  • The Quiet Center: Keesecker's introspective piano music "resonates" 

    The Quiet CenterThe Quiet CenterTom Keesecker's new collection of piano music for Advent and Christmas, is refreshing in its introspection and is already resonating with players and listeners alike. From the composer:

    "I began composing The Quiet Center in November 2016. I finished the collection on January 20, 2017 and recorded it in February. It was my way of seeking a quiet haven amidst the turbulence affecting our country, although I sincerely hope that by turning in, I can—through my music—reflect out. The uncomplicated piano solos are mostly quiet, introspective pieces, suitable for the quietly joyful expectation of Advent and Christmas. "

    Keesecker's treatments of hymn tunes for Advent and Christmas are set both individually and in combinations. For example, Creator of the Stars of Night mixes CONDITOR ALME SIDERUM with HYFRYDOL, a tune many congregations sing with the Advent hymn “Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus.” There is also an original piece, "The Quiet Center," to round out the collection.

    A complete CD recording is available as well as the printed collection.

    In 2018, MorningStar Music will be releasing a second collection of Tom's piano music for Lent called The Quiet Journey: Piano Music for Lent and Holy Week. Here is a preview of one of those pieces, Attende Domine.
