"Classically Inspired" - a delightfully relaxing and romantically-styled collection of established, emerging and popular 'Classical' melodies with Jon's inimitably 'Velvet Piano' touch. Solo and orchestrally-accompanied renditions mix to engage, entertain and draw in the listener with creamy arpeggiations, rolling rallentandos and pianistic bon-mots decorate this two-disc set. Six tunes (among the twenty-five offered here) are from Jon's own compositional imagination - all of which are also available in simplified sheet-music form by writing to Jon via the 'contact' facility provided here on the web-site.
Whether on a long car drive or a rainy Sunday afternoon; a Spring evening or the height of mid-Summer, the contents of these two discs will instantly and comfortably nestle among your 'most favorite' collections of timeless music ... music you'll want to share with friends, family and acquaintances alike.
