I was on my way out to a friend’s place in the Texas Hill Country one Saturday evening. It was a pretty drive and this song came on the FM radio. I sat in his driveway for the final 5 minutes just to find out who it was so I could buy the disc.
This won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I believe it is a pleasing piece and I hope some will enjoy this as I have. It starts slow and quiet in case you wonder if it is playing or not. Michael Nyman wrote the music for the movie The Piano, by the way.
