Although the holidays are all about gathering together with your loved ones and celebrating, sometimes you need a moment away from all the excitement. Since these times can be rare during this time of year, Curb Records offers up Christmas Solitude: Beautiful Piano Instrumentals for a Peaceful Holiday Season, an album of Christmas tunes performed as solo piano pieces. Soothing and stark, the album offers up stirring renditions of less omnipresent songs like "Celtic Cradle Song (Baloo Lammy)" and "Hush, My Dear, Lie Still and Slumber/Coventry Carol," giving you a break not only from the rush of the season but also from the same old songs you've been hearing on repeat for months on end.
