F*** Brexit, It’s Piano Day!

The sun is shining, the lark is on the wing, the turkeys are roosting but, once more, all we’re faced with is yet more Brexit news. If there ever a reason to retreat from the crystal bucket in the corner and turn off the radio, it’s in these times of turmoil, a time for books and your music collection to prove that they are indeed worth their weight in gold.

It’s hat-wearing day today but ignoring that, more importantly, it’s Piano Day! Look!

“The aim of the day is to create a platform for piano related projects in order to promote the development of musical dimensions and to continue sharing the centuries-old joy of playing piano. Piano Day welcomes all kinds of piano lovers — young and old, amateur and professional, of any musical direction – to join in this years festivities. It is intended to be the most joyful of all holidays!”

A bold claim but one we’re willing to go along with. In fact, it’s been a pleasure to listen to this forthcoming release today, Profoundly Piano – A Personal Sketchbook by Australia-based composer and musician, Ric Mills. And profoundly piano it is – no strings getting in the way, no tubas and no warbling – genuinely stark naked piano and all the better for it. Even if you weren’t into meditation, it’s an album which sets your mind whirring, but not in a hysterical way – just enough to forget the every day humdrum. Highly recommended, look out for it.
