Alicen's Nocturne

Reinvention MP3
Ray Beswick
My kind of music

Reinvention is one of six beautiful mp3 Albums by David Hicken that I have bought.
The other albums I have are Angels, Faeries, Goddess, Sagas, and Stories of you. I chose these albums because I prefer David’s slower, softer and more delicate compositions. I bought Reinvention however knowing that there were a few faster, more dramatic pieces, but having reviewed the videos of David playing these on his website, I decided they were too good to miss. The majority of the tracks though on these six albums are my preferred kind of music, which I can only describe as beautiful, and I look forward to more of the same from David.

The Art of Piano Book by David Hicken

A variety of beautiful pieces to play and later teach to future pianists in SA and the UK.I also share the pieces with friends and colleagues as it is futuristic and post modern.

Faeries Book

Magical

Faeries is thoroughly magical and breathtaking. I do love all of David’s compositions as his music is indeed healing, giving me that sought after serenity that no other composer has given me. And though I have to say that I am not very good at piano (however I am improving thanks to David’s instructions books) I do enjoy the time I spend at the piano learning and attempting to play David’s music.

Gorgeous Carol

I find the base line a tad repetitious, so I need to really understand it in terms of dynamics, to make it as interesting as possible. Like everything musically speaking, maybe easy to play.... nothing should be easy if you are bring something to it.

Spiritual and bewitching

This is so spiritual and bewitching that I believe David indeed had Angels inspiring him throughout when composing Angels

Paradisum (Paradise)

Such a nostalgic piece of art...It reminds me of my loved ones who have crossed the bridge of paradise. Everytime I listen to it, it soothes my heart. It's my honour to practice on it now. Thank you Mr Hicken for composing an absolute masterpiece.

Sounds of Christmas

Excellent collection of beautifully crafted Christmas arrangements. Nice variety in the choice of pieces which range from very challenging to play to more straightforward.

Masterpiece!

Exceptional work of art!

Must Have!

If you want to impress your friends, you can't go wrong with Arjuna's Dilemma or Breaking Protocol. A book for all levels of pianists!
You can start with Waltz For Kanchana and work your way up to Incantation 4.0
