Review except from Music and Media Focus


Sitting down with the CD and reading over the decidedly poetic song names was indeed intriguing and piqued my curiosity as to what the music would be like that interpreted such evocative titles. Knowing that the music was related to specific poems added another dimension to the listening experience and gave context to the project. The album begins with “The Whisper Of The Meaning” – with its gentle melody falling softly on the ears like a whisper, and hinting of deeper understanding to come in the music’s unfolding. One of the most compelling titles belongs to track two, “The Constantly Pulsing Universe Inside Me.” There is a definite sense of constancy in the music as rolling arpeggios sustain throughout its entirety providing a feeling of animation and evolution. I particularly enjoyed a track entitled “Each Flower Will Sing Your Song” which reflected Rebecca’s dynamic sensibilities, opening with a light bucolic air and growing more melodically fragrant as it began to bloom. And speaking of dynamics, the album as a whole has its yin and yang. A song called “The Place Where Dreams Shine And Fade,” exudes an airy lightness of being, while a more introspective and almost wistful feeling is reflected in the composition “To Solace My Heart.”

"Whereas" is a solo piano concept album of thirteen original songs that seamlessly integrate evocative, intriguing classical writing with the accessible, timeless appeal of new age music. I would imagine that fans of solo piano artists like David Lanz, Liz Story, or George Winston would enjoy the music of Rebecca Oswald as well.
