Sundown: A Windham Hill Piano Collection

 

^ Good compilation indeed. It carefully blends pieces that are slightly dark or bright. I have had that album for a while but somehow forgot to mention it.

I don't blame you, Norbert. William Ackerman is a big name in New Age. His Imaginary Roads and Returning (greatest hits) are both great. I don't think there is a thread dedicated to New Age Guitar; if you open a new thread, I will follow you there.

Somehow I like Scott Cossu's "When Spirits Fly Again" better than "Tides Between Us". Although both are excellent.

 

 

 

FalconP, do you like She Describes Infinity and Reunion more than the above two albums? I cannot find that album in my MOG (internet radio) but can buy it from Amazon in the future.

 

I can listen to Scott Cossu in any mood. For Phil Coulter, sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. Not sure why.

Thanks Happy Camper for introducing more artists! I heard Ralph Zurmuhle and Lorie Line before, but forgot to mention them. Indeed both of them are established New Age/contemporary pianists.

Another very enjoyable panist is Keith Martinson.  His two CD's, Today and Faith Hope and Love get regular play at my home.

 

Graet thread, BTW.

^ Thank you jdandy for chiming in with new recommendations!

I feel that Robin Spielberg (e.g., "A New Kind of Love") may have a similar style as Keith Martinson.

^ Thanks. I like Dale Jessee's "On Fire". It is energetic in a way that is similar to Rob Costlow's "Woods Of Chaos".

OK, this one is listed as jazz but feels similar to the mentioned artists.

Keiko Matsui.

For me , the best "modern" piano piece ever,

is the opening of the final fantasy X game:

 

 

Otherwise each soundtrack of final fantasy, have a "piano" version, you might enjoy it.

@ Happy Camper

Keiko Matsui produces both Jazz and New Age works (although leaning more towards Jazz). Thanks for mentioning her. I heard of her works before, as she has been mentioned a few times in other piano-related threads here.  

 

@ extrabgmehdi

Yiruma is of a similar style, but with less repetition and more complexity/melody.
