Twilight

Twilight

“The sun hides in shadows and the changing light paints a sky the color of crushed rose petals on tea-stained linen. I wish my whole life could be this color. Night falls. The approaching star dance will, with luck, follow me into the deep folds of darkness and grace my dreams with its playful arabesque . . .”

Twilight is Robin Meloy Goldsby’s second solo piano recording. Goldsby performs fourteen original piano compositions with a gentle touch, setting the mood for reflection and meditation, a quiet evening at home, or a romantic dinner. Although Twilight is perfect atmosphere music, the songs are beautifully composed–with lilting melodies, serene harmonies, and memorable passages that call for repeated listenings.

Included with the CD is a sixteen page two-language booklet (English-German) with Goldsby’s poetic musings and stories about her compositions, such as this passage describing the piece “One Woman’s Journey:”

“I walk slowly on an ancient wooded path that leads from my home into the surrounding hills. Next to me is my one-year-old son, pointing his fist at the small birds fluttering from tree to tree. The light is amber, but the leaves are growing dusty and curled. The summer is over. I imagine another time here in Germany, and another woman with a small child who may have walked this same path. Another time, another journey; not to be forgotten as I take my son’s hand and try to protect him from the beautiful day.”

“Langsam folge ich einem alten Waldpfad, der von meinem Haus in die Hügel führt, die es umgeben. Ganz nah an meiner Seite geht mein einjähriger Sohn. Er deutet mit seiner kleinen Faust zu den winzigen Vögeln, die von Baum zu Baum flattern. Das Licht scheint bernsteinfarben, aber die Blätter werden schon staubig und kräuseln sich. Der Sommer ist vorüber. Ich denke an eine andere Zeit hier in Deutschland — und an eine andere Frau mit einem kleinen Kind, die möglicherweise denselben Pfad gelaufen sind. Eine andere Erfahrung, eine andere Zeit . . . es gibt kein Vergessen. Ich umschliesse die Hand meines Sohnes und versuche diesen wundervollen Tag für ihn zu bewahren.”

Listen to the music, read the booklet, and be rewarded with an accoustic voyage into Goldsby’s world–a place where graceful solo piano accompanies a symphony of emotions.
