About the Artist

Choosing to go only by his middle name for his professional recording career, Fabian Isadar Thibodeaux first began piano lessons at age five. In junior high school, Isadar's interests switched to woodwinds, but he rediscovered his original instrument at 17 and decided to stick with it. While studying at the University of Louisiana, Isadar began working on songs that would later be released on his 1997 release, Dream of the Dead, which was strongly inspired by Kate Bush's The Dreaming. However, Isadar's musical interests were not limited to pop. He was also influenced by Windham Hill-style instrumentals, and his first album, Near the Edge of the Light, was a collection of piano solos. From 1995-1998 Isadar took a break from recording, but in 1999 he issued two albums, Active Imagination and In Search of the Meaning of Christmas, both of which had been recorded back to back in a day's session. In 2000 The Journey came out, and in 2003 The Purple Heart, improvisational piano music dedicated to the victims of 9/11, was released. The next year's record, Lessons in Love, saw a return to the pop found on Dream of the Dead, as did 2005's Private Property. In 2006 Isadar issued Elevations: Electronic Soundscapes. ~ Marisa Brown, All Music Guide

Format: Audio CD
I have discovered a real wealth of great solo piano Christmas CDs this year! Isadar's "In Search For the Meaning of Christmas" definitely falls into this category! Thoughtful, introspective, and a bit moody, Isadar's arrangements are true to the carols (with some small melody changes in "Bring a Torch" and "Carol of the Bells" that bother me just a little) and still seem very personal. "Bring a Torch", "The Holly and the Ivy", and "I Saw Three Ships" are given a lighthearted, joyful treatment. "Star of Wonder (We Three Kings)", "What Child Is This?", "The Coventry Carol", and "Sing We Now of Christmas" are all minor, somber, reverent pieces, and all four are given loving arrangements that keep the dark, mysterious nature of the songs and reflect Isadar's own sensibilities. "Carol of the Bells" and his homage to Liz Story's arrangement of "Greensleeves" are energetic without losing all abandon. "Silent Night" and "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" present us with a very cold, deep solitude - both feel like late night with moonlight reflecting off the snow. Both are moody, but very beautifully so. George Winston's "December" is one of my all-time favorite holiday albums, and I feel "In Search For the Meaning of Christmas" holds up exceptionally well next to it. This is an excellent collection of Christmas music, and I highly recommend it!
