Music Review by Dyan Garris for New Age CD

11 tracks
Total time: 50:01

Shoshana Michel is an accomplished pianist and composer, evidenced quite nicely on her third solo piano album, Prelude to a Dream. Skillfully recorded, mixed, and mastered by Joe Bongiorno at Piano Haven Studios in Sedona, AZ, the music throughout Prelude to a Dream is fluid, light, and reminiscent of a gentle lullaby that calms the soul at a very deep level. Eloquently composed and executed, the compositions are sweet and gentle. There’s an innocence and yet a deeper wisdom that shines through at the same time.

Track 1, “Wonders” is a perfectly delightful opening to the album. Whimsical and nicely structured, Shoshana’s classical training comes to the forefront. The title track, “Prelude to a Dream,” has a dreamy quality about it as expected, again beautifully showcasing her classical background. It’s melodic, well played, and very well composed.

“A Walk in the Rain,” track 3 is a particular favorite. Soft and gentle as a summer rain, we are successfully transported to exactly where we need to be. Another favorite is track 5, “Tender Words.” It’s beautiful, romantic, and expansive with the warm emotion bubbling up through to the top like a finely baked cherry pie.

Track 10, “Silent Farewell,” is a little melancholy, introspective, and moody, giving even more depth to the album. “Ethereal,” the last track on Prelude to a Dream, has an otherworldly quality and feels haunting and familiar, making a very effective ending to the entire album, which sticks with you long after it’s done.

For lovers of solo piano, this one is a must have. Simply charming through and through.
