Fully expressive piano artistry Brian Hagen – Portraits

Fully expressive piano artistry Brian Hagen – PORTRAITS:  It’s been quite a while since I reviewed Brian’s wonderful “You’re The One” album, but now he’s back with a release packed with fully expressive piano artistry… watch his studio concert first to get a feel for his high-talent and energy…

To enjoy many more of his performances, be sure you SUBSCRIBE to his channel.

Brian opens the album with the beautiful “Iridescence“, painting shimmery rainbows for you with the full range of his keyboard; I fully expect this song will be aired by DJ’s around the globe frequently!

Brilliant images of lush greenery will appear in your mind as you listen to “Garden Duet“… I was especially impressed by Brian’s left/right hand coordination on this joyful tune.

Darker tones are emphasized on the 4:30 “Regrets“… sadly enough, I’m sure that’s something we can all relate to… this is one of the best compositions I’ve ever heard Brian perform!

Something everyone needs to do often in these often troubled days is expressed beautifully on “Finding The Stillness“… if I were on the nominating committees, this song would definitely be recommended for an award.

It was easy to make my choice for personal favorite of the fifteen fantastic piano solos Brian offers up… the closer, “The Peace Within“, will surely help you get closer to that which surpasses all!

I give Brian a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98.  Get more information (and pre-order) on Brian’s website.     Rotcod Zzaj
