The Calming
Part III of The Bullfinch Trilogy–warm, thoughtful and refreshing solo piano; this music is original and inspiring.

Recommended if you like George Winston, David Lanz, Michael Allen Harrison

The Calming is the final installment of Patrick Burke's well received Bullfinch Trilogy. As the name would imply this is the most tranquil of the three and Burke has made a special point of writing music which is highly introspective and engaging.

This is one of those CDs which will grow on you a little more with each listen. It has the effect of defining a time and place in your life. Stories are told, conclusions reached. Patrick Burke's Bullfinch Trilogy as a whole defies the current New Age stereotype in that the music is not simply lovely background fluff (not that there’s anything wrong with that), rather there is variation, personality, and most of all, drama in the theme and mood of each collection.

As the listener you are given the wonderful choice of really focusing on the finer details and subtleties or, if you prefer, simply allowing the music to float by of its own accord.
