Listen to instrumental piano music from Helen Jane Long on her latest album Perspective. She’s a UK composer/pianist whose compositions cross classical, chill out, and film music to create an indefinable combination of music minimalism. She is the first-ever billion-streaming pianist in the world and has a huge worldwide following.

I also included an earlier album Live at St James’s, London, as well as a live performance video at PianoForte Studios in Chicago from 2016. She will be on a US tour in 2020 at Los Angeles (June 21), San Francisco (June 27), and New York (October 17), as well as Guilford and London UK.

Anne Trenning: Beautiful Song

Anne Trenning: Beautiful Song

Listen to instrumental piano music by Anne Trenning and Friends on the new (4th) album Beautiful Song.

It features a collection of original music by composer and pianist Anne Trenning, with curated cover selections from a multi-genre spectrum. She is joined by James Todd (cello), Bill Leslie(Celtic flute), John Magnie (accordion), Jeff Oster (flugelhorn), Ciro Hurtado (guitar), Jane Brendle (violin), David Meyer (cello), Josh Daniel (guitar), Mark Schimick (mandolin), Brandon Bush (accordion), Fred Hiscock (tenor saxophone), Jennifer Dior (flute), and Rick Dior (percussion).

Beautiful Song by Anne Trenning and Friends is a musical box of chocolates in that each piece is different from the others. Instrumentation and genre vary from piece to piece, but the title really does say it all and could easily be ‘Beautiful Songs.’ This is my favorite of Anne Trenning’s albums so far!” — Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano.com

Relaxing Instrumental Music (Playlist)

Listen to instrumental music on this playlist that I discovered from a recent tweet by Michael Logozar and thought it needed to be shared.

This playlist was created by Laurie Ellis Petty with over 93 hours and this is her perfect description.

Beautiful and soothing peaceful piano, cello, violin, harp, and acoustic guitar, completely relaxing and calming instrumental songs. Music carefully curated to unwind and to rest to. Great for background music, the office, taking a nap, spiritual contemplation, reading/studying, or lovely listening.

Playlist

Enjoy!
