Ekklesia (Toccata for Piano and Orchestra)
Ekklesia (Toccata for Piano and Orchestra) What can I say. If there is such a style as NEO progressive-romanticism in classical music you've captured it. Once again you surpassed my every expectation. It was an almost surreal experience seeing you lead and play with the string players section at the recording session. It is a very nice piece of music with a thematic development reminiscent of perhaps Rachmaninoff's Piano Concertos. It has the darkness and angst of Shostakovich, the lightness and comical touches of Chopin and the complex density of a good Liszt piece. I am so impressed and despite knowing it is a very difficult process to go through, I hope you will create and record more. I HIGHLY recommend this music to any fan of classical music.

You'll want to hear this over and over...
Mike, Ekklesia is superb. After the third listen it finally dawned on me that you're actually a classical composer trapped in a rocker's body! Your latest is for me a natural extension of the compositions from Asylum 9, minus the tension and horror, though you managed to insert a nice bit of psychotica in the middle anyway. You don't hear that in the classical field very often! And your trademark lush melodies are reminiscent of the Romantic composers. It's a nice contrast to the modern textures. Like most of your work, your themes are compact and play off each other effectively. I like that it's not dark or heavy, though you tease us with it in spots throughout the seven minutes. It's just a great, enjoyable piece of music.
