Torno
Nickos Harizanos
Barnaby Hollington
Jaap Cramer
Scott A. Miller
Christos Papageorgiou
and
Nikolas Sideris

Sadly we live in a world plagued by fear and hatred. Terrorists' attached based on religion, provocations beyond doubt, chronic matter of race relations and police brutality, civil wars... and there seems to be no end to all things negative and miserable.

But we are not alone and we should not give up. Even when all light seems to be missing there is still something positive to be found. Beauty (and hope) is not only in the eye of the beholder, but is also always present in even the most dire situations. We just have to look harder!

This project is an attempt by many people to leave behind a positive outlook of things happening today, in this century. I hope that our children will be able to enjoy what we've left for them and that perhaps there are more people out there for whom our feelings resonate.

9 composers, 3 artists and a pianist combined their forces to offer the recording available in this album. What's vital is that there's a common thread going through all the works, even if composed independently. Each work is connected with the others and if this is true, then perhaps there's a way for all of us to communicated eventually!

Crafted with great care and love, every work, found in this album, is a product of years of experience from each composer, and amazingly long hours on the piano, by the pianist, Myrto Akrivou. This is a unique listening experience!

The score is available through the Editions Musica Ferrum website!
