5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, poignant and indisputably beautiful 10 Aug 2006
By J. Fox
Format:Audio CD
Why this Ethiopian pianist slipped over everyone's heads is beyond me. This batch of recordings from nun Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou showcases some of the most touching instrumentals ever written. After the first few tracks, you will realise you have already been ushered closer into her life story and it is hard to finish listening to the CD without being at one point stunned into complete and utter silence, not even daring to move.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, beautiful & haunting music 21 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
This collection of piano pieces by Tsegue-maryam Guebrou are quietly beautiful and sometimes haunting. While there is something discernably african in the melodies they transcend time and place and the 16 tracks flow effortlessly - great music for quiet contemplation and from a more shallow perspective great background dinner music that never fails to elicit a "who is this - it's beautiful" from your guests.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare and complete original ! 11 Jun 2006
By nadav haber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Emahoy Tzegue-Mariam Gebru's life is, as detailed in the informative booklet attached to the CD, is very unique, filled with tragedy, courage and devotion. All of this is reflected in the music heard in this surprising CD. She was sent as a child to Switzerland, where she studied violin and piano. She continued playing the piano when she returned to Ethiopia, and then continued her studies under a Polish teacher in Egypt. When she was prevented from studying music in Britain, she chose the life of a nun. Her musical tastes are first and foremost Beethoven, Strauss and Chopin, while she has heard and liked the early Ethiopian Pop of Tilahun Gessese, Hirut Bekele, Mahmud Ahmad and Bizunesh Bekele. She is influenced by the religious music of the Ethiopian church as well.

The result is an original sound. On the first track of the CD, she stays with two Ethiopian scales (Tizita and Bati), but with her approach they are given a new meaning, reminiscent of some early blues and Jazz piano.

The next 3 tracks have very little that is Ethiopian, and much that is European - paying tribute to her favorite composers, with her unique style.

From the fifth track to the end of the CD, it is a beautiful combination of all her musical influences. Her approach to composing is European - each note is planned, calculated, and written down. The Ethiopian touch is in the intervals ending the phrases, and in the rhythmic subtleties that lean to a 3/3 meter.

Throughout, her life's rich experience fills the music with sadness, tragedy and beauty. This is necessary music for all lovers of music - the experience of this music simply cannot be found anywhere else !

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and Etheric Mix of Debussey, Ethiopia, and the Blues 22 Dec 2009
By achdukleidustein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have never heard anything like this before, and doubt i will in the future from anyone else. This music is charming, relaxing and interesting. It has affected how i play the piano myself. I love it.

If Mississippi John Hurt had played the piano, and been from Addis, it would have sound something like this.

this new volume reveals an astonishing beauty that the world has been deprived of until now... just like the editorial review says, it is like an ethiopian Satie...

5.0 out of 5 stars a genius 10 Jan 2008
By peterserious - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Not just Satie, but Art Tatum: she had a similar genius for absorbing multiple disparate musical traditions and synthesizing them into a revelatory blues. Gorgeous.
