New Release! Landscapes of the Heart

Very excited about this latest release of original meditative piano music (except for two beautiful light classical pieces by Erik Satie). This Cd was recorded at the famous Imaginary Road Studio in Windham County, Vermont. The producer is Will Ackerman who was the founder of Windham Hill Records, a Grammy award winning guitarist, and producer of several other Grammy award winning artists and gold records. Several of the tracks feature one other instrument played by some of the top artists in the country.

“I own over 1,000 classical music discs that I listen when I read or simply want to enjoy music. Until I acquired Gary Schmidt’s Landscapes of the Heart, my favorite music had been that of Mozart. Now this CD is absolutely the best. I never get tired of listening to this music. It is great as background music when one reads. It has soothing and calming effect on me. I feel fortunate to have this music”. (Customer review on Amazon).
