Piano by Request, Vol. 1 Review

by Johnny Loftus

Piano by Request is a tasteful collection of ten romantic melodies. Unlike many instrumental sets of this sort, the album's producers did not sully the recording's focus -- which is, after all, the titular requested piano -- with sappy backing tracks. Instead, the record delivers reserved, often sentimental takes on memorable cuts such as "Ballade Pour Adeline," "Chariots of Fire," and "Everything I Do, I Do It for You." Piano by Request is an effective, gloriously bland set of easy listening.
