The Nightingale is an instrumental musical journey that tracks events depicted in the short story of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen. The Nightingale is shocking in its compositional depth and beauty, along with its delivery by the incredible Bulgarian flutist, Yana Nikol, and the equally gifted cellist, Katherine Colburn. Rounding out this trio on piano is the composer of the music and producer of the project, Mark Christopher Brandt. If you are a classical music fan, a jazz fan, or an eclectic fan seeking that magic sound that has not occurred in any of the aforementioned genres since the mid-1990’s, The Nightingale will be the best purchase you make this year and for many years to come. The hard copy experience is enough to start manufacturers producing CD players again.
