The consummate listening CD - none finer for this listener!
Virtually all CD albums have several pieces that you could easily skip. Not so with A Place in the Sun. Every song is a a lyrical beauty. The classical, introspective melodies are reminiscent of the passionate lyricism of some of the early etudes and symphonic pieces of Alexander Scriabin.

Very nice and relaxing.
The music is very relaxing for me and my students while they are working on computer assignments in the community college environment.
