The Enchanted Castle
I always find it such a pleasure to listen to the works of Annie Locke, she has a spellbinding talent that few can even get close to, and on The Enchanted Castle, Annie creates a tale to last through the ages. Her narration skills are only amplified through her performance on piano, which is always delightfully fluent and charming.
Here the artist manifests a mystical world of magic and myth, and produces one of the most compelling solo piano performances I have heard for a while. One can find many nuances within this colourful arrangement, all of them paint musical pictures within the listener’s minds, and leave them feeling totally fulfilled at the conclusion, a sublime new release indeed.
