ELEMENTAL DREAMS
______________________
With guest oboist - Sandra Moore

ELEMENTAL DREAMS was conceived as a musical journey through distant time, foreign place, and sacred space. The CD features the piano and symphonic arrangements of Daniel Gautier. The music encompasses a range of styles and sound textures, from the lyrical to percussive, from the soft and intimate to the macrocosmically grand.
ELEMENTAL DREAMS serves as a testament to those limitless, fundamental forces found in nature, and in our own innermost natures.

Among the selections on the CD are:
Fire in the Night - an invocation of the powers of heavenly night and first creation, through the symphonic sounds of bells, voices, piano and soaring strings.
Sun Heart - reflections on the romantic yearning for union and completion.
River Temple - a rhythmic, percussive journey through the unearthly scales of the East.
Butterfly - an Impressionistic flight of fancy for piano and synthesizer.
The Fire of Ecstasy - extended variations on Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" theme, from his Ninth Symphony.



 
THE SUN'S CALENDAR

This new CD of solo piano music provides a interpretation of the illustrated book of poetry, The Sun's Calendar, by Daniel Gautier, which describes Man and Nature's procession through the cycle of the months and seasons. For each section of the twelve month cycle, there is an accompanying piano composition, with thirty three pieces in all.

The book and music use the Sun's annual journey as a means to express the odyssey of the human soul through its cycles of birth, joy, sorrow, love, death and rebirth. 

(Time: 79 min.)
