LE JARDIN 

This song is soothing.

It touches the soul and takes away feelings of stress and negativity.

Peace of mind, peace of the spirit … incredible to feel.

Hope you enjoy it.

Kevin Kern is one of my favorite New Age musicians.

“My whole life, thus far, has been a celebration of that unique bond I have felt with my favorite musical instrument and ‘best friend’.  The melodies I have written are a testament to that friendship.”

~ Steinway Artist and Composer, Kevin Kern

Kevin Kern (born Kevin Lark Gibbs on December 22, 1958) is an American pianist, composer and recording artist of New Age music.

He was born in Detroit, Michigan. He is now generally recognized as a representative of the New Age style. Born legally blind, Kern is aided in studio by SONAR’s accessibility and Dancing Dots’ assistive music technologies for the vision impaired.

Kevin was found playing “Silent Night” on the piano at 18 months of age. He started learning the piano regularly at 4 and began writing music at 8. At 14, he put on performances with the music group he founded called “The Well-Tempered Clavichord“.

Despite his legal blindness since birth, he was still determined to be a pianist.

On A Drop of Dew

See how the orient dew,
Shed from the bosom of the morn
Into the blowing roses,
Yet careless of its mansion new,
For the clear region where ’twas born
Round in itself incloses:
And in its little globe’s extent,
Frames as it can its native element.

Excerpt “On A Drop of Dew” by Andrew Marvell

This is perfect to consider on these crisp and chillier mornings, when you’re likely to find more than just one drop of dew on the grass. Andrew Marvell wrote in the 17th century, and as a metaphysical poet concerned with a new expression and freedom at the time.

TOM BARABAS

I was browsing through the net, looking for something new (to me), interesting, creative, inspirational and soothing to post “at the end of the day”. This is what I crave for after these recent days. Something where my soul can feel comfort, peace and tranquility. 

I think I found it. I would like to share it with you.

Hope that you enjoy it as much as I have.

Tom Barabas is an American-Hungarian pianist/keyboardist. He studied classical music at the Caracas Conservatory in Venezuela before developing a taste for rock, jazz, and New Age.

~~Childhood~~

Barabas spent his childhood in Hungary, and emigrated to the US in the 1960s, living and composing in San Diego, California. In the classic style of great, onstage performers, Tom Barabas delivers a musically eloquent experience that builds rapport with his audience and invites them to fall in love with his graceful streams of sound.

An Early Start – Tom began playing music at the age of four in Budapest, Hungary. By age 12, he had attracted the interest and praise of his piano instructors and he made his public debut at the Liszt Conservatory of Music.

In 1949 his family emigrated to Venezuela where he studied classical piano and composition at the Venezuela Conservatory of Music in Caracas, Venezuela’s “Juilliard”. He earned his Master’s Degree in 1957.

~~Reviews~~

“Tom’s performance was sensational. The artistry of his music and his personal charm enriched the evening for everyone. We thank him for sharing his exceptional talents with us.”

Nancy Mulligan, ASPEN Productions, Inc.

National reviewer, P.J. Birosik’s response to Tom’s music echoes the sentiments of his fans across the country – ”Barabas composes richly harmonic and well-articulated pieces that satisfy the soul and stir the imagination.” He performs with an intimacy, spontaneity and living warmth that sets him apart from other instrumentalists. His technique combines classical, Latin and jazz traditions in an unmistakably personal and joyful style.
