ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rick Sowash (b. 1950)
Unlike most composers, Rick Sowash has not sought an academic or commercial career in music. Following the example of Charles Ives, Sowash has retained his art as a passionate avocation, earning his living in non-musical ways. He is the author of three books about the history and folklore of Ohio, his native state. He has also been a politician, arts administrator, radio broadcaster and innkeeper. He is a member of ASCAP, both as a composer and as a publisher. His books, scores and CDs are published by the Rick Sowash Publishing Company. For more information, go to: www.sowash.com

Rod Ellem

Wonderful, tuneful music to please all.
This is an album full of attractive and genuinly good music. Although he is not a household name, Rick's music is music that appeals to the masses, as it were. Every work on this disc, all performed by excellent musicians, is enjoyable without being "slight" or "sugary". It is substantial music (listen to his piano trio Eroica - which is as substantial as trios written by better known composers). If you enjoy great music, you will enjoy this album. Also listen to his "Sanctuary at 3am" also available through CD Baby.

Sunny Days Eroica
Sunny Days is a perfect title for this music. It is gentle yet extraverted and wonderfully melodic. I have listened to it many times and it holds up. It made me want to commission Sowash to write a piece for violin and piano.
