The piano waltz is a well tried and tested format for arranging music, it has been explored by classical masters such as Schubert and Chopin and modern day film composers like Yann Tiersen and Alberto Iglesias. In this series 10 B&T composers and collaborators provide their own unique take on the piano waltz from solo piano pieces to pieces with subtle layers of field recordings and sound design brought into the mix.
I listen to this album all the time when I'm working or when I want to lay down and chill. I love the blend of piano, violin, and more modern beats and sounds. It's hard to pick a favorite track as I think the entire album is a whole experience, so I'd say start at the beginning with Melding and let the rest flow through you. iuliathe3rd
There is a presence to Perkins' music that is so very attentive to its listener. He makes sure you feel the emotions he's trying to express, but not in an overbearing way, but one that leaves you eager to feel more of it. This cup, whether happy or sad is definitely overflowing. Lost Tribe Sound
This is one of five long-term members of my wishlist, which I was able to promote into my collection all at once thanks to a generous name-your-price promotion granted by the fine "bigo & twigetti" label. Fiona Brice is a name you will bump into several times while flipping through the label's catalog. Her breathtaking 1st String Quartet in three movements is an exciting contribution to contemporary classical chamber music. Sven B. Schreiber (sbs)
