Editorial Reviews

There are pianos everywhere, there for the playing, there for the sound of places, to turn the soil, to uncover the roots of things, as roadmaps to our true motives, instructing, retelling, drawing from us -- with a patience and sincerity we may not always manage on our own -- what is essential about breathing and dreaming, what may really be happening as we run blood through ourselves, share or take it from others, passing into Autumn, only just aware of the trees. -piano improvisations found in Hungary, Germany, Poland, Russia, and in remembrance of things past. Played by Viggo Mortensen, recorded by Travis Dickerson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing and Calm...not as improv as his other CD's August 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD
True, some of Viggo's CD's are a little too off the radar to garner mass appreciation. But this one should please many more fans than, say, "Please Tomorrow". Instrumental piano, mood pieces, very cool. It's my favorite of all his CD's, with "At All" my 2nd favorite.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It was cheap and it was not at all what I expected but in a very good way! It's all piano, but so beautiful and relaxing. I really loved it, and it arrived a lot earlier than expected it to!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surrealistic, Haunting and Strangely Mesmerizing . . . February 11, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
FascinatingLady - In his inimitable style, Viggo never gives us what we are expecting in any of his many genres of self-expression. First of all, he uses an unusual format. Some of the pieces are music and others are poems without words. For those who may like the regal pageantry of his Coronation Hymn in Lord of the Rings: Return of the King; they will be sadly disappointed. That's like comparing a Renoir to a Picasso.

This is not your average easy listening piano music. It is like modern art for the music world. It is very avant-garde and abstract. Imagine an artist throwing a glob of red paint on an otherwise beautiful pastel landscape. Like his art, it is a collage of the beautiful combined with the unexpected. For example, imagine a beautiful melody punctuated by sharp, discordant and unexpected chord changes, often in a minor key. It is dark, melancholy and often passionate. Some parts evoke a feeling of despair and mourning, reminiscent of a dirge.

It reminds me of the Van Gogh painting Starry Night. It's almost as if he's trying to exorcise the demons from his tortured soul through music the way Van Gogh did through art. If I had to compare it to one of his films, I would choose "The Passion of Darkly Noon". If you like that film with its dark and conflicting emotions, then you just might like this.

If we were to ask him what his music means, he would probably reply, "Whatever you want it to mean." The best word I could find to describe it is "cacophony" - the use of harsh or discordant sounds for poetic effect. Whether that was indeed his intent, I guess we'll never know. In the end, his music is as inscrutable as he is.

1.0 out of 5 stars No samples, no sale! August 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I adore Viggo Mortensen as an actor. As a poet, in many of his spoken word Cds also available at his website [...], he's outstanding. However, I can venture to say as someone who owns 5 of his Cds, there's a reason there are no sample tracks of this album available here. Once someone buys the music and find that it sucks they're out ten bucks. (the price of all of his music Cds at [...])

Viggo is eccentric. I know this from listening to his latest collaboration, "Three Fools In April". Anyone that pisses in their bathroom's sink, when that's what the toilet is for, and then proceeds to make a spoken word poem out of the experience to read to the public, tells me they're eccentric and then some.
So my advice. If you can't hear a sample of any of his Cds and you want to buy them simply because you're a fan of the actor himself, just remember you were warned! In Latin! "Caveat emptor!" (Buyer Beware)
