Radiomovies Piano News!

Well.. after lots and lots of talking and negotiating.. it looks like we can get the piano pieces released!! Initially on itunes, emusic and spotify.. as well as a nice coffee table version.

Please let me know with your comments which ones definitely make the cut!

Here’s a track called Watermark for solo piano[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/watermark.mp3%5D

After the Moonlight (Piano Trio)[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/13-fast-gathering-tears.mp3%5DAnd… This is new too The Daguerreotype [Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/jb2-old-photos.mp3%5DHere’s another recorded in Finchcocks, a stately home and piano museum. The instrument used is a Viennese double strung piano – a very rare and extremely fragile instrument. [Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/04-moon-over-meadow.mp3%5D The piece is (as yet) unnamed, but is based on the idea of an empty drawing room at night – except, that is, for the piano. It holds within its wood and strings snatches of music, harmonics and melodies that others have played on it… Any ideas for names gratefully accepted – the more literary the better! Here’s a second piece recorded on a Steinway – a slow ballade waltz [Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/jb3-ballade.mp3%5D Here’s a third piece called The Long Letter[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/07-10-long-letter.mp3%5D Here’s the obvious one (of Jane Austen fame)… Crystallised Beauty – the (not often heard) full-length version of the track:] And here’s one called for Elena[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/22-9-for-elena.mp3%5D This is a piece (with strings) called keep walking[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/pssst.mp3%5D

    Hi Mr. Sheppard,

    You are on my list of favourite composers! I especially love the finchcocks piece, the piano trio, The Long Letter and Keep Walking. And will Not Coming Back and Close Your Eyes be on that cd? I like them especially. If you’re still sending mp3s could you please send me some? Thanks so much! And I can’t wait for your piano music to come on itunes!

    I would pick the unnamed Finchcocks piece, the ballade waltz, and Crystallised Beauty. I also quite liked For Elena.

    Might I also put in a request for Close Your Eyes? I’ve been looking into buying my first ever ipod, and I would love to have Close Your Eyes on it. I absolutely love it; it’s a stress reliever, as I listen to it I can feel myself relaxing.
    Thank you so much for providing your wonderful music for us to listen to!
