CD of the Week (April 12 -16)

Forest Magic

In early 20th century Australia almost every home contained a piano, taking pride of place in the parlour and providing hours of entertainment. Consequently, a great deal of piano music both for the home and the concert hall was composed. This is the inspiration for pianist Jeanell Carrigan’s Forest Magic, a themed recording featuring music written by the composers of that era. There are works about forests, leafy lanes, mists, and joyful rain. There is a cacophony of bird sounds and just as trees can resemble dreams, this music creates dreams and visions.
