ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
2-CD set:

New compositions by Nylon String Guitar composer Tom Salvatori (Chicago IL) and Grand Piano composer Iris Litchfield (Bromley, UK).

CD1: Guitar and Piano in Ensemble
Chamber String Arrangements by John Catchings

Subtitled: These little pieces went to Nashville - CD1 features our new Nylon String Guitar and Grand Piano works accompanied by full-on Chamber String Ensemble arrangements warmly and tenderly created by John Catchings and featuring real chamber players in Nashville TN.

CD2: Solo Guitar and Solo Piano Pieces

Subtitled: These little pieces stayed home - CD2 presents the same compositions as featured on CD1 but captured in their more minimal original solo performance - accompanied by nothing other than a composer's desire to share each piece as originally conceived - hoping you'll find them as engaging and welcome as a visit with an old friend.

We are in a time when a lot of other artists out there seem to be taking shortcuts, cutting back on production, and using synth or sample pads for strings and squeezing their releases into compressed mp3s as the flavor of the day.

Contrary to that approach, we've held steadfast to our belief that only the employ of real professional musicians using real instruments will truly breathe life into a body of work that will best stand the test of time and bear repeated listening.

We hope you'll agree. Quietly enjoy.

- Tom Salvatori and Iris Litchfield, August, 2010.

From MainlyPiano
"Ever Ever On" is the anxiously-awaited new album from Tom Salvatori and Iris Litchfield, following their award-winning 2007 release "When Evening Falls." This new release is a 2-CD set with one disc featuring solo versions of each of the twelve pieces and the other featuring ensemble versions of the same twelve songs. The ensemble CD is not just a re-recording with someone playing keyboard instrumentation - these are live chamber musicians playing additional parts lovingly created by John Catchings in Nashville. The sound quality is stellar! The CDs alternate between piano pieces composed by Iris Litchfield, a classically-trained pianist and retired math teacher from England, and acoustic guitar pieces by Tom Salvatori, a classically-trained American guitarist. John Catchings appears with his soulful cello on all of the ensemble tracks. The rest of the chamber group includes violins and viola, bass, oboe, and French horn. The music itself is classically-styled with a contemporary attitude - gorgeous and heartfelt. It is difficult to choose which CD I like best. I love the simplicity of the gentle tunes played solo, but the additional musicians on the ensemble CD create so much depth and color that I love that one, too. The good news here is that no one needs to choose a favorite and the only decision to be made is which one to slip into the CD player first! Lucky us!

"Ever Ever On" begins with Ms. Litchfield’s “You’re With Me Still,” a tender love song that is haunting as a piano solo and becomes achingly beautiful with the addition of cello. What a way to start! Next up is Salvatori’s elegant and mysterious “Ghosts of Levigliani,” arranged for nylon string guitar and string quartet. “Escher’s Lullaby” is a fascinating trio for guitar, cello, and oboe - an unusual combination that really works with each instrument’s unique voice. I love both versions of “Blue Horizon” - solo piano and piano with string quintet - graceful, melancholy, and full of longing. “Whirlpool Song” returns to the guitar/cello/oboe trio - enchanting and soulful! “Dark Round” is a lovely slow, somber duet for cello and guitar. “To You With Love” is another favorite, this time a trio for piano, cello, and bass. Tender and gentle yet passionate, it soars while touching the heart. The closing track is the dark and mysterious “Folk Dance” for guitar, violin, cello, and bass. It is a slow and serious dance with a distinct Renaissance flavor. A gorgeous ending to an outstanding album!

"Ever Ever On" is certain to be on my Favorites list for the year! Give your ears and your mind a real treat and check this one out! I give it my highest recommendation!

Classical Music with Exquisite and Elegant Style
You’re in for a wonderful treat as the extremely talented artists, Tom Salvatori & Iris Litchfield, release their newest album, “Ever Ever On.” Salvatori, who plays the nylon string guitar, and Litchfield, who plays the grand piano, entice the listeners with their intense precision and magical melodies. The 1st CD contains songs scored for not only the guitar and piano but also an entire Chamber string ensemble with oboe and French horn. The 2nd CD is the same brilliant songs performed with their superb talents on either solo guitar or solo piano. “Cascade,” is a song that is dreamy and delicate as the stirring piano glides across the keys with luxurious style and grace. “Dark Round,” is a song that is somber in tonality as the guitar takes the delicate melody and plays with a serene passionate form. Another song, “Windmills of Time,” is bright and crisp as the sweet and tender strings surround the velvety piano in a moving and melodic fashion. If you’re a person who truly appreciates classical music with exquisite and elegant style, then the magnificent album, “Ever Ever On” is one you will thoroughly enjoy.
