Info zu The View from Here
After 20 years away from the recording studio, Michael Gettel returns to his solo piano roots with The View From Here, a dazzling, magical collection of twelve piano solos, most of which were inspired by nature and a few that include beautifully-recorded nature sounds. One of the Narada record label's top artists in the 1990s, Michael recorded twelve albums before going on hiatus in 2001. His 1988 debut album, San Juan Suite, is his only other solo piano album and he literally sold hundreds of thousands of copies out of a garage before signing with Narada. Gettel was a music teacher for 36 years at two different private schools - one in Colorado and one in Seattle - before returning to Colorado about five years ago. Inspired by the beauty of the area as well as international backpacking trips with his students, Gettel composed the music for this album over a three week period in April 2021. This is the first time, he has written out all twelve of the tracks by hand (pencil, paper, eraser and ruler!) before playing them, and the results are stunning. With music that ranges from serene and dreamy to upbeat and energetic, Gettel's new work will thrill his longtime fans and bring in many new ones, too.
Michael Gettel, piano
is a Seattle, Washington-based composer of new-age music. Many of Gettel's pieces consist of piano with ensemble such as drums, flute, acoustic and electric guitars, synthesizers, et cetera. However, he does have several solo piano compositions, some of which consist of soft nature sounds in the background. Michael was greatly inspired to write music by his family and friends, and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
