    New Kerani Album Highly Recommended For Her Piano Playing And Production

    NEW KERANI ALBUMHIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR HER PIANO PLAYING AND PRODUCTION

    Kerani’s last threealbums -- STARDUST, ARCTIC SUNRISE and EQUILIBRIUM -- have been brilliant andrespectively went to #1, #2 and #3 on the international contemporaryinstrumental music chart (Zone Music Reporter) which proves she is right upthere with the top new age and modern-classical musicians in the world. Now Kerani has released a new album (hersixth) called SMALL TREASURES and it proves to be a very great treasureindeed. As usual with Kerani, shesurrounds her keyboard work with real acoustic musicians, in this case threetop flutists, a string quartet, and on a couple of tracks a violinist and anacoustic guitarist. She also brings in alady to sing on one composition and recite poetry on another, and anotherfemale to add background wordless vocalizations on some of the pieces. But probably the most noteworthy change onthis particular album is that there is virtually no synthesizer to be heard(even though Kerani has made a name for herself as a top synth performer) andher piano playing is featured throughout. No matter, it sounds wonderful. Her original compositions are still highly melodic and extremely wellarranged and produced. The whole thingsounds like another Kerani masterpiece. With those slight changes, she proves she is willing to keep venturinginto new territory, exploring new sounds and arrangements, and giving herfan-base something fresh to enjoy. Thereis a bit of Celtic flair to “Celtic Mystery” and “Temple of Roses,” a Japanesefeeling to “Sakura,” and beautiful piano-flute-violin interplay within “Gardenof Dreams.” Kerani really comes into herown as a pianist on this album which features some of her most prominent andforceful piano playing. Highlyrecommended.

    I am very fond of Celtic-style music, so this has me interested. Thank you.
