Reunion, by George Skaroulis offers ambient piano in a spa music collection of George’s most relaxing music - even if your “spa” is your own bath tub. Enjoy over an hour of “beautiful calm” including six new compositions, newly-recorded versions of his most popular songs, and a beautiful rendition of Sting’s song Fragile.”
"Pianist/composer George Skaroulis has once again succeeded in putting together an album so beautiful that it leaves you a little breathless. Few artists succeed in saying so much with so few notes, and Skaroulis’ graceful melodies and floating ambient poetry are pure musical magic. Clocking in at just over an hour, “Reunion” is the perfect length for a massage session, a lazy soak in your backyard spa (or bathtub!), a prelude to sleep, calming commuting nerves, or just some quiet time in your office chair! Use your imagination, but give yourself time to savor and be soothed by the gorgeous music on “Reunion.”
Sting’s “Fragile” begins the CD, and Skaroulis has really made this song his own. Accompanied on Flamenco guitar by Jean Pierre, the gentle rhythms and repartee between the piano and guitar set a lovely mood for the album as a whole. I have been a big fan of George Skaroulis and his music for several years now and have loved all of his thirteen previous releases, but I think this is his best CD yet.
I give “Reunion” my highest recommendation!" - Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano.com
“If I hadn't been a musician, I would have most likely been a massage therapist or worked in the spa industry; I think that comes through in my music.” - George Skaroulis
George Skaroulis began his love affair with the piano at the young and tender age of five. His mother was a classically trained pianist and George would sit on the bench next to her to watch and listen. One day, he started playing along. It wasn’t too long before George was figuring out the melodies of songs he heard on the radio. At the age of 10, his parents encouraged piano lessons, but in five weeks George quit the lessons after his teacher discovered he was playing by ear. Uninterested with structure & theory, George wanted to play the piano his way.
As a teenager, George began a career in the restaurant industry, and spent over 20 years in the business. Time at the piano was often his private escape. George never dreamed of pursuing his love of music as a career, but over the years, the piano kept calling him back.
To this day George doesn’t read music, and without those formal boundaries, he continues to create music in his own peaceful romantic style. George’s music undoubtedly has a calming effect on those who listen, even animals (George’s music has been chosen as the official music of the Atlanta Humane Society). It is no surprise this relaxing quality has attracted spa professionals and massage therapists worldwide.
Skaroulis is a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS), and a member of the American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers (ASCAP).
"Provide a musical sanctuary for your clients, and watch the positive atmosphere it creates in your practice." - George Skaroulis
