I had the pleasure of getting to know Antonia in the autumn of 2008. Our paths’ crossing was perfect timing and it was clear from the outset we were destined to meet and work together. I had been creating a photographic slideshow of images from the Lofoten Islands in Norway and she was in the throws of recording her first album “A Secret Vision.” I was so blown away by the serenity of her soft sound piano music and became immediately aware that my images had been waiting for her wonderful music in order to finish my project. We forged a bond between us and we’ve been creating together ever since. I am privileged to work with such a talented artist who is an incredibly beautiful human being with a vibrant energy and a thirst for life.
In her second album, “In My Soul” she shares with us her most recent compositions. Her music is growing as she is blossoming into the fine composer and pianist she was born to be. When I listen to her pieces on this album I am enchanted by the magic in her melodies and carried away to a world that only I know deep inside myself and I am inspired to remember stories I had once forgotten and dream fantasies that wait in my tomorrows.
Whether you are full of joy or somehow touched by sadness, when you listen to this fine collection of unique compositions they will surely touch you deep in your heart. Feel the passion in her playing, surrender to the magic that you hear and feel at one with life. Antonia’s music echoes all our stories and I know she has definitely graced my soul.
