Oct 24, 2013Fresh piano improvisation, quite emotional: "Storms in my soul"
Oct 17, 2013Fantastic piano piece by Dirk Maassen that used my vocalizing recording just evolved into something bigger... Stunning orchestration was made by Steingrímur Þórhallsson! Listen to "Exodus - Dirk Maassen piano/Milana vocalise - Stein Thor Remix"

Oct 5, 2013This track started just as a mere experiment of blending reverberated piano as a pad with the lead piano line. Ended up in this dark ambient piece: "Echoing souls"
Oct 1, 2013The upcoming album with "Petits Reves Bizarres 13-24" (to be released on the 10th of October) just got a nice review at MainlyPiano!
Oct 1, 2013Shortly after publishing one of my recent piano improvisations, I got a message from Philip Bridle (UK). Philip wrote that the moment he heard the music, he rushed for pen and paper and the words just fell out of the pen. I truly admire Philip`s songwriting skills, what was initially just a mere piano improvisation, turned into this song. "Waltz of a dying candle" (Lyrics by Philip Bridle).
Sep 29, 2013About two months ago I asked what song you want me to cover and got several proposals. This is the song that got most "likes". Funny enough it was a cover already - played and sung by Tori Amos. So, here is my cover on Tori Amos`s cover :) Enjoy! "Smells like a teen spirit" (Nirvana).
Sep 25, 2013A new piano improvisation based on the motif composed by my husband: "Waltz of a dying candle"

Aug 14, 2013Fresh from the piano, inspired by the blinks of sun rays, playing on the keys: "Sunny keys".
Aug 5, 2013This is a very special song - it`s the first song that was written by my daughter. She played the main motif on piano, I expanded it into the full piece and then Sheana wrote the lyrics - all by herself. My son also contributed to the song by playing another motif used in this song. It was only fitting to record and publish this song on Sheana`s birthday - today "my little treasure" turned 9: "Little experiences".

Three months ago Stephan Beneking (a neoclassical composer from Berlin) and me got the idea to record a collaborative piano album: the mix of neoclassical compositions with free jazzy improvisations. At the end it turned into two albums instead of one and the first album is going to be available on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play and other digital stores on 14th of April. Please enjoy the very first piece of this album: "Petit Reve Bizarre I". The complete album is available for immediate download from BandCamp.
