Solo Piano CDs



These are collections of original compositions by Barry Wylde, particularly for those who enjoy the pristine purity of a solo piano performance. These CDs were all performed on a Yamaha C7 piano and are studio digital recordings of high quality [please note: MP3 samples, like those below, do not have as high a resolution as the original CDs].

The music is heavily influenced by popular new age artists of the 1970’s onward, with a range of tempo and feel and representation from light jazz, classical music and cinematic/theatrical genres in every CD. My solo piano music is found by many as “very relaxing and soothing” [Since people said they like to fall asleep listening to the CDs, I had the idea of placing a warning on the covers, “Do not play and drive at the same time!”]. I hesitate to mention this, but an acquaintance mentioned how great it was to play these during sex [disclaimer: I make no claims as to enhanced sexual performance with these CDs!].


Hand Over The Keys [HOTK] is my first solo piano CD. This is oft cited as a favorite. Total playing time 64 minutes.

Reaching A New Age [RANA] is my second solo piano CD with similar themes to the first CD. The song entitled, “Reaching A New Age,” includes a melody line based on the popular Happy Birthday to You theme (written by Mildred J. Hill and Patty S. Hill and used with permission from Summy-Birchard and Fox-Warner Brothers Music). Thus, this makes a unique birthday gift to someone! Total play 52 minutes.

Familiar Touch [FT] is my most recent solo piano CD. Similar themes and influences. Also very well-received. Currently, the "site-wide music player" is featuring cuts from this CD. Total play over 51 minutes.
