The RajMan Review
The latest release from Paz del Castillo features eleven solo piano tracks that reveal the artist to be a dynamic composer and performer and a master of taste and subtlety.

For Castillo, the title of the album conveys the idea that each tune on the album is like an individual drop of water that represents a different aspect of her life, mood, and/or personality. This is absolutely the case because the songs run the gamut of emotions and feelings, from inner peace and calm, to mystery and discovery, to wonder and awe.

The title is also apt in the sense that, although each number is unique and distinct, the album flows from one track to the next with a consistency and effortlessness that result in a unifying whole, like drops of water becoming a steady stream. Castillo’s dexterity and creativity engage the listener from beginning to end, making this a satisfying and enlightening experience.

This is another worthy offering that will be appreciated by aficionados of solo piano music.

SOLO PIANO MUSIC FROM PAZ DEL CASTILLO HAS A FRESH SOUND
Paz del Castillo has a strong background in classical music, but when you hear her own original music on her third album, Eleven Drops, it sounds unique, special, fresh and invigorating without obvious influences. She breathes new life into the old art-form of solo piano performance.

She is from Spain and has a Music Professor (teaching) degree and upper-level certificates. She also studied extensively in England and Austria, and has performed in those countries as well as at the International Music Festival in Wales. She won the Composition Award at the International Music Exchange Piano Composition, and is president of the European Piano Teachers Association. Longtime new age piano and keyboard star Suzanne Ciani was so taken by del Castillo’s playing that Ciani agreed to produce the Spaniard’s first album.

Eleven Drops shows this composer and pianist is becoming a major force is writing new piano music. These melodies are hauntingly-beautiful, well-thought-out, nicely-structured and exceedingly pleasant to listen to. Ok, sure, there are hints of classical stylings here. But a listener would not immediately say that one sounds like Debussy, or others like Mozart or Chopin. No, these are original works that stand on their own without a need for comparisons.

Del Castillo writes memorable melodies and explores them with several variations on the theme, and uses an active left hand to present entwining counter-melodies and other motifs juxtaposed against the original melody line. Del Castillo knows that the space between the notes is just as important as the notes themselves. The music creates a relaxing mood. But there is something else -- a warmth, a force, a feeling -- that subtly permeates the music just under the surface and gives it a little something extra.

This music will touch your soul. Listening to this recording is time well spent.

Suzanne

An Evolution
I have a great respect for Paz del Castillo- for her compositional integrity and her strong pianistic abilities.
Her music is earthy, grounding, deep. Despite her years of piano study, she prefers to enchant rather than to dazzle. I wish her great success with this new release and hope to hear many more. Brava Paz.
