Notes & Reviews:

Peter Halstead, annotator of this collection of essays, poems and notes about the music performed on this recording states that there are "... nine pieces that imitate the various guises of water... unaffected and beautiful boat songs... " The pianist actually took a piano into the Himalayas along with a sound engineer, piano technician and trekkers to make this recording, which is offered in hybrid SACD format as well as Blu-Ray, providing a realism never before possible. The Blu-Ray disc includes photos taken in the Himalayan valley where the recording was made.
