Meditations of the Heart-Encore
As in all of Fernando Ortega's recordings, his music resounds with feelings and memories rooted in the Spanish melodies of his grandfather as well as classical sources, folk-rock and early American church hymns. Fernando began playing piano at the age of eight and went on to study classical piano at the University of New Mexico. His musical inventiveness and tender touch combine to create two incredible solo piano recordings. In this album collection of outstanding piano solos, Fernando creates a peaceful and contemplative environment to encourage the meditations of your heart. All of the original piano solo performances are rendered in majestic simplicity by Fernando and are played on the warm strings and rich woods of a nine-foot Steinway grand piano. These are must have recordings for every Fernando Ortega fan!
