New Holiday PianoSoft At Yamaha MusicSoft!

The most wonderful time of the year is nearly upon us! We've got two new PianoSoft collections to help you get into the spirit of the coming season. Last year we received so many requests for a PianoSoft Solo version of Selections From "A Charlie Brown Christmas" that we couldn't help but deliver. In addition, we are offering a wonderful selection of holiday-themed compositions performed by Mike Garson that's appropriately titled "Impressions Of The Season". Every year around this time the musical climate changes in all the shops. As the holiday spirit builds throughout November and the hustle turns to bustle to get your holiday shopping done, you can rest easy and relax with some light and cheerful holiday music and your Yamaha Keyboard, Clavinova, or Disklavier!

Selections From "A Charlie Brown Christmas"
It's hard to imagine the animation of Charles Schultz's "Peanuts" and the affable underdog Charlie Brown without the music of Vince Guaraldi. From the classic Peanuts theme "Linus & Lucy", to the sing-along favorite "Christmas Time Is Here"; the music of this timeless classic holiday program is recreated with loving care by Tom Zink. I was fortunate enough to catch a live-action stage performance of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" in New York City a few years back, and the emotional sweetness and childhood nostalgia that the show delivers is positively amplified by Mr. Guaraldi's music. Enjoy the subtle and charming solo piano performances in this collection with your friends and family this season!

"Impressions Of The Season"- Mike Garson
Impressions of the Season is truly a complete collection of the most light-hearted holiday songs, in the outstanding PianoSoft Solo format. Mike Garson has carefully chosen 13 standard holiday songs, and created wonderfully memorable, if not understated arrangements. From "Deck The Halls" and "Winter Wonderland" to the jazzy rendition of "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", to more traditional carols like "Good King Wenceslas" and "Come All Ye Faithful"; Impressions of the Season serves as a perfect soundtrack for holiday parties, or family time decorating the tree.
