The accompanying 20-page booklet is a thought-provoking read, touching on everything from the poetry of Petrarch and observations of Aristotle and Frank Lloyd Wright, to whimsical musings on French lifestyle.
When feelings just can't be put into words.
To enhance the peaceful, contemplative Unspoken experience, the booklet shares some of the performer’s personal thoughts about playing and listening to the pieces. In it, Finkelmeyer recalls the times in life when we just can’t find the right words to say what we’re thinking. “In those moments” says he, “music becomes a touchstone—a refuge, a consolation, or a place of supreme understanding and companionship.”
The recording, a pleasing combination of familiar masterworks by the likes of Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms and other classical giants, also includes works by Arvo Pärt, jazz legend Bill Evans, as well as Finkelmeyer’s own Concert Improvisations on “Danny Boy” and “Try to Remember”.
“If you yearn to be musically touched... Unspoken is your album!”
