Following on from Reflections and Recollections Volume 1 – Mark John McEncroe’s first successful solo piano Music CD and Sheet Music – Volume 2 is now soon to be released. The subject matter is a reflection on and recollections of Mark's life experiences to date, using subjects from his garden as references that trigger memories. This does not apply to every piece however and Mark finds himself inspired by a combination of classical and orchestral influences. #classicalpiano
In 2013 the Australian composer Mark John McEncroe travelled to the Czech Republic to record the first of his orchestral pieces. The first of those recording sessions was the recording of “A Symphonic Poem in D minor” and “The Passing” for his forthcoming orchestral music CD and full orchestra scores.

The biggest regret I have is the fact I lack the time & energy to achieve proficiency in all aspects of my musical endeavours. I’m faced with the fact that if I spent more time on piano & clarinet practice I might become a modestly reasonable musician. In short composition has become an extremely demanding mistress. That’s it really & I’m learning to live with that.
To date I’m working on what will probably be four volumes CDs of piano music under the banner “Reflections & R
There are in most people, I think, many sides to their passions. I have always been a hands on person, for example, being a chef. I need that physical tactile element to all the things that I do. I was drawn to landscape garden design for the same reason. In particular Koi gardens, fish ponds and Japanese Gardens. This passion for Koi gardens inspires me as a composer of easy listening piano music. I seriously considered installing Koi Gardens professionally after I retired
