By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 July 2011
Format: Audio CD
Goldmund (aka Keith Kenniff) bewitched me with his 2008 album 'The
Malady Of Elegance'. His 2010 release, 'Famous Places', convinces me
further still that his work is a power for good in the listening world.

Mr Kenniff's principal instrument is the piano and we hear it at the
heart of all 15 of these enchanting pieces; augmented by subtle washes
of electronic sound; sometimes forward in the mix and at other times
submerged in cavernous, subterranean spaces, echoing beneath our feet.

The music is timeless. A piece like 'Conestoga', for example, seems
curiously familiar. Nostalgic without the slightest whiff of hokiness.
A composition full of shadows of half-remembered faces and places.
'Dane Street', too, evokes childhood memories of musical boxes and
rocking horses; its sublimely simple melody supported by the most
fragile of rhythmic patterns. Moonlight shining on silver spider webs
in a secret walled garden at midnight. Truly the stuff of dreams.

The lilting waltz-time miniature 'Grass Rides' is another understated gem.
The interplay between piano and luminous synth cadences is beautifully
conceived. So too the rumbling drone and underwater magic of 'Havelock'.

Although Mr Kenniff's inventions can sit happily in the background
minding their own business it is not their proper place. They deserve
their own special moment of dedicated, uninterrupted time, to savour
their extraordinary ability to generate complex emotional landscapes.

If, at the end of my life, I had to choose one piece of music to hear
whilst the light is fading it might well be 'Jones Beach Dunes'.

HASH(0x99ae9ec4) out of 5 stars Famous Places: Another Goldmund Gem 7 Jan. 2011
By DAVID HALL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Famous Places (August 24, 2010) is another soothing, lovely album by Goldmund, (compser/performer). That has his intimate, warm piano front and center of the music on the album. All the selections are lovely, but my favorites are the ones, for example, Pine View, on which its just the piano. Goldmund has a way of playing that almost gives one the sense that the music one hears is coming from within the listener. The piano is allowed ambient sounds, of keys striking strings, that somehow enhances and draws the listener into what is being played. All the tunes are lyrical, spare, and played at slow tempos. This a wonderful album you can listen to, or have as background while working or relaxing and/or meditating. I sampled and then purchased it on Amazon. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x99f4e75c) out of 5 stars Wonderful 16 Dec. 2011
By Laubre Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Wonderful. Wonderful. I'm a fan. Not as breathtakingly deep and heavy as the "The Malady of Elegance", it is faster, but still engrained with the same sentiment. The music, no doubt, is fresh and touching. The music opens the heart.
