5.0 out of 5 stars Incomparable, lush, glorious. Buy this CD! May 27, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If there is a better musician - composer and performer - on the scene today, I'd like to know who that person might be. Craig Urquhart has a musical vision that is unsurpassed. Indeed, I am surprised my CD hasn't worn out from being played so often. This disc is a must for the connoisseur, as Mr. Urquhart's playing is revelatory, his compositions harmonically grounded ...with absolutely captivating melodies. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars from Solo Piano Publications March 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Epitaphs and Portraits" is an elegant, highly emotional collection of original piano solos that came about from years of coping with the loss of friends and colleagues from AIDS. Dedicated to the Bread and Roses care home in Connecticut, ten of the fourteen pieces are titled "In Memoriam" followed by someone's initials. Some of the pieces are mournfully sad, and others are more celebratory of a special person's life - all carry a sense of healing. Although the theme of the album sounds depressing and heavy, the music is well-balanced, placing a lighter piece after a heavy, dark one. Craig Urquhart has had very extensive classical training, and spent five years as Leonard Bernstein's personal assistant. Well-known as a composer of classical art songs, Urquhart's composing has evolved into more of a contemporary classical/new age style with a unique and very powerful voice. "Honor and Remembrance" opens the CD with a lovely, flowing piece that is full of grace and warmth. Gentle and yet deeply passionate, there seems to be a mix of questioning and quiet acceptance. "In Memoriam G.S." is much darker with chords in the lower registers of the piano that accentuate the pain of loss mixed with frustration and anger. "In Memoriam E.G." is much lighter - perhaps a tribute to a friend who kept his sense of humor despite his own pain, lightening the load for others. "In Memoriam M.M." has a dance-like, Celtic quality, full of life and the joy of movement. "Charlie's Blues" is a bit of a departure from the other works, but Urquhart is a great blues pianist and the piece fits well. "Bread and Roses" is graceful tribute to the compassionate people who care for others with AIDS in a non-institutional setting, making their days more pleasant and loving. Read more ›

If you don't know the work of Craig Urquhart, you're in for that rare thrill -- the discovery of a major talent! You'll wonder where this special soul has been all your life. Forget the mishmosh of a lot of so-called new-age stuff -- this is the right stuff, the REAL THING!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Journey Inward July 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Craig Urquhart pulls the heart strings and takes you somewhere you may or may not want to go, a lament of sadness and joy. There is a softness and strength in the chords, a sound of old ways in a new form. A fine piece of music !
