CD Review: The Persistence of Dreaming
Jeremy Woolhouse: Independent Label
Pianist and composer Jeremy Woolhouse presents a suite of solo piano works evoking a diverse range of emotions. His performance is impeccable and the quality of the recording is excellent. The twelve tunes were written within a twelve month period and recorded at Baker Street Studios, Melbourne in December 2011 and June 2012.
The music takes the listener through a range of moods, 'from gentle to fierce, reflective to animated, driving to relaxed' and gets more enjoyable with repeated playing.
The CD will be launched at Montsalvat, Eltham, on Friday March 15, from 8pm. There will also be concerts at Baker Street Studio, Melbourne, on Friday March 22nd, from 7.30 and at Richmond Uniting Church, Melbourne, on Sunday March 24 from 1.30pm.
