OCEANS - (Richard Palalay)
This piece for two pianos was inspired by my voyages across two great oceans of the world, the Atlantic and the Pacific.
AL OTRO LADO DEL MAR (The Other Side of the Sea) - (Richard Palalay)
This distance was never so great as when my wife and I were on different ships, two oceans apart.
PRELUDE / CROSSINGS - (Cello Suite No. 1 - J.S. Bach / Christopher Peacock)
The ocean breeze, the gentle currents and the sight of distant shores all welcome me to my island home.
WATERLINE - (Gene Nery)
The vessel gracefully heels as the sail catches the wind, capturing the power of nature... a feeling some cannot live without.
JAPANESE CURRENT - (Christopher Peacock)
The ocean water I touch with my hands is touched by many others from the shores of distant lands.
JAYLÉNA - (Christopher Peacock)
She lived on another island thousands of miles from mine, yet our lives touched, and now we call each other home.
THE SKY IN HER EYES - (Richard Palalay)
Written for a dear friend whose eyes were the color of the sky over the deepest ocean a thousand miles from shore.
OUT OF NOWHERE - (Christopher Peacock)
The calm, tranquil waters become abruptly alive as the whales appear out of nowhere, suddenly becoming part of my world... and I a part of theirs.
AMORE DI GIORNO - (Gene Nery)
Venice and romance... mornings in the Mediterranean will intensify love. In Venice, it's incomparable.
SEASHORE SALLY - (Christopher Peacock)
Visions of my children playing at the beach with Sally. You know Sally... she sells seashells by the seashore.
DOES IT HAVE TO BE SO TRUE - (Gene Nery)
Reality: inescapable and as unstoppable as an ocean storm. A voice in the storm is often heard only by its own heart.
LUNE DE L'ILE - (Richard Palalay)
As we sailed away from Bora Bora, I caught sight of the most haunting, most alluring moon I had ever seen, rising over the double peaks of Mt. Pahia.
