The First Morning

In her solo piano CD, The First Morning, Anne Marie shares her profound love for family through a series of soulful improvisations. “These pieces span a decade of my life. They are a memoir of my deepest sorrows and finest joys. With a heart full of gratitude, I set these gifts free”. Along with 11 originals, she offers arrangements of “Morning Has Broken” and “I Danced in the Morning” (Simple Gifts). In her music you'll hear compassion and empathy. These songs are born in stillness. In her liner notes she refers to one of her pieces as “one of those moments when the piano started a conversation with me, and so we spoke.”

REVIEW

“You write beautiful music. Music that soars, sings, reaches for the sublime... A musical voice that is rich from life’s experiences... A music that comes straight from the heart, and speaks directly to the hearts of many.” ...“Your sense of timing is impeccable.” ...“The music is always alive, dramatic, and keeps the listener alert. All these are precious characteristics of a true talent, a real artist. By the way, you also play beautifully!”

- Thomas Oboe Lee, Composer/Professor, Boston College

“The piano instrumentals in Anne Marie David’s ‘The First Morning’ will breathe peace into your soul. This CD has calmed me down in traffic jams, lightened my load when grieving for a friend, and provided beautiful background music in my house. David’s piano playing is a transparency for the joys of the spirit -- but never too ethereal to grasp. There’s plenty of romance in her fluid riffs and melodies. One of my favorite songs of all time, ‘Birch Pennings’, transports the listener to the spring forest where her husband proposed on a piece of birch bark. Do your soul a favor and buy this CD. You’ll feel better every time you listen.”

- Sara Hunter, Writer/Producer

“Appropriately titled, Anne Marie David’s ‘The First Morning’ floods the heart with all the possibility of a new day. Her original compositions spill over with insight and passion, and her graceful caressing of the instrument draws you into a special place of warm solitude. Anne Marie’s music is sensitive and hopeful, atmospheric and tranquil. And then, in the next breath, itis lighthearted, pure and uplifting. ‘The First Morning’ is a melodic moment and it is profound introspection. You will lose yourself in this elegance of sound, and you will find yourself, too. I played the first cut this morning for cool down in my fitness class. It is music to read to, music to reflect on, music to simply be with. Anne Marie, you are talent defined!”
