ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
During my travels throughout Asia, I had the opportunity to experience the unique and different cultures of the Orient. As a musician, I was especially fascinated by the creative styles of music from that part of the world; in particular, the popular Chinese songs. While I could not understand the language in which the songs were sung, I could appreciate the beautiful melodies, which even today, I find to be quite exotic and enchanting.

I have incorporated in this album, my knowledge of western music with the emotions experienced during those unforgettable years of living in the Far East. All of these musical selections, conceived during my stay in Asia, embrace the essence of the Oriental spirit, yet are subtly balanced by my western classical training.

In this album, CHINA LOVE, I have captured the romance, sentiment, mystery, and excitement of the Orient.

Robert Van Horne is an experienced and talented pianist and composer who delights audiences with his friendly personality and his extensive repertoire of music. A list of selections include his unique compositions, traditional classical works and current and favorite popular tunes many of which he has updated with creative arrangements. His greatest asset is his natural ability to entertain audiences with a mixture of relaxing, romantic, and upbeat music.

Robert studied classical music at the Philadelphia Musical Academy, graduating with double degrees in piano and education. He continued his musical training by concentrating on popular and jazz styles with extensive study in composing and improvisation. One of the most influential teachers during his musical instructions is the well-known jazz pianist/composer George Shearing.

From 1982 to 1985, Robert had the opportunity of performing as a pianist on the S.S. NORWAY and the M.S. PEARL OF SCANDINAVIA cruise ships.

During the years that followed, while living in Singapore, he recorded many of the popular Chinese songs for EMI Records.

In 1998, Warner Brothers Publications published his CHINA LOVE compositions in a piano book available worldwide.

Robert has performed on TV and radio, as well as in concerts for audiences both in the U.S. and Asia.

Today, he regularly performs benefit concerts for charities with his unique style of bringing humor and fun to his audiences as well as encouraging their participation during the program.

Robert's goal is to bring his musical personality and talent to worldwide audiences who enjoy listening to familiar and original music.
