Relaxing new modern classical piano music, composed and performed by Grammy Winning and Billboard Top Ten recording artist, Laura Sullivan.
Piano (Laura Sullivan) combined with cello (Wojtek Slawinski), violin (Gabriele Schiavi) and other ambient sounds are perfect instrumental music for soothing and calming activities like yoga, spa and meditation and ideal for studying, dinner, background music, romantic moments, and any time when peace and tranquility are desired.
Books and relaxing music go hand in hand for me - there is nothing more relaxing to me than to curl up with a good book and having soothing music in the background. I was beyond excited when I learned that Laura Sullivan was releasing her new CD, The Modern Romantic: New Relaxing Classical Piano Music. Her music is hauntingly beautiful and it always brings a sense of peace to any environment I have it playing in.
After listening to her latest release, The Modern Romantic: New Relaxing Classical Piano Music, I have to say that Laura Sullivan has outdone herself once again. Every exquisite song on this album is a creative masterpiece that transports the listener to a relaxing state of mind. It is the perfect choice for background music while you work, read, or just to listen to on a crazy commute. It is difficult for me to like every song an artist has on one album, but I can honestly say that I loved each and every piece included by this talented artist. If you enjoy relaxing, soothing, and beautiful piano music, with a small mix of other instruments, then this is one collection that you will not want to miss out on.
