Quiet Passion


SKU: MMP-116



Quiet Passion – the kind that comes from intimate knowledge and love over many years.  These songs express that deep love that only comes with time: for a lover, a spouse, a friend, a child, for humanity, for life.  All from soundtracks, these pieces were chosen for their stand-alone beauty, but also for the movies they accompanied.  You may not recognize some of them, but you will recognize the emotions they speak to within.  Equally evident here is this artist’s passion for the piano – a mature passion born of the intimate knowledge that could only come from his life-long experience at the instrument. In Quiet Passion, Emile Pandolfi continues to bring out the best in beautiful songs and the best in pure piano.

About the Pianist

With almost thirty recordings in his own discography, Emile Pandolfi ranks among America’s most popular piano artists. With the majority of his performance repertoire being lush, intricate arrangements of Broadway and standards that form the canon of "The Great American Songbook", his influences are, in fact, more classical than pop. And it is this subjective layering of classical style that Pandolfi infuses onto the broad palette of selections performed in his frequent concerts that resonates with audiences everywhere.
