RAINLIGHT - EVOCATIONS OF WATER FOR PIANO SOLO
JEREMY ESKENAZI

From the gentle to the torrential, water in nature affects, blesses (and afflicts) us in many ways, and composers have been drawn to this theme time and again. Here one of the world's brightest young pianists, in his first CD for us, pulls together a stunning programme representing little raindrops and fountains to oceans and stormy tempests, and including five very fine and atmospheric new pieces by British-Australian composer Alicia Grant.

CD DURATION:  79:18

“The experiment (to mix and match different styles and epochs) succeeded. The classical works and the pieces by Alicia Grant set each other off nicely. I did not feel the urge to skip anything even on repeated listening, The music by Grant is beautiful and evocative, and I found the entire concept of the album interesting.” – Oleg Ledeniov (MusicWeb)
