This is an ambient collection of tunes composed by Freeland Barbour, exquisitely and consummately played on a Bosendorfer 275 Concert Grand piano. It's an immeasurably relaxing recording, a million miles away from the lively, rousing music of his band career.

Freeland's compositions are understated, lyrical and possess an innate strength, creating an almost new-age/folk feel. Pieces such as Lagavulin (written in celebration of an Islay whisky) feature lush, ambient and orchestral effects. Elsewhere, the compositions are inspired by an Icelandic river, a Faroese sea stack and the landscapes of Norway. All Hallows and Candlemas are celebrated with fine and stirring compositions.

The grand piano sounds absolutely beautiful and Freland clearly takes pleasure in performing his music on this magnificent instrument -- all the warmth and depth of tone is captured.

Winter's Journey isn't an album where you can single out particular compositions as highlights -- these 22 pieces move gracefully with a pleasing, unifying lyrical flow. This is exactly the sort of music to enjoy to when relaxing while concentrating on a hobby, or doing some research at home -- or when when doing nothing at all and simply want to focus your mind on music of immense beauty.
