Peter Vantine: Flowers
Peaceful and relaxing solo piano improvisations inspired by healing flowers.
Peter Vantine - Flowers
Music to celebrate and to mourn, to express compassion and love, piano tunes that soothe and heal. These songs reconnect us with the archetypal forces within, the inner woman and man, the inner child etc.. The language of flowers translated into music.

Flowers is a collection of 10 solo piano improvisations based on certain plants and flowers, performed by pianist/composer Peter Vantine. Why flowers? That was my idea. Me, Dirk Albrodt. I am a therapist and researcher of the history and the healing qualities of flowers. I am also author of a handful of books about the use of flowers in the therapeutic field. For more than 25 years I have used music in my practice in order to create a supportive and healing atmosphere. It quickly became obvious that there is more to music than just its soothing effect.
These are the pieces on the cd:
Pomegranate – the woman
Sunflower – the Man
Pear – the mother
Bougainvillea – the poet
Cherry – the lover
Touch-Me-Not Balsam – the innocent
