Peaceful Piano Moods (4CD)

Immerse yourself in the most peaceful piano music from a range of genres.
Each CD is themed around a specific time of day – morning, afternoon, evening, night
A 100-track 4-CD set features over 5 hours of calming piano pieces.
All the colours of the piano: the concert grand of course, solo piano, piano duets and piano four-hands, and the upright felted piano.


New remastering takes the listener seamlessly through a blend of core classical works, post-classical/contemporary piano pieces and sublime arrangements of music from film and providing a continuous listening experience, dissolving genres moving you seamlessly (and unorthodoxly!), from Albéniz to Benny Andersson, via Yiruma, and back out through Chopin to Secret Garden and Luke Howard.


Includes a brand new track recorded specially for this compilation by Chad Lawson and six new tracks from rising star Van-Anh Nguyen.


Featuring over 50 outstanding soloists from Deutsche Grammophon, Decca Classics, Mercury KX and Universal Music Australia: a literal A–Z of artists from Martha Argerich to Lilya Zilberstein.


Artists include: Martha Argerich, Andrei Gavrilov, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Lang Lang, Van-Anh Nguyen, Víkingur Ólafsson, Alice Sara Ott, Maria João Pires, Mikhail Pletnev, Tamás Vásáry, Anatol Ugorski, Yuja Wang, and many more, including contemporary composers performing their own works, such as: Joep Beving, Ludovico Einaudi, Lambert, Chad Lawson, and Stephan Moccio.
