Album Notes
The music of After Silence is not "classical" in the normal way, (although it might be thought so in a hundred years.) Rather, it is "songs without words" played on the classical guitar. It is melodic, easy-listening music that puts you in a state of calm and rest. The compositions are all about expressing feelings and telling a story to the listener – the best way of communicating for a composer!

This album is titled After Silence because silence is a key element in music. The total silence before the music begins is filled with expectations and excitement. And the silence after the music stops is bursting with echoes and thoughts and pictures about the music. Those moments are vital. And while they last just a few seconds, they are nevertheless the most important part of the musical sound. The rests creates space and time between the sounds. Without them, the sound would be meaningless, and so a great part of the music can be found between the notes.

About Per-Olov Kindgren

Swedish guitarist Per-Olov Kindgren was born in Bogotá, Colombia and came to Sweden when he was 4 years old. In 1970 he moved to Copenhagen, Denmark and started studying with Torvald Nilsson in Helsingborg, Sweden and after three years he entered the Danish Royal Academy of Music where he studied the classical guitar for seven years with professor Per-Olof Johnson and graduated with a final diploma in 1983. Since 1982 he has worked as a guitar teacher in the music schools of Vallensbæk and Gentofte near Copenhagen.

In 1979, he joined with three other guitarists to form the "Nordic Guitar Quartet", which over the years has performed more than 400 concerts. In 1991, the Quartet recorded the album "Images" which has become one of the best selling classical guitar albums in Denmark.

Mr. Kindgren composes and arranges works not only for the classical guitar but for other instruments as well. His soft and melodic and often melancholic pieces, are now being played all over the world and even used as music in film scores. Mr. Kindgren is currently widening his concerts activities.

Calming, Evocative, Uplifting!
As has been said in earlier reviews, I've been watching Peo's videos on YouTube for quite some time, and have many of them saved as favorites. I even created a player to attach to my MySpace page so that I could listen to them while at work. Now that I have this CD, I can enjoy his brilliance not only at work, but on my drive to and from work, or where ever I travel. This CD definately gives you a reason to smile, and calms the nerves of a hectic day at work, and allows you to navigate the relentless beckoning of anger while fighting rush hour traffic. Thank you Peo!

Keeps your mind open
What a beautiful CD, Peo! I can remember an indian word: "If what you want to say isn't more beautiful than silence, so don't say anything"
Your music awake the silence in my mind and leave only the beauty with a deep feeling of peace. Thanks Peo


Peace of mind
All I can say is thank you for sharing your talent with us.
You take me to another place inside myself beautiful, just beautiful : )

great music

You know you are a true Peo fan when you buy a second of his After Silence album simply because you are afraid you will wear the first one out and you don't want to be left without one for one single moment!

Long Awaited
Peo Kindgren has a huge devoted following on You Tube for his many videos, and his fans have been waiting for this CD for a while. It's no accident that it sold out quickly and the recording company is rushing to get more copies out to distributors. Although Peo has so many fans, rightly earned because of his artistry, he has retained his humility and kindness. He has the rare ability to connect intimately to fans the world over, through his compositions and performances of classic guitar pieces. When you need to have some quiet reflective space and just want to hear beautiful music to lift your spirit, put this album on. You will end up joining us in praising this kind-hearted and talented man.

after silence
The audio quality is quite nice with the intimate character one would hope for in this type of music. I've been a youtube fan of Mr. Kindgren for some time and his performances here are
5-star, just as they are on youtube! I'm hoping for more CD's from this wonderful artist.


Brilliant relaxing music
Peo,I like many other's have listened to your inspirational, wonderful music on youtube. How lucky we are to have found you. You are a truly exceptionally talented musician. I look forward to receiving your long awaited CD, just ordered. I wish you would also create a CD of all you play on youtube especially "stairway to heaven" and "Over the rainbow" your classical guitar music is so relaxing,a pure joy to listen too. Thank you for many hours of chilled out bliss. I cannot wait to hear your own compositions.
