Read a review from Media and Focus magazine:

And this from the founder of Windham Records and multiple Grammy/Gold record producer Will Ackerman:

“Gary Schmidt’s piano compositions clearly reflect his knowledge of and appreciation of classical music.  His technique is refined and his ability to move between classical influences and his own distinctive melodies is seamless.  LANDSCAPES of the HEART is a marvelously successful tour de force of heart and mind; emotionally evocative and rewarding and is an important contribution to the evolution of contemporary piano and should not be missed”.  Grammy award winning producer and founder of Windham Hill records, Will Ackerman

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 havethis music.
