Beautiful piano playing and orchestrations

The orchestration on this album stood out for me. I loved that each instrument in the orchestra was used effectively and idiomatically to produce lilting and soaring melodies, sharp attacks, and dramatic crescendos. The orchestra never overpowers the lovely piano playing - these two elements are well balanced, both in terms of the orchestration and the overall mix. I love the dialogue between the flute and cor anglais on DEEP ROOTS, a song that incorporates Celtic inspired melodies. The hymn like DAYS GONE BY is a serene and somewhat sorrowful song that moved me.

Breaking Through is a beautiful collection of works inspiring us to dream big-that amidst the chaos of a volatile world, there's hope, love, joy integrity and simple delight. Henning's rich orchestrations, soaring melodies and commanding piano performance are a pleasure to listen to.

What a great grouping of tunes. Relaxing, playful and thought provoking. Creates instant imagery. Luscious harmonies done with fantastic piano and orchestral writing. Perfect music for dinner parties, spa time, soothing children or coming down from a hard day with a glass of wine. It's like being wrapped in a blanket of music. Bravo!
