Richard Goldsworthy

Music for Solo Piano








SILK


During a writing retreat in a traditional Japanese Inn close to the country’s ancient capital, Kyoto, Richard composed the music for Silk - surrounded by bamboo forests, mist covered mountains, sacred shrines and ancient temples.

Silk is a serene, touching and emotionally moving journey designed to calm the mind and massage the soul – somewhat reflecting the Japanese “Zen” philosophies of simplicity, beauty and space, in over one hour of tranquil music for solo piano.

Geisha

Last Kiss

HIDDEN DANCERS


A collection of beautifully crafted pieces for solo piano, Hidden Dancers takes the listener on a gentle musical journey... through the mountains, forests and beaches of tropical Australia.


Tranquil and yet melodic, Hidden Dancers creates a pleasurable and musical listening experience as well as a relaxing mood.

The Destiny of a Falling Leaf

Vision of Peace

MAGIC HAPPENS


An album inspired by Richard's early childhood, spent in the tiny rainforest village of Kuranda, in the tropical North of Australia.  “Magic” captures the cascade of waterfalls, the silence of the rainforest and the music of the monsoons in a series of tranquil and uplifting piano melodies.


On several tracks Richard’s piano blends with soft and beautiful “Enya-style” vocal effects by guest vocalist Julie Mercer.

                                                                                                                   

Sparkling Jewels

Diving Down Deep

FIRELIGHT MOON


Richard's most intimate CD, Firelight Moon is a tender, subtle, and starkly beautiful collection of pieces for solo piano, touched with a hint of melancholy.


Taking some inspiration from the ‘Nocturnes” (night music) of piano composer Chopin, Firelight Moon makes a great accompaniment to a quiet evening, a candle, and a glass of red wine...

Twilight Waltz

THE QUIETENING


Richard created The Quietening during several writing retreats in some of some of the places that most inspire me close to home on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia - the ancient forests of the Bunya Mountains, a mud brick cottage on a hill in the Noosa Hinterland, watching the sunrise over the Glasshouse Mountains and in my home studio overlooking the ocean.


Soothing and yet uplifting, The Quietening gently cradles the listener in a serene, calm and tranquil world of hauntingly beautiful music for solo piano.

LIFTED


Richard’s aim when creating this album was to produce gentle solo piano music that is relaxing in mood and yet uplifting at the same time – music that “calms the mind and lifts the spirit”.


The creative journey to produce Lifted began on the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii, where as well as the breathtaking scenery Richard was also inspired by the lovely harmonics of traditional Hawaiian music. He also composed music in the red deserts near Phoenix, Arizona before the album came to completion closer to home in the picturesque Blackall Ranges near the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia.
