Reviews

A Relaxing and Personal Album.
Quite a bit of the music on this album reflects a Pre-Baroque style of playing. It's not cluttered with a lot of instruments. Rather it's just one person and their instrument. Simplicity in music is just as moving as more complex compositions. The feel is just different.In fact, "for me anyways". One instrument being played is the essential foundation and essence of what music is. It's more personal. "IF" your the one playing the instrument. Where playing in a group is more social. If you want more solidarity in the music you listen to. Just imagine yourself the playing the instrument on these recordings. Who knows? It might inspire you to want to learn an instrument.
