Caesura (a winter warmer)

As a follow up to Corduroy Road (see previous blog entry) here is another album by the brilliant Keith Kenniff (aka Goldmund and here recording under the moniker of Helios.) I’m posting this because it’s a fantastic album for the winter months and I think it’s perfect for snuggling up to when the snow is falling and you feel in need of a bit o warming – a hot toddy/cup of tea/chocolate hob nob/someone or something warm to hold and this little beauty – perfect. Enjoy

Corduroy Road

So here’s another little bit of pianistic loveliness by Goldmund (who you might remember from a few weeks ago on here.) This was his debut album on the Type A record label and is almost impossible to find on CD (so if anyone out there knows how I can get hold of a copy – drop me a line!) Hope you enjoy it.

The Malady of Elegance

I found another gorgeous album by an artist I hadn’t heard of before this week – a musician called Keith Kenniff who records under a variety of pseudonyms including ‘Goldmund’ and ‘Helios.’ The album below (embedding a whole album here – if it works!) is his second under the name Goldmund for the Type A record label. It’s a lovely piece of work – beautifully meditative and brilliantly recorded (I love the fact that you can hear the subtle beat of the piano pedals and the hammers striking the strings before the note sounds – it makes you feel as though you’re in the room.) The second track, ‘In A Notebook’ is just sublime and it’s one I’m finding myself returning to late in the evening many times.

Normally I’d post this kind of music on a Friday evening for chilling to at the end of a busy week but I’m off tomorrow so here it is a day early. It’s getting kind of reflective in here music-wise so my next music post will be something a little more up-tempo. Hope you enjoy this little slice of pianistic heaven as much as I did – especially ‘In A Notebook.’ Let me know what you think…
