Truly, A Day At The Beach
Theodore A Povinelli | St. Louis, Missouri, USA | 12/13/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I often find that when I listen to New Age music or Classical music mixed with the sounds of nature something seems missing. Perhaps the nature sounds drown out the music, or perhaps the music does not match well with the chosen sounds of nature, or sometimes the instrumentation doesn't fit well. In the case of this CD, "A Day At The Beach", none of these problems appear. If ever there was a perfect blend of the correct nature sounds, music compositions and chosen instrumentation, this CD is it. Living in Savannah, Georgia for seven years, I spent many pleasent moment on the beaches there listening to the ocean sometimes gently, sometimes harshly, crashing upon the sand with the seagulls and dolphin playing in the air and sea (respectively, of course...). This CD, with its beautiful piano renditions of truly nine of the most heart rendering compositions ever written by man, takes me back there. It will sweep you away from your tiring day to the peace and calm of the beach and ocean which I myself used to enjoy so well. There is not a single bad selection on the CD, starting softly with Gymnopedie 1 & 3, building up slowly to Pachebel's most beautiful of all Canon In D Major, and finishing superbly with Beethoven's Pathetique. If you enjoy the beach, if you like beautiful music played brilliantly on the piano, then this is the CD for you."
