ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A poet of popular music, November 1, 2005
Emile Pandolfi plays show tunes, movie music, and the Great American Song Book, like no one else. He even includes the occasional classical selection, which is inevitable, as he is a classically trained artist in the traditional sense. Pandolfi's dexterity at the keyboard is highly polished; yet one hardly notices. One does notice his gorgeous tone, which seemingly knows no depth; his pianissimo playing, which I can tell you, reaches all the way to the back of the hall; his massive fortissimos, which always leave the impression that he has more to give; his melting legato touch, which makes the piano sound like anything but a percussive instrument; and his seemingly limitless imagination.

Once you've heard Pandolfi's presentation of a song, it will be difficult for you to imagine it any other way. Partly, this results from his own imagination: he is able to listen to music and lyrics with such freshness, even to the punctuation of lyrics, that he understands what many of us pass over. Then, he brings the resources of his technique, his sound-all his musical training and experience-to bear on the story in his mind. But not just the story: the character of the story, the atmosphere of the story. The result is nothing short of a recreation of each song Emile Pandolfi plays, and that result is often very powerful.
John Pendley

About the Artist
Critics call Emile Pandolfi's music "luxurious arrangements with an ethereal quality;" that he plays in a "free-flowing, emotional manner that seems to go to the music's very soul." (Stereophile Magazine) While keeping the melody uppermost, this solo pianist applies his classical technique to Broadway and Popular Music alike, all in addition to his classical performance. This unique mixture of passion and elegance has resulted in making him one of the top selling artists in the alternative market.

Classically trained since the age of five, Pandolfi took a road-less-traveled by most serious artists and created his own inspiring arrangements of Popular Music. He began recording them in 1991, and has accumulated a catalog of 25 different albums and compilations.

Without a doubt, when you hear the music of Emile Pandolfi, you will experience the heart and soul of one of todays finest pianists.

My Foolish Heart
Emile Pandolfi's rendition of these songs are extraordinary and brilliant. His music brings you to greater heights and invites his listener to explore and enjoy every fragment of each piece. He is a marvel! God Bless Emile and thanks for sharing your heart and music to the world.

My Foolish Heart
Most music lovers would agree that the best ever ballads come from the 1920s-50s songbooks. Music of the great song writers like George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin and others of their period. Their love songs have become \"The Standards\".
Why then, is it so rare to find a concert pianist willing to apply classical arrangement to these wonderful melodies?
Emile pandolfi is such a rarity.

If you have one ounce of sentimentality or romance or appreciation of good music, you must explore Pandolfi\'s CDs.
\"My Foolish Heart\" CD is a good place to start. It has a generous sprinkling of those old standards. But whichever CD you choose, you will not be disappointed. Every track is even better than the samples suggest.

Try some track samples. Nice, gentle, but they don\'t tell the full story of his arrangements. They are only introductions.
Pandolfi follows a constant formula. First he establishes the theme in a simple, gentle style, as relaxing as a Beethoven sonata. Then, like a Rachmananov or Rubenstein, he raises emotions with his own concert platform arrangements of the ballad. Remarkably, his technique expands the concert variations without bruising a single note.
The result is pure romantic emotion. The composers would be very satisfied their songs have been treated with a proper level of respect.

A particular track you must find is \"An Affair to Remember\", from his CD with the same name. (I don\'t see it listed here)
You must buy, beg, borrow or steal that track. And have a box of tissues handy.
If you hear music like this, and you don\'t cry, you haven\'t got a soul.


Absolutely lovely brought back memories Bette M
