ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PRAISE FOR ROY EATON
“There are occasions when this world gives us magic moments of inspiration, when our reason and our soul live a special life, which is unfettered by mundane earthly laws. It was exactly this kind of moment which an American pianist, Roy Eaton, gave to Muscovites who managed to get to his concerts.”
Moscow Courier
"...the cumulative effect was deeply satisfying. One came much closer to the heart of Chopin---and by extension to music itself."
The New York Times..

"His was an arresting performance..pure of tone, capable of the most eloquent and pliant lyricism..infused with rare sensitivity and taste"
The Chicago Daily News

"The peace and calm projected by the artist himself was felt by the audience throughout the entire performance..the listener became totally enveloped by the sound and the breathless silence that followed. It was an incomparable event.,,Phenomenal interpreter of Chopin"
Aargauer Tagblatt, Switzerland
PLAY FOR PEACE"... The title of this album say; it all. I am a firm believer in the power of music to reveal to us the essence of being.. Individually and collectively the pieces I chose to record portray in music a concept that is beyond the realm of words to convey....
PEACE...Bill Evans improvised an ever changing melodic landscape over a subtly changing bass figure.
PEACE....for Bach the inexorable harmonic and contrapuntal interplay of many voices with a singular message...praise GOD..the source of PEACE.
PEACE....Gymnopedie by Satie was an obvious choice.
PEACE...the mesmerizing focus of my twins Ravi and Ari at play inspired RaviAri.
PEACE...I felt it a loss that we usually only hear the Jazz inspired peacefulness of the 2nd movement of the Ravel Concerto when it is performed with Orchestra. The piano part sufficiently stands alone.
PEACE....Gershwin's Ab Prelude called "Melody #17"owes its genesis to the Chopin Prelude of the same number and key.
PEACE...The f minor Mazurka--the last composition written by Chopin is a valedictory that need never end. He wrote it with a da capo sign that did not specify how many times it should be repeated. It is truly a work of potentially infinite length. One day I might play an entire recital of just this piece repeated ad infinitum. PEACE...Bill Evans' "Peace Piece" owes a lot to Chopin's Berceuse in the similarity of design and mood.
PEACE...In Liszt's late nocturne "En Reve" we again have a valedictory last composition that eloquently reflects his final thoughts on the mystery of life.
PEACE...Fur Alina appropriately, quietly, and profoundly closes the CD through which I invest my talent to help initiate a new, higher world consciousness...my hope for the world...I PLAY FOR PEACE
