ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Solo Piano Music by Swedish pianist Christian Lindquist. (a Whisperings.com artist) Soft, calm and airy. Quiet solo piano that is full of warmth and emotion. Influenced by Keith Jarrett and David Foster solo recordings.

Christian is the only Swedish pianist available on http://www.solopianoradio.com - a Whisperings artist.


Story behind:
Born in 1969 on the Ockero islands outside Gothenburg in the west coast of Sweden. His family has lived there for generations. There is proximity to open sea and a stunning nature.

From ”Solo Piano Diary” Album Cover:
I have always liked the sunrise, the freshness of an early morning. That has also become my time and very often I sit down and play my piano. I push record and play until the inspiration is out.

“Solo Piano Diary” is about my feelings, mood and my hunger for expression. Playing in a diary form is a quest for honesty, where suddenly the tone that was insipid yesterday is inspired today. The piano diary has become a way for me to verify my soul and to whittle truth out of my heart. The melodies are therefore a profound mix of pain and of peace.

I hope that my musical diary is a bearer of (e)motion which helps you as a listener to flow in the right direction…

//Christian

light and shadow
Please let me leave my comment here although my English words are not enough. I tried to listen to these beautiful works not only in my own room alone, but also driving in my car looking at the view out of windows. I realized and sensed at sudden that Christian are very closed to me and I was able to feel his kindness, tenderness and sorrow. Because he knows of these essences in our life so well, which is light in our life while shadow in our life.
Every note and every small sound fragment touch my heart. Thank you so much for sharing such a beautiful world and universe with me. And I am very glad to know you such a broad world.
I wish your more creative life in your sounds.

Beautiful piano music
With a gentle touch as a skillful painter Lindquist portrays the beauty of life with the music of his piano.


I can really recommend this soft and relaxing music as a fragrant complement to an evening diner or as a companion for you in your time of contemplation...

Absolutely love it
I play it at work to get som "help" to relax and not get stressed....And I play it for the kids just before bedtime to get them to slow down, and then I let it play when they are falling asleep. I am so happy I bought it!

Deeply Personal and Beautiful!
“Solo Piano Diary” is the debut release from Swedish pianist/composer Christian Lindquist, and what a beauty it is! Quiet, introspective, and deeply personal, the music is one man’s quest for self-discovery. In the spring of 2007, Lindquist started sitting at the piano before breakfast, playing “something,” and recording the results before heading off to work as the business developer for a global marine company. Most of the pieces are simply titled with the dates they were created, and many have been posted on Lindquist’s MySpace page as something of a musical “blog” or diary. He has never made any changes or edits to any of the music, which is astounding considering their cohesiveness, polish, and style. The twenty-five pieces are mostly short (1 1/2 - 3 1/2 minutes in length), but are perfect in their brevity, conveying all they need to say without a lot of frills or fanfare. Christian Lindquist is an artist whose music expresses almost as much with the spaces between the notes as the notes themselves. This is music to get lost in, hoping never to be found again!

There are no weak tracks on “Solo Piano Diary,” but I do have some favorites. It begins with “Five,” a gently flowing piece that exudes calm and contentment. “2007-Nov-04” is on the melancholy side, letting emotion create the music spontaneously, telling its story honestly and without inhibition. As the title implies, “myJoy” is warm and blissfully happy - musical sunshine. “2007-Dec-16” is very classical in style, elegant and direct. “Butterfly” is my favorite piece on the CD. Delicate, graceful, and serene, it’s absolutely gorgeous! “mySpirit” goes deep within and finds a place of peace and solace. “2007-Sep-01” is darker and more exploratory, with a quiet melody and some very effective use of the deep bass notes on the piano. “2007-Sep-11” also has a quiet voice, but seems a bit more optimistic. “LongTimeNoSee” has a movie theme quality, reflective and a little jazz-tinged. “BeWhoYouAre” is another strong favorite. Deeply emotional and uplifting, it’s a gentle pep-talk from a close friend. “2008-Mar-24” has a wonderful flow and soothing quality. The last Diary entry was “2008-Jun-06,” kind of a musical parting hug.

“Solo Piano Diary” could well be on my favorites list for 2008. It has been a phenomenal year for new music, and this is one of the best for quiet solo piano that is full of warmth and emotion. Not only has Christian Lindquist been able to discover more of his own inner world, but he will help many others to do so as well. Very highly recommended!

Meditation
Excellent cd with many opportunitys for slowing down and meditate and think. I have hes cd at work wich gives me valubile moments to take a breath and slow down. It´s also a very personal record and a great idea to just press "record" and play what comes in to your mind. That is a brave thing to do.
I can really recommend this cd and i hope for more :-)
