Album Notes
This is an album for the winter. The ice and the cosiness of the winters bright short days is cited as an inspiration behind many of the tracks. Tom Donald's improvisation mastery captures these emotions in his signature cinematic tone. Not all of the songs possess the same sweetness and longing as you hear in "The Essence of Forever", "Silver Sun" the title track uses an array of baroque-like ornaments transformed into a contemporary landscape and there are dark moments too such as "Luminosity" which feels like something from a Messiaen piano work. There is a mysterious change of mood for "Orphic Dance" and "Plentitude Prelude" is a display of Chopin meets Hans Zimmer demonstrating the composers' technical sonic awareness of the piano. Lento opening chords feel like a pop song but unexpectedly emerges into a Mahler-like Adagio. The highlight of the album is "The Essence of Forever" where you can hear Jarrett-like sentiments and phrasings and this a piece inspired by the composer's newborn daughter. A charming anecdote for winter displaying the composer's grasp of pianistic imagery.
