My first solo album has materialised at last. For years I have wanted to do something like this, but group activities with EKSEPTION and TRACE didn't allow it.
To realise a record like this means breaking out of pop music and immersion in a totally different musical style; it also means a completely different approach to the keyboard instrument and being able to reach and maintain the technical standards necessary in playing classical music.
I simply wanted to make an album of good music for listening, and I hope that the pleasure I have had in making this LP together with the carefully chosen orchestra and a fine production team, will reach you too as listener.
