Narcissus Reflects
Part II of The Bullfinch Trilogy–Solo piano, dramatic, plaintive, complex.

Recommended if you like George Winston, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Neil Innes

Here is a thoughtful and thought-provoking collection of songs. Narcissus Reflects, the title track (which at over 12 minutes is also the longest) starts almost comically, then begins to change after the first three stanzas.

With one dramatic melody sweeping over another, and tumbling crescendos giving way to still-water emotion, Narcissus Reflects is a complete journey in itself. And that's only the first track.... The experience continues with the moody and proper sounding Pittock Mansion. There is quiet dignity in this piece and the easy-going feel of a previous era. Three Chosen Clouds is a trilogy, with each piece subtly echoing the other two. Park Bench, 4AM is peace and security personified featuring a conclusion that seeps into the unconscious with understated grace. Apple God, a Gershwin-esque arrangement includes unique melodies of perceived urgency, unspoken longing, and pure joy.

Narcissus Reflects has rightfully been called “a sound track for the wandering mind.”
