Simplicity made stunning
Valerie A. Lord | Malta, NY United States | 10/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"As in other Philip Aaberg recordings, the piano style is simple, yet profoundly moving. The melodies of these powerful movie themes are allowed to manipulate the background harmonies in a way that the essence of the theme always predominates. ( Oooo- that sounds SO pretentious!!) The choices of material will cater as easily to music lovers as film lovers, as much of the material comes from the rich source of independant and foreign films. What a treat to hear a performer pay tribute to CINEMA PARADISO, MY BRILLIANT CAREER, OUR TOWN, and other films which realized the dream of melding film with music. This is my absolute FAVORITE Aabeg recording. Trust me...if you LOVE "earth abides" on the windham hill "Winter Solstice III" CD, purchase this one... it sparkles."
One of the finest rainy day solo piano albums you can find
David B. Spalding | Chromejob-dot-com | 10/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"A young classical pianist once released an excellent album titled simply "music for a rainy day." THIS is the album that I like to play on any kind of day, and also to fall to sleep to. Aaberg has done a great service to several film composers by arranging their tender and evocative themes to the solo piano setting. Aaberg's touch is light, and the combined effect is of several storytellers' voices (musically, at least) gently emanating from the piano, rather than being played. Do I sound a bit "over the top?" If you have a chance to hear this album on a good hi-fi, you'll agree. Sadly, it's out of print, but if you can acquire a good copy here, you won't be disappointed. I mentioned falling asleep with this CD, but it is also, um, great candlelight dinner music as well."
