DESCRIPTION

24 digitally orchestrated Barre & Center Exercises. 13 barre, 11 center exercises. No repeats. Extra long tracks. Finis Jhung says: "Besides writing completely new music for this CD, I asked Scott to consider reworking some of the exercises he composed for CD5. This music has always been a favorite, and now it is even more so. It reminds me of why I started dancing in the first place - to go to those special places you only find when you hear a certain kind of music."

Scott Killian says: "What I discovered while composing this CD is that as an improvisational pianist, I think in orchestral ways, and pieces that may work for solo piano are really sketches for music conceived (in my mind) for an orchestra. I cannot tell you how rewarding it has been to finally hear these pieces in arrangements that allow the colors and nuances of strings and brass and woodwinds to shine through. I hope you agree!"

CUSTOMER COMMENTS

"Bravo! It's a very 'Special Place' indeed - it's refreshing, rejuvenating, inspirational, thought-provoking, and most of all, right on the mark!" - Lois Hartman, Owner-Director-Teacher, Sebastopol Ballet, Sebastopol, CA

"After years of students not paying attention to class music, I thought I'd try your Orchestrated CD's, and, for the first time, the students are commenting on how much they like the music they're hearing, because it's not the same old boring piano music." - Barbara Mordents, Brookhaven School of Dance, Bellport, NY
