Pianoscapes for the Trails of North America
When I was a little girl, my parents had a piano that I enjoyed playing. I love the versatility that piano music has and that it can go from upbeat and lively to haunting and slow moving in the same song. It’s truly one of the most versatile instruments I know.

Pianoscapes for the Trails of North America is a collection of instrumental piano music that is based on trails located in the US and Canada. The piano is the obvious star of this CD, although there are other instruments that accompany including the violin, guitar, and cello. All of the work included is her original work except for the “Pachelbel for the Potomac” which was based on Pachelbel Canon.
Songs included on this CD are:
- Mountain Magic
- Sunrise on Cloud Palace
- Jumping Fish
- Pachelbel for the Potomac
- Voice from Sacred Wilderness
- The Kettle Moraine
- From Sea to Sapphire Sea
- Sunset on Cloud Palace
- Hope for the Trees
- Witches Slow Dance
The piano music included o this CD is truly haunting. That’s the only word I can find that’s close enough to how I feel when I listen to it. I can close my eyes and see the trees and hear the water in the brook as it splashes over the rocks in its way.
If you’re looking for a CD that will help you relax at the end of the day, this is it. It’s the ideal choice for background music to use during meditation or yoga or while journaling or even just relaxing at the end of the day with a cup of tea.
