Unseen Worlds

Solo piano works by a classically trained Ethiopian composer and pianist. This album focuses on folklore music but sounds like very accessible, beautiful modern classical without any of the stylistic revolutions of the 20th century. RIYL Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou, Claude Debussy, Frederic Chopin, Erik Satie

***1. (6:49) Dramatic dark flair. Beautiful passage of time
*2. (8:44) Jazzy opening, making merry in times of sadness
***3. (6:47) Very Satie, Debussy, trills and runs up and down the scales, wide exploration. Named for a cheery ululation expressing deepest joy
**4. (9:21) Uses spirited, rolling modes from the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, dark thrilling
**5. (8:56) Strong sturdy Chopin influenced piece
