Notes & Reviews:

The sea has always been a powerful inspiration for composers and musicians, as the piano's seven-plus octaves provide an ideal vessel for oceanic music. Seascapes is a collection of some of the finest and most interesting pieces in piano literature influenced by or written for the ocean. Each piece in this collection evokes a different sense of the sea's limitless moods and splendor. The diversity of colors and styles are evident even in just the titles: Bedrich Smetana's Am Seegestade (On the Seashore), Sergei Bortkiewicz's Caprices de la mer, Eugène Guillaume's At the Sea, Suite for Piano (Shining Morning, The Rocky Beach, Rough Sea), Alec Rowley's Moonlight at Sea, Emil von Sauer's Flammes de Mer (Meeresleuchten), Felix Blumenfeld's Sur Mer, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's Alghe (from Sea Pieces), Ernest Bloch's The Sea Pieces: Waves, Chanty, At Sea, Marcelo de Manziarly's Impressions de mer (La grève (The Beach), Par une journée grise (On a Gray Day), Par une journée claire (On a Clear Day), Arthur Farwell's Marine, Leo Sowerby's The Shining Big Sea-Water, Cyril Scott's Sea-Marge: Meditation for Piano, Theodor Leschetizky's Jeu des Ondes (Play of Waves), and Alec Templeton's Skye Variations. From peaceful meditations, dramatic reflections of violent waves, to a depiction of marine luminescence, the pieces in Seascapes and Janice Weber's unique playing truly encompass the vast possibilities for creation that the majestic sea can inspire.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
I used to collect music like this, based on non-musical themes. I thought there were only a few items here that really interested me - but when I added it up it was 25 or 30 minutes of music I will listen to again. Buy this to get acquainted with some interesting music.
