The qualities of John Sands’ musical expression, which demand admiration, lie on many different levels of appreciation, each level representing a standard of preference and taste different from another.
To the curious and alert listener, the quality might speak of thematic inventiveness or of the stimulating colour resulting from the imaginative arranging of orchestral voices, creating an attractive adornment of a simple melody line; which line is relaxing, soothing and comforting; yet to another listener, the quality might lie with the sophisticated presentation of a musical idea.
John Sands plays to devoted audiences who, familiar with his unique style, take delight in the enthusiasm and sensitivity he gives to each performance. He is undeniably a master of the Yamaha concert organ which delivers musical excellence under the talented fingers of this dedicated musician.
His repertoire is drawn from a large domain of music, and this album set features time honoured melodies as well as contemporary show classics that are well known to all.
