River By Antonija Pacek




Antonija Pacek

Those who know me well will know of my love of rivers, it seems somewhat ironical that I should retire to a country in Cyprus that has none, until winter comes that is, and then the fall flows from the mountains to the grateful lands below, hopefully.

However I have many great memories about rivers, they are the masters of time, and will remain so throughout our lives. This new single from Antonija Pacek highlights my thoughts, her prowess on piano on this piece is quite beautiful, and we can hear from her keys the trickledown effect of the water, the slowness and then pause of the currents, and then through the melody, the richness of a quickened flow once again.

River is a colourful and emotional offering from her hands and mind; this is a quite beautiful reverie that you will be able to listen to many times over as the years fall by, and this timeless mastery of piano by Antonija will be your release from stress and frustration, as you listen to this picture book performance and know that despite all that happens, still the river flows.
