A collection of easy listening musical images for piano, performed by pianist John Martin. 13 melodious, reflective and thought provoking tunes. Music to relax to, music to enjoy and music you will want to play over and over.


I regard my pieces more like "musical paintings", and have been greatly inspired by the French Impressionist period. As Claude Monet was greatly inspired by his magnificent garden, I too have used my modest Japanese koi pond and bonsai courtyard garden as a setting for my pieces. Hence the references to water, shadows, climate, fish...

The idea behind these offerings is to express my recollections of my life experiences framed within the reference of a garden setting. These pieces are not intended to further the boundaries of musical innovation, or to showcase virtuosity, but essentially to transport the listener on their own journey of reflection and recollection.


Recorded with John Martin at Trackdown, Sydney in March 2016.

These pieces are also available on
Reflections & Recollections Vol. 1 performed by pianist Helen Kennedy, and Musical Images for Piano performed by Yoko Hagino
