Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Style Chronicles" is a five movement work and in this Pearson puts forth an original retrospective of piano evolution and the techniques incorporated in both composition and performance from the classical to the present. "Blue Work" is a concoction of blues flavored pieces put through a classical makeover. These dressed up tunes are elegant enough to please the classical listener but keep enough soul so one never loses its root in the blues. "Somber Bliss", the albums namesake, was composed to commemorate the brave men and women, many just teenagers, who've given their lives in the wars. The work takes us to heaven and hell, but in the end leaves one with a feeling of hope.
