Holger Skepeneit: Music for Piano and Strings

Holger Skepeneit (piano)

The compositions on this album have been described as emotional and alluring, classical yet contemporary and with a certain cinematic quality. The sense of storytelling is all-pervasive and flowing piano textures, lush string writing and lyrical melodic lines alternate with moments of solitude and contemplation.
