Undiscovered Reflections | Cd Review

Without a doubt one of our family's favorite people to see on Celtic Thunder's more recent projects is the unbelievably talented David Munro!  This pianist has brought his creative expertise and piano playing skills to Celtic Thunder for the past 4-5 years (I double-checked, he's actually been with them since 2011 so 8 years.)



I was so thrilled when they announced that he was going to be releasing a piano project and let's just say its been played a lot {!!} since I received it in the mail last month.

I found this little bit of info from David about the project-
"As an avid lover of theatre, I took my starting point for this album from a variety of themes that I could reflect on and relate to. From these ideas I developed a series of musical portraits, which eventually evolved into ‘Undiscovered Reflections’. The narratives and images from which I worked have been noted below in order for the listener to get a sense of each piece’s origin. However, regardless of the written descriptions and figurative titles, it is both impossible and unnecessary to dictate what the listener will take from hearing this music; but rather I offer it up in the hope that in listening, you will find something for yourself."  ~David Munro

I normally share my favorites from every album with you all but honestly I don't know that I could choose just one or even a few from Undiscovered Reflections.  David is one of the most talented pianists today in my opinion and I personally believe everyone should own a copy of this project.  If you haven't snagged yourself a copy yet head over to Celtic Thunder's website and do so. You won't regret it!
