Piano music can have a very personal touch. The piano allows a composer or performer to all alone manifest a full vision of what their music can be. The piano is a very good tool for thinking. David Garland follows up "Pianissimo," a popular previous edition of Spinning On Air, with another hour of lyrical, soulful, playful piano music, featuring recordings by Chilly Gonzales, Duke Ellington, Vassilis Tsabropoulos, Kyle Gann, Antony and Björk, and others. This show first aired on September 9, 2012.

Hi! It won't let me comment on this week's show (21 Apr); I just wanted to say how thrilled I was to hear the old "Spinning on Air" theme played at the top of the hour. More often, please. Can Hawaiian war chants be far behind? :D
