Solo piano album for Britain's Dave Bainbridge

THE MULTI-instrumentalist with Celtic favourites Iona, Dave Bainbridge, has recorded a solo album. 'The Remembering' is described as "an evocative and atmospheric first collection of solo piano improvisations." Said Bainbridge, "Ever since studying music, art and art history as teenager I've been fascinated by the French Impressionist movement, both in art and music. The idea of capturing a fleeting scene, a brief moment in time, or a feeling evoked by a place or a person, has resonated with me throughout my musical life. Most people can link powerful memories to a certain piece of music, a picture, an aroma. Even when my mam was unable to remember words or people's names as Alzheimer's took hold, she was still able to remember how to play tunes on her accordion. In a sense, all the pieces on this album are impressions, a brief moment in time interpreted through the medium of music." CR
