Do you love the sound of a passionately played violin? Do you like cinematic movie music? Do you like instrumental music that paints a picture or tells a story? Well, then you'll love 'Melodia', because the music on 'Melodia' is all three of the above! This is a wonderful CD to relax to, to dream to, or to fall asleep to. It is also a wonderful antidote to rush hour traffic when played in your car. More than one artist listens to 'Melodia' while painting. It is a stimulant to imagination. MELODIA WAS A FIRST ROUND CONTENDER IN THE 2006 GRAMMY COMPETITION IN THREE CATEGORIES, INCLUDING 'BEST CLASSICAL CROSSOVER ALBUM'. Melodia is a full 54 minutes and 14 seconds long. Long enough to take your spirit on an enchanting magic carpet ride though a full range of feeling. 'For me, the best music awakens the beauty of the listener.' ---Gary Schnitzer.
