ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
VAST is Thad's newest solo piano album, released in June of 2008. It is a mix of emotional impressions, and melodic movement. Thad's music is a blend of classical and contemporary sounds, created for relaxing and meditating. Music to soothe the soul, relax the mind, and reflect upon. VAST is a musical journey and expression of passion, emotion, and experiences, created to convey the blessings received from God's overwhelming love, mercy, and goodness.

Thad's music often combines a unique rhythmic sense (particularly his use of rubato), with melodic simplicity and counterpoint. The fusion often produces a particularly delicate sound in the melody and harmony, which are nevertheless emphasized by soft and interesting harmonic techniques.

Originally from Ottumwa Iowa, Thad currently lives in the Hannibal Missouri area. He is married, with three beautiful children. Thad has been writing and composing music from an early age, which is his focus and passion. He grew up listening and studying classical music, which typically resounds some way in his music. Thad studied piano, violin, guitar, and percussion throughout his school years, and is currently focused on the piano and digital instruments. In the near future He hopes to start working on other instrumental CD's with orchestration, and a vocal/instrumental project with his wife. Thad is also a dedicated and passionate youth pastor and worship leader.

Thad's original intention for composing music was for background music, or for times of meditation or relaxation, especially for his three young children. Thad's music is designed for a time of calm easy listening or for events where background music is needed. Thad’s music has been played all over the world, in daycares, spa’s, retail stores, and business offices, for art shows, dinner parties, banquets, and weddings.

From MainlyPiano
“Vast” is pianist/composer Thad Fiscella’s solo piano follow-up to his debut, “Grand Design,” and what a beautiful second album it is! Created with relaxation and meditation in mind, Fiscella’s music becomes a musical massage for the spirit without ever becoming simplistic or resorting to ear candy. A composer from a young age with a solid background in classical music, Fiscella blends a wealth of experience with deep emotion, creating a distinctive sound that is accessible to all yet complex enough for a more discerning ear.

“Vast” begins with “Adorn,” a sunny, upbeat piece with a gentle energy that sets the tone for the album. “Angel Kisses” is sweet and tender, overflowing with love. “Ivory Hymn” has a quiet, pensive grace that captivates as it soothes. “Gentle Whisper” is one of my favorites. A bit less structured than some of the pieces, it seems to flow from deep within - reflective yet comforting. “Evenscene” has a gentle motion underlying a soft-spoken melody - another beauty! “Opalescence” is more free-form, shimmering in the light as the title implies - graceful and elegant. “Child In My Arms” is my favorite on this album. A sense of joy mixed with the awe one feels while holding an innocent child comes through the tender notes of the music. I’m reminded of Debussy’s approach to playing the piano as though it has no hammers - Fiscella has that kind of velvet touch. My other favorite is the closing track, “When Leaves Fall.” Wistful and melancholy, this is a deeply emotional musical soliloquy where only heartfelt truths are spoken - stunning!

“Vast” could very well be on my Favorites list for 2009. I give it my highest recommendation for solo piano music for relaxation - it’s a beauty!

Even angels sit in awe as Thad humbly glorifies the Lord with his passion for music and intimately shares a part of his inner-self. You will be spiritually enchanted as Fiscella takes you on journey of pure wonder. Beautifully and meticulously crafted!

Equal to Grand Design! Very well done and delightful to listen to. Thad is a very talented and gifted pianist. Knowing that Thad desires to bring glory to the Lord, makes it all the more pleasurable to listen. I’m eager for number 3.
