New PianoSoft: French Impressionists and The Doobie Brothers: Together At Last

The Doobie Brothers have worked with EVERYONE! From Michael McDonald to Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, and even the Memphis Horns of Stax Records fame, the Doobies are the kind of heavy hitters in American rock music that just draw talent and awe. These guys are currently out on the road in the US, so you may have a chance to catch them in your town. For tour details, click here.

If you can't make it out to see the Doobie Brothers in action, you can thank Jason Nyberg for the new "Listen To The Music" PianoSoft Solo collection, featuring 10 classic hits including "Long Train Running" and "China Grove"! Listen to the music anytime you like with Yamaha's PianoSoft software for Yamaha Keyboards, Clavinovas, and Disklaviers!

Something You Said

Long Train Running

Listen To The Music- Live At Budokan 1993

Our latest addition to our Classical PianoSoft library is a collection that showcases charming pieces by renowned French composers from the Impressionist Music Movement. "En Francais" features 12 solo piano pieces from French composers such as Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, and Gabriel Faure, in masterful performances by Bryan Pezzone. Musical Impressionism in general focused less on literal storytelling or strong emotive musical concepts. Composers from this movement made use of more atmospheric and suggestive ideas and techniques, utilizing uncommon scales and employing more use of dissonance in composition.
