Hello!
This is my first post here... and I don't even play the piano! However, I love listening to piano music and get a real buzz about discovering new works and new favourite pianists.
I particularly enjoy Contemporary Instrumental (Piano) / Classical cross-over. I have over 1000 piano CDs, and spend far too much time listening to them!
Out of love for the music I hear and a wish to share it with others, I have deigned a very (very!) simple website: www.piano-heaven.co.uk
The idea behind this is to showcase my favourite piano CDs, by pianists (most of them classically trained) such as Kostia (Russia), Ludovico Einaudi (Italy) and Karen Marie Garrett (USA). I have reviewed my thirty favourite piano CDs. There are audio samples too. I have just finished interviewing Karen Marie Garrett, and that is on the site as well.
I am very new to this- I know it is nothing fancy, but I am really trying to "spread the word" and promote their work. Hand on heart, I love each CD I have included. The site is purely a labour of love. I have read the rules carefully, and I think it is appropriate to post this on this particular Forum- apologies if it is not.
I have included a link to Piano World on the home page, although someone has just e-mailed me to say they cannot see the logo! Another problem!!!
Anyway, I was hoping some of you might like to take a look, and if you have got any ideas as to how I can spread the word further (here or elsewhere), then please post here!
ps: I am not a musician- the reviews are written as a casual piano lover.
pps: As I said, I'm a real novice- the site looks best in Internet Explorer. Apologies if things do not look right or work properly in anything else.

Thank you, Matt. I was rather apprehensive about posting here, but all seems to be fine!
When I was younger, I was given the opportunity to have piano lessons, but I played a considerable amount of sport, so declined. However, I still get little melodies playing around in my head, and find it frustrating I can do nothing with them.... so definitely one day, yes!

Piano-Heaven has had a facelift. Quite a few new reviews as well, so anyone who likes beautiful, relaxing piano music might like to check out the site. Recent recipients of the Piano-Heaven award are Wayne Gratz, Bernward Koch, David Hicken and Elijah Bossenbroek.

Enjoy!

For those of you who enjoy relxing and melodic piano music, you may be interested in the interview with Ralph Zurmühle which I have just posted at Piano-Heaven. It's quite possible that you will find other musicians and music of interest whilst you are there.

Another facelift- another redesign and make over. Anyone with an interest in Contemporary Piano Music (or "New Age") might like to pay a visit.

Thank you.

For those of you who enjoy original and contemporary solo-piano music, you may be interested to knnow a new review has been added to Piano-Heaven- 'Breathing in the Moment' by the highly talented Michele McLaughlin. Fifteen gorgeous compositions well worth checking out. Also, a review of Christine Rayner's authorised take on the most beautiful Ludovico Einaudi compositions -all in a good cause (Cancer)- will be published soon.
