Gabriele’s Piano Music
Composed and played by Gabriele Gschwendtner
The music falls into the genre of minimalism, driven by simple chords and repetitive patterns, and at the same time offering great variety of style. Having been trained as a classical pianist for 12 years the influence of classicism can be noticed in the structure and the rich melodic content of some pieces that seem to tell stories. There are jaunty dance pieces bringing waltz, ragtime, shades of folk music and Jewish syncopated dance rhythms into play. Rhythm has become a strong aspect in Gabriele’s most recent compositions through her connection to traditional marimba music.
Gabriele has recorded three albums of her own piano compositions: Soul Moons (2012), Inner Orbit (2014) and In Between (2017)
