ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Marc Enfroy interweaves beautiful instrumental piano music with touching orchestral arrangements to create emotionally charged themes like those heard in dramatic film scenes. Primarily a self taught composer, he says of his music, "I like solo piano and I like film music so I decided to marry the two in a style I call Cinematic Piano."

Enfroy's debut CD, Unbounded, is receiving high praise.

"Calling his music 'cinematic piano,' it is visual, emotional, and colorful...What he has created for this album is astonishing in its passion, deep emotions, and depiction of life's various ups and downs. The music is orchestrated for piano and strings as well as other instruments, and the sound is full and rich...'Unbounded' is a most impressive debut! I highly recommend this one!"

-- Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano.com

"The combination of piano melodies and orchestral arrangements are perfect for movies – but it can also be the soundtrack of your life. Prepare to be moved..."

-- BT Fasmer, NewAgeMusic.nu

"...one of the best projects we have received this year."

-- Jon Nipp, Spirit Within Radio

Unbounded
I was literally taken away by Marc Enfroy's Unbounded! This beautiful work of art totally delivers, taking the listener to the "deepest valley of the heart...Unbounded." There is no place the heart cannot go, and Marc Enfroy takes us on a beautiful thrill ride in Unbounded. My favorite song, On to Forever, reminds us that we begin again every day, and more - it lifts the heart to meet that concept. Every song in this album is unique and deeply passionate, bringing the grateful listener along into the experience of exploring the depth of their own heart, giving us a glimpse of who we truly are! Magnificent!

An Impressive Debut!
“Unbounded” is the debut release from Marc Enfroy. Calling his music “cinematic piano,” it is visual, emotional, and colorful, but the pieces are shorter (3-4 1/2 minutes) and more varied than most soundtrack music. Enfroy began composing music seriously in 2006 as a tribute to his sister, who had lost her battle with skin cancer. Seeing the legacy she left the family with her artwork, Enfroy sought to do the same with his music. Mostly self-taught as a composer, Enfroy has been involved with music most of his life. What he has created for this album is astonishing in its passion, deep emotions, and depiction of life’s various ups and downs. The music is orchestrated for piano and strings as well as other instruments, and the sound is full and rich. Marc Enfroy says of the music, “Imagine Jim Brickman, 2002 and Tim Janis all rolled into one and you’ll get an idea of the voyage that awaits you on this CD.” I agree.

“Unbounded” begins with “Night On the Seine,” a love song for piano, woodwinds, and strings that exudes calm contentment - a lovely start! The title track is passionate and full of longing and graceful movement. “Mare Nostrum” is darker and more mysterious - and one of my favorites. (The title is Latin for “Our Sea” and was the Roman name for the Mediterranean Sea.) The gently rolling rhythm and “bigness” of the music convey feelings of both tranquility and power - an intriguing combination. “Taken Away” is my favorite track on this album. Poignant to the point of heartbreak at profound loss and deep emotional pain, this is an incredibly powerful piece as well as an incredibly beautiful one. “Memories In the Sand:” is much lighter, but still tugs at the heartstrings with its nostalgic visions of a more innocent time. “Forbidden Island” paints a musical picture of loveliness and grace tinged with desire. “On To Forever” is a gorgeous ballad that creates feelings of floating on a cloud or drifting along in a small boat on peaceful water - trouble-free. “Solitary Journey” once again goes darker and deeper. Tinged with loss and loneliness, it isn’t without hope. “Moonlit Dreams” swings the mood all the way back up to peaceful contentment - a cozy piece to wrap yourself in as you let go of all cares and worries.

“Unbounded” is a most impressive debut! I highly recommend this one!

Bought this album for family all ages. They all loved it - even the 9 year old granddaughter...but especially my husband who play classical piano!
BUY IT!

A Peaceful Transformation
I'm extremely impressed with the musical artistry of Marc Enfroy. I've gotten into the habit of only listening to CD's as I'm driving in the car because everything on the radio is 99% irritating. Marc's music places you in peaceful surroundings where you are able to have the quality of life that you were meant to have while driving. While I'm listening to this wonderful music, I'm able to enjoy the beauty of the country side more. I have to say that Marc Enfr should be listed amoung to music masters that are extremely rare in today's society, such as Nelson Riddle, Percy Faith, Robert Farnon, Les Baxter, Leroy Anderson, Andre Kostelanetz and David Rose, just to mention a few that are long gone. There are heavenly sounds that infuse the heart with Marc's music. I hope to hear more of it.

La banda sonora de cada pensamiento y/o emoción que invade al oyente!.
Unbounded es el debut del compositor y pianista Marc Enfroy. Un álbum mágico, donde el piano es el principal protagonista, acompañado por un fondo de dulces instrumentos que incrementan las emociones que ofrece cada una de las doce piezas que componen este fantástico trabajo. Marc añade banda sonora a cada pensamiento y/o emoción que invade al oyente; melodías idóneas para momentos únicos. Un beso, un abrazo, una despedida, una mirada... son esos momentos a los que Marc hace referencia.


"Night on the Seine" es cautivadora, serena. Un piano reproduce una tranquila melodía e instrumentos de cuerda y viento le acompañan de fondo, aportándole un toque apacible al tema. Una pieza contemplativa, donde las aguas del Sena se unen con el oscuro cielo, dejando ver, a su paso, el reflejo de las estrellas y la luna. Bellísima!.

"Unbounded" es el tema que da nombre al álbum. Una melodía esperanzadora que invita a soñar un mundo donde no existen las fronteras, o en este caso, límites. Un comienzo nostálgico, reproducido por las notas altas del piano son la introducción perfecta para que un instrumento de cuerda, en este caso un chelo, de paso a una asombrosa melodía donde el piano y las cuerdas se unen, dando vida a una maravillosa pieza. Hermoso tema!.

"The Summit" simplemente entrañable. El piano consigue asombrar al oyente desde el comienzo. Una intensa melodía reproducida por instrumentos de cuerda se hace protagonista y el piano pasa a segundo plano. Una orquesta maravillosa es el auge y la culminación de este prodigioso tema.

"Empire Bluff" comienza melancólica. Un instrumento de viento sirve de base al piano que reproduce una triste melodía, y este a su vez, abre paso a un sintetizador que es el acompañamiento perfecto, creando el entorno abatido y de decepción que caracteriza a esta pieza.

"Mare Nostrum", es la pieza más extensa del álbum, casi cuatro minutos y medio. Un tema inspirado en el Mar que antaño tuvo ese mismo nombre, el Mar Mediterráneo. Un sutil piano da paso a una dulce melodía creada por un violín, a la que posteriormente, se le unen más instrumentos. Una sintonía perfecta que deja volar a la imaginación, aportando paz y calma al oyente. Nostálgica pieza!.

"Kalliope's Courtyard" posee un ritmo lento que invita a bailar; un hermoso toque de vals marcado por las manos del artista al piano crean la romántica melodía. Una pieza perfecta para la contemplación y disfrute de las vistas que se abren ante los ojos del oyente en un paseo, donde los colores y olores forman parte de la melodía. Cautivadora!.

"Taken Away" es quizás la pieza más emocionante y poderosa de este trabajo. Un arpegio de notas bajas junto a un toque furtivo de notas altas crean un comienzo desconcertante que va cogiendo fuerza. Una pieza emocionante, llena de coraje, donde el piano asombra con el toque repetido de acordes en su cenit, aportando un gran ímpetu al tema que se acrecienta cuando se une a este una orquesta de sorprendente sentimiento. Una pieza que deja al oyente boquiabierto. Simplemente prodigiosa!.

"Memories in the Sand" es posiblemente la pieza más romántica del álbum. El piano es simplemente bello, sensible. Una orquesta acompaña de fondo la melodía del piano que, en ocasiones, le aporta fuerza y sentimiento al tema. Pasional pieza!.

"Forbidden Island" comienza con el relajante sonido de las olas, cuando un delicado canto abre paso al piano. Un arpegio de acordes tocados por la mano izquierda acompañan a la melodía reproducida por la diestra. La base orquestal es maravillosa, las cuerdas y la voz femenina que aparece ocasionalmente, transmiten el sentimiento nostálgico que caracteriza a esta pieza.

"On to Forever" es esperanzadora, soñadora; un piano y un instrumento de viento unen sus melodías para dar paso a un cenit hermoso y pegadizo, donde el principal protagonista es el piano. Los instrumentos de cuerdas no son tan frecuentes como en los temas anteriores, pero cuando aparecen, dan una fuerza asombrosa al tema. Una pieza perfecta para cerrar los ojos y soñar!.

"Solitary Journey". Las tristes notas de un piano y un tenue sonido de cuerdas son el comienzo de este melancólico tema. Aquejada pieza, banda sonora de la triste soledad que acompaña al viajero en su largo trayecto.

"Moonlit Dreams" posee un delicado piano, que acompañado de cuerdas y sintetizador dan un bello toque relajante a la pieza, colmado de paz. Un tema perfecto para finalizar este hermoso viaje. Sorprendente!.


Unbounded sumerge al oyente en una historia, donde cada pieza que compone este trabajo es la banda sonora de cada momento. Composición de acertadas melodías que crean ambientes ideales en la mente del oyente dibujando mágicos momentos. Un álbum simplemente sorprendente, muy muy recomendado.

Leaves you breathless for more
Marc Enfroy understands human emotions. This is clear from the first notes. The music ranges from the playful dance in Kalliope\'s Courtyard to the haunting nostalgia of Taken Away.

Each piece is crafted by a fine artist\'s hand, telling a story, sharing emotions and taking the listener on a soaring ride through time and space.

The entire album is something I\'ve been looking for. I kept listening, waiting for something I did not absolutely love - it never came. Each piece weaves beautiful piano melodies with exceptional orchestration to carry the listener into Marc\'s musical world.

More, more, give me more!

Michael

Unbelievably Beautiful!
All I can say is . . . BUY THIS ALBUM! This is the most gorgeous music I\'ve ever heard! Really! The feelings it projects are so deep and wonderful. Listening to \"The Summit\" is an incredibly inspiring experience, as is the title track \"Unbounded.\" The intimacy of \"Night on the Seine\" perfectly captures that \"falling in love\" feeling. There\'s melancholy, joy, romance, and bliss on every track. Listen to this album and renew your belief in everything that\'s good about life!
