Away Melancholy, away is an excellent example of Eric Harry's melodic mastery, his superb orchestrational skills and his sensitive pianistic skills. Eleven tracks of solo piano and string quartet. This is a must-have for your collection.
Beautiful piano recording and lush mastering by high-profile engineer Greg Kolchinsky.
Given Eric Harry's depth of experience professionally on a musical level, his orchestrations and piano virtuosity are virtual transcendants of his experiences this life versus his inner metaphysical lives centuries ago. "It's interesting" said Eric, "but of all the music I have written for commercials, the compositions that come extremely natural to me, are romantic, serious new classical styles that I'm writing now. I feel like there's someone else inside that writes for me, because it just seems to flow so easily".
Eric Harry's resume is like a who's who of great writers. He worked on some major Hollywood blockbusters like Universal's "The Border" starring Jack Nicholson with music by Ry Cooder (Buena Vista Social Club", also on Warner Brothers "Cutter's Way" starring Jeff Bridges with music by Oscar award-winning composer Jack Niztsche
