A solo piano collection composed and recorded in Taiwan
Piano compositions composed and performed by Hannah Heinz
Painting Taiwan in Sound
From experiences, feelings or atmospheres that took place in Taiwan I made a list of two words. The first word is an adjective, the second is a noun. The pairs of words created would be pulled out each day when I sat down to improvise. Thinking about the very specific words that I had for that day, I hit record and improvised a piano solo to describe the scenario that colors my mind with the memories from those words.
Glimpses of Taiwan
This collection of improvised notes was colored in from everyday things you would see during a typical day in Taiwan. Small things. The things that easily fall through the cracks. Yet, the things that most importantly make that place the unique place it is. The pictures were all black and white and cropped in a square shape. With nothing in front of my eyes but the monotone picture, I hit record and colored in the scene with notes and textures that made each and every one of those pictures a real-life scene from life in that place.
Embarking (GraceWave's first release March 2017)
This piano improvisation is infused with a lyrical melody that soars through the piece with grace.
The Composer's Story:
"After packing and getting ready for a trip that would take me out of the country for the first time ever, I slowly passed the piano in the living room. Pausing, I sat down to play one more time before I departed. At that point, I did not know how many months or years it would be until I had the blessing of playing the piano again. Feeling the smooth keys, I started to play this melody. As I added in the arpeggiating left hand, this piece became the bittersweet goodbye at that point in my life. Leaving the instrument behind was not a final goodbye because I could take this melody with me in my heart." - Hannah Heinz
Move Love to Thee
This is the most simple and important cry our heart can make. "More Love to Thee," is a simple and meditative piano solo that will bless you. Reflect on our Savior and what He has done to show you His love. Arranged and performed by Hannah Heinz.
