"A New Age of Classical Piano is excellent from the first note to the last! It is available from Amazon, iTunes, and CD Baby. Very highly recommended! I never know what to expect when I get a CD with the terms "new age" and "classical piano" juxtaposed since quite a few compilations are arrangements, often simplified and shortened for listeners with "on-the-fly" listening preferences. Much to my delight, Christopher Boscole plays this collection of classical favorites mostly as originally composed with a few personal touches here and there. His A New Age of Classical Piano consists of ten solo piano classics and two stunning originals. The classics include four by Debussy, one by Satie, four by Chopin, and one by JS Bach. All of these pieces are familiar and easily accessible, and Boscole chose his selections for the music’s relaxing and uplifting qualities, performing them to perfection on a 9’ Steinway D grand piano. Mastered by Joe Bongiorno at Piano Haven, the piano sound is warm, clear and pristine. In short, I LOVE this album, and am almost certain it will be on my list of Favorites for 2014.

The first four tracks are by French Impressionist composer Claude Debussy: "Arabesque #1," "Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum," "Claire de Lune," and "Reverie." In most of his compositions, Debussy wanted the piano to sound like it didn’t have hammers hitting the strings, and Boscole captures that velvety sound beautifully. Erik Satie’s "Gymnopedie #1" is a haunting piece that most people don’t know the name of even though they’ve heard it many times. Often used in films and advertising, it is by far Satie’s best-known and best-loved piece. Boscole keeps it slow, graceful, and simple as it was originally composed. The first of the Chopin pieces is "Prelude #1," a short flowing piece that livens the mood. His "Mazurka Op. 17 #4" has a dreamy, sighing quality and Boscole plays it from the heart. Bach’s piece is his ever-popular "Prelude in C" with a few small changes that extend the piece a bit. Despite my deep love for these classics, the piece with the biggest "wow!" factor for me is Boscole’s own "Prelude in C Minor." What a compelling and passionate piece! I hope there will be sheet music for this one soon! Chopin’s "Valse Op. 64 #2" is one of my favorite Chopin pieces to play and I always love hearing others play it well - Boscole does an exceptional job. "Playing Rain" is the second Boscole original. Slow and on the melancholy yet peaceful side, the piece expresses different kinds of rain while staying soothing and relaxing - love it! Chopin’s "Minute Waltz" (which is never played in just a minute) brings this wonderful album to a playful and lighthearted end. Encore!!!"

"Enjoying the CD very much, cooling me out. Impressed with your classical stuff. Very cool and relaxing. Your playing is so good and the piano sounds so good. Didn't know you played classical so well. I have worked on those tunes, always loved the (Chopin) Mazurka is A minor ,one of my favs, I had some of the advanced students in my piano classes work on it, the left hand part is beneficial as practice for jazz."

"I was delighted to get this recording. You have embraced some of the most elegant, balanced and challenging European masterworks for the piano with much reflection and respect... Lovely tone, balance and choice of pacing...Big Congratulations on this fine recording!"
