This collection of twelve reflective pieces for solo piano is inspired by nature and the human spirit. Each note reflects the thoughts and feelings from a moment, a day, or a season. Music is a powerful instrument to heal the deepest of wounds or simply revel in the magnificence of life. A twelve page booklet contains poetry and prose by Susan, reflecting on the mood of each piece, as well, artworks from this seasons' work.
Susan's unique style has evolved throughout her 40 years of musical expression. Classically trained in Montreal, Quebec, specializing in flute performance studies, she has enjoyed a diverse musical career: soloist, chamber and orchestral musician, church music director, choral composer, accompanist, choir member, studio musician, private teacher of flute, piano and theory. In recent years, her composing has turned towards secular, modern, emotional writing, though sacred sounds are rooted in her chords and melodies.
All music composed and performed by Susan Lapp
Ghosts of Summer’s Passing
Composer Robert Daigneault 1999
Available from The Canadian Music Centre http://www.musiccentre.ca
This CD is from a concert of short music pieces and poetry. The flute and piano pieces were composed for Susan Lapp and Valerie Nichol. The music for Walter Hickling's poetry was chosen from a collection of music sketch books. Each sketch was selected to suit the mood of the poem. Susan and Valerie improvised from these sketches, interlacing a variety of sounds and colours with words. "In Flanders Fields" for chamber choir and flute, (by Robert Daigneault) commissioned by The Guelph Chamber Choir was recorded in Chalmers United Church, Guelph.
If you are interested in music scores for the flute and piano works from Ghosts of Summer's Passing, they are available at The Canadian Music Centre https://www.musiccentre.ca

Click the link above to my Bandcamp channel for my newest music composed in 2020. I love electronic music as much as anything I compose on piano and flute. Electronic music is all around you. In movies, videos and also so much of the popular music you listen to also uses electronic sounds. Mine is great background music for any thing you are doing during the day or night.
There is lots more for you to listen to on my channel.
