Handfull of Quietness
What can you expect from a handfull of quietness? •A powerful and introspective journey of transformation inspired by a passage from Ecclesiastes: better a hand filled with quietness than two hands filled with toil and a striving after wind •Fifteen beautiful piano solos, including arrangements of A Gift to Be Simple, the Irish folk song Shule Agra, and the Gregorian chant Veni Creator Spiritus. •Not always quiet music, but music achieving quietness of the soul. •Created as one unified work and performed in silence. Pianist Kathleen Ryan offers truly spiritual music-music to nourish your spirit, again and again. Music as rich and complex as life, passionate and alive, expressing a full range of emotion and serving as a mirror of the rich inner life. "Ryan paints in the impressionism of silence, with notes resonating over the vast plains of the soul." -Echoes What can you expect from a classical musician whose first favorite sound was marbles rolling in the grooves of an aluminum dishpan? •Bright, sassy, alluring music •Spacious, exuberant, crystalline music •A tornado of notes, thunder and lightning, and inside the eye of that musical storm, reflection and thoughtful silence •Intensity, passion and playfulness that comes through loud and clear •Music that adds sanity to this world.
