3 stars Another piano-based album by AP after several years. There are no other instruments for distraction,just one player and one instrument. AP is a decent piano player as he proved it on "Ivory Moon", he play with two hands simultaneously without issues.

Pieces are not complex, usually have a good melody and will be accessible to any listener.

THe first more complex piece is "Creation", because of its length. I like to highlight "Scythia" because it is a romantic and airy track that changes the octaves frequently (right hand). "Oregon Trail" is a dramatic piece with a strong motive. "Rain Suite" has twp tone alternating to remind of falling rain.

"Summer's Journey" is a pleasant closing piece.

This is a lovely piece, not progressive and not at the level of "Ivory Moon" but will please fans of calm piano music.
