1 review for A New Dream – Hard Copy CD

  1. Review Written by
    Steve Sheppard

    It’s been my pleasure to have been on this journey with Lynn Tredeau, a
    former debut artists of OWMR, a former number one with her second album
    and her first release also held number 2 with an impressive tenure in the world
    100 chart, there can be no doubt that this fine pianist has indeed got
    something very special in her musical armoury and were about to find out
    more right now, as we go on another musical sojourn through her latest
    release, A New Dream.
    The opening composition is called Awaken and it slowly opens our eyes to a
    new day with its mellow construction. The performance on this was so
    delightful, one could really visualise the rays of a new sun streaming in through
    the bedroom window.
    On Deepest Part of the Lake we have a different arrangement entirely, the
    gentle and almost careful approach was perfect to depict the subject matter;
    there is a slight hesitancy within the performance here, one that pays respect
    to this part of the lake. In an impressive style in her first two tracks, Tredeau
    has been able to literally paint a picture for us with her piano and do it with a
    certain class.
    We move to Living in a Dream, I have felt like that at times, but this could be a
    positive or negative song title, however Tredeau’s performance seems to be
    one of happiness and gratitude, and while she plays, one can almost hear a
    slight energy of remembrance of a journey to get here.
    From time to time we all have to be Courageous; here Lynn Tredeau shows
    that by playing one of the darker tracks on the album. One can feel a narrative
    forming within her presentation; the minor chords are blissful and create a real
    sense of mood. The song has hope and the constant motif within the
    composition keeps driving onward, this was one of my favourite songs off the
    release.
    Lunch with Vincent is our next piece, while we ponder who Vincent is, we can
    of course enjoy this almost European styled performance, a sense of a waltz
    can be found here. This is almost like a song to wander through an art gallery
    too. Perhaps back to the Baroque era? There is a distinct sense of the romantic
    in this one, a track bursting with sunlight and joy.
    Something very sweet has now knocked on your musical door, it’s called Pixie
    Dance. The very delicate tinkling of the keys illustrates this with ease; once
    more Tredeau treats us to a track that has a real element of movement and
    dance within it and, as the piece progresses one can also feel a real flow
    forming in the song too.
    Moving over the half way point of the album we come to a mood filled track
    called Winter Thaw. Spring is my favourite time of year; I remember being in
    the old country and watching the first flowers bloom as winter’s dark and
    dismal clock begins to wind down, this would pretty much be my sound track
    to the end of that season. The artist’s skill in offering hope of a new period of
    growth, whist reminding one of those cold dark nights is sublime in her
    performance.
    Quite appropriately the next piece is called Seasons Change, the energy shift is
    quite clear and concise, the style is lighter, but respectful. This is a charming
    arrangement, that one could easily see radiant blooms of flowers blowing in a
    mild April breeze; this one has such a superb sense of flow and movement,
    that it’s utterly enchanting.
    Interesting enough I remember a book called The Land of Enchantas, this piece
    of music would make a superb film soundtrack to a story about talking animals,
    screaming vegetables and sorcerers. The depth of fantasy here is brilliant,
    perfectly composed and played by Tredeau in a really epic composition that
    has so much contained within, this deserves multiple listens.
    A Quiet Memory, what a beautiful title for a composition and when you listen
    dear reader, you will find this both appealing and attractive, this one piece
    really highlights just how far Tredeau has come in her career so far, this has a
    slight element of drama, a sensible use of power and such a delicate posture of
    reflection, apart from that, its cleverly played and one that I recommend to
    anyone to listen to again, a stunning track indeed.
    The artist’s reflective genius can be felt again in this next arrangement called
    Ocean of Tears. The melody and performance live up totally to the title, the
    performance is passionate and melancholy, but also very clever, just listen to
    the little spirit of hope, just hidden deep within the weave.
    The penultimate piece is now with us dear listener and called Innocence, again
    the motif is spot on, however the narrative is not one of a wide eyed
    innocence, but more of an energy of sensitivity, kindness and tenderness
    found from within a life experience, the extremely superb and delicate tempo
    changes are really something to behold.
    As we move into the last room of the realm of Lynn Tredeau, we can see the
    artist sitting at her instrument and she will perform for us one final time, this
    composition will be called Shadow of Your Absence, a dark tale perhaps of
    loss, but once more there is a sense of personal power waiting to be ignited
    from that forfeiture, dark and light, night and day, sadness and joy, all of this
    can be found on this track alone, a wonderful way to end what has been a
    deeply moving new release from the artist.
    A New Dream by Lynn Tredeau is the artists third album, is this so far her
    best? That is without doubt the truth, she has added a real layer of depth,
    sensitivity and emotion into her work and it’s paid off big time, Tredeau is now
    well on the way to becoming one of the finest pianist of her era, she has all the
    qualities required to do so, in a moment of reflection Lynn Tredeau may look
    back upon this release and think of it as real bar raiser.
