Music as luminous and intimate as a Monet painting has become the standard from pianist Kevin Kern, whose CD,In the Enchanted Gardenhas become a cherished favorite in over 40 countries. Subtle colorings, including violin, cello and clarinet combine with gentle and eloquent piano songs to evoke a setting forSummer Daydreams. The CD contains the songsReturn to LoveandLe Jardin, both heard in the popular Korean drama,Autumn in My Heart (Gaeul Donghwa).
“Pianist Kevin Kern has released another gem! More classically-influenced than his previous two releases (or is it just all of the strings?), “Summer Daydreams” is soft, gentle, and sunny throughout. There are no rough or jagged edges, and a wistful, dreamy mood is sustained from start to finish – perfect for a lazy afternoon stretched out in a patch of sunshine or a cozy evening by the fireplace. The album features Kern on piano and synth, Jeremy Cohen on violin, Thalia Moore on cello, Luis Baez on clarinet, and Bob Ward on French horn. Most of the tracks are ensemble pieces with one or more of these artists, and the results are lovely. There are no pianistic pyrotechnics here, but there is an abundance of warmth and sincerity to soothe the mind and calm the spirit. Uncluttered and uncomplicated, this is sweet, straight-forward music for relaxing and enjoyment – a light-hearted antidote for the holiday craziness!” ~Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano
