A Satie-esque Collection of Musical Impressions
McEncroe's latest album, Musical Images for Piano, has received a great review at cinemusical.
"The recording itself offers a rich piano sound and Hagino’s performances are often quite moving.
"The collection plays like a modern impressionist set featuring nice melodic content and traditional harmony which, in one way, sort of answers the question, “What if Satie wrote a couple hours of Gymnopedie?” Here, it results in a couple of hours of relaxing, unobtrusive piano music."
"The effect over time is rather mesmerizing in its own way as each gentle melody wafts across the soundscape."
Musical Images for Piano, released through Navona, is available now for download and streaming.
