REVIEWS NEW AGE

Fly es dueño de las mejores melodías!.
Fly es el octavo lanzamiento del compositor y pianista canadiense Eric Harry, un álbum cuyas notas sobrepasan los horizontes de la imaginación, notas que se unen para formar un cántico a la inocencia. Acompañado por el cuarteto de cuerdas de Toronto, Eric les da protagonismo para acentuar con bastante acierto la pasión y el sentimiento de cada composición. Un enfoque musical perfecto para el significado de las expresiones ilusión y cariño; acordes ideales que crean momentos de un grandísimo y dulce sosiego.


El álbum comienza con "I Am The Sea", donde un toque continuado y pacífico de notas bajas acompañan a la apacible melodía de la diestra. Las cuerdas tienen un papel elemental en esta composición, generando un fondo musical realmente emotivo. Esta pieza es una de mis preferidas. Deliciosa!.

"My Secret Muse" mantiene el mismo carácter dulce que la pista anterior. En este caso, el piano da vida a una melodía entrañable que bien podría pasar por una canción de cuna. Seguida por lo expresivos acordes de las cuerdas, la música se aferra con fuerza en el alma. Qué frágil belleza!.

El tema más extenso del álbum, casi siete minutos, lleva el título "Dance For Little Muse". Una composición de carácter alegre, pero nada rápida, que conserva la sensibilidad con una fuerza increíble.

Consejera y reservada es la melodía de "Are You Listening". Una obra conmovedora que acopla dos melodías poderosas emocionalmente, la melodía del piano y la de las cuerdas. Un tema realmente agradable que calará hondo gracias a esta combinación notas. Otra de mis favoritas!.

"Skipping Stones" es la pieza más ambient de todo el CD. Un repique continuado de notas altas y bajas de piano son acompañadas por sonidos sintetizados, una unión musical de gran poder hipnótico y sedante. Me gusta!.

El tema que da título al álbum es sencillamente bellísimo. "Fly" posee una de esas melodías que sonarán una y otra vez en la mente, un claro ejemplo del fino tacto que Eric posee en la creación de estupendas músicas. Una composición realmente hermosa, con acordes profundos y emocionantes.

"Surrounded By Sunflowers" es puro deleite. La pasión que el pianista irradia frente al piano es alucinante. Una pieza cuyas notas acarician con suavidad un delicado Blues y las cuerdas aportan el justo toque de emoción que es necesario. Otra de mis preferidas!. Wow!.

"Cloudless" comienza con el rasgueo de las cuerdas del piano. Una pieza minimalista y cuya sencillez desbordante es suficiente para atrapar con fuerza al oyente. Para este tema, Harry prescinde por completo de las cuerdas y apuesta por sutiles toques de acordes de piano.

"A Girl Named Alice" es otra de esas piezas que no dejarán indiferente al oyente. Gracias a su enternecedora y afectuosa melodía, radiante y llena de luz, esta linda composición logra dibujar una amplia sonrisa. Me encanta!.

"Next Time Can I Dance With You" es un sorprendente solo de piano, íntimo y emotivo que parece ser dirigido con gran sentimiento a una persona amada. Un final extraordinario para este álbum, una obra maestra.


Fly es dueño de las mejores melodías, aquellas que sorprenden con sólo escuchar una sola vez. La riqueza que Eric Harry deja en cada composición es increíble. Las diez piezas de este CD cautivarán con fuerza al oyente, no habiendo una sola que pase desapercibida para este. Fly es un trabajo muy altamente recomendable!.

From MainlyPiano
It seems that many artists who put out a large body of work in a short period of time tend to repeat themselves and often need to edit with a more critical ear. This is certainly not the case with Eric Harry, who has composed and released eight albums since he became a solo artist two years ago. The ten original tracks on "Fly" are a combination of new age and new classical music for piano (Eric Harry) and string quartet (The Toronto String Quartet), and while the music is quiet and soothing, some of the pieces are a bit more upbeat than "The Language of Flowers" and "Away Melancholy, Away," demonstrating Harry’s versatility.

"Fly" begins with “I Am the Sea,” a gorgeous piece with the piano creating a gentle, rocking rhythm and an elegant melody while the strings (mostly cello) add a smooth flowing quality. Pure peace and tranquility! “My Secret Muse” is lighter and more carefree, although the strings keep it grounded. “Dance For Little Feet” has a Celtic tinge with Harry’s fingers doing a happy dance around the piano keyboard while the strings give a cinematic sweep. A piano solo later in the piece suggests that the dancer is gradually slowing down, catching a second wind near the end and picking up the tempo and strings once more - utterly charming! “Skipping Stones” is fascinating. Harry uses tremolo on the piano to convey stones skipping on water and the droplets of dancing water that go along with them. It is not as melodic as some of the pieces, but it paints a wonderfully vivid picture of the simple joy this activity brings. The title track is a piece Harry wrote while he was in college. A bit more ambient, the piano describes the effortless freedom of flight while the strings make the piece soar. Love it! “Surrounded By Sunflowers” has a bluesy gospel feeling that stands out from the rest of the tracks without feeling out of place. Fun! “Cloudless” begins with Harry plucking the strings of the piano - an edgier sound than pizzicato on one of the stringed instruments. One of two piano solos on the CD, it leaves me wanting to hear more of just the piano. “Next Time Can I Dance With You,” the other solo, is a charming, heartfelt way to close this excellent album. Soft-spoken and sincere, its innocence goes deep. More, Eric, more!

"Fly" is excellent from the sweet cover artwork of a little boy with his arms in the air, ready to fly, to the closing piano chords. Highly recommended!
