Pianist, composer and recording artist, Brian Golden, is no newcomer to the solo piano scene. After having recorded two albums in 1987 and 1992, both of which received worldwide radio airplay and many favorable reviews from both the media and fans alike, Golden decided to focus his efforts on family and teaching.
During this time, however, Golden was not idle. He continued composing music, including his 24 Preludes for the Piano in Major and Minor Modes, music for film, working with choreographers and ballet teachers, as well as mentoring young composers and pianists. These endeavors led to composing four ballets for Boulder Ballet in Colorado, as well as his work with his wife, Christy, and their three albums of ballets for children. Their Fairy Light album received a Parents’ Choice award in 2015.
Now, after a gap of over twenty years, Golden has released a new album for solo piano. Blue Sky is a mix of ten beautifully crafted introspective themes and uplifting anthems written in eight different key signatures. Each of these classically influenced contemporary piano pieces are unique in style and layered with nuance and impactful sonorities. The pieces are both complex yet accessible, and will appeal to both the casual listener as well as those seeking for depth and lasting interest.
Blue Sky, as well as Golden's two previous albums - Portrait and Another Face, are available for download on this website and from I-Tunes, Amazon and CD Baby. Listen to Brian Golden Radio on Pandora and add him to your playlist on Spotify.
