It's my Way to Paradise

© 2014/2024 Michael Hüter

One day I had the dream to produce a CD with my own music. Deep inside I knew what the music should be - something pure and for me absolutely perfect. I started a long and sometimes troublesome journey.

On the way I met many wonderful people but others just disappeared. From time to time I felt very lonely and I lost everything that was mine or of some importance to me. Again and again I even had to stop playing the piano. So I experienced the most painful and the happiest moments of my life. Then as a surprise I found something that I had not particularly strived for: love.

My journey went on for 16 years and then I held the dream in my hands I once had had. It was the CD: “It’s my way to paradise”. Sometimes we yearn for something but fate says it is not meant for us there and then. Sometimes we don’t know where and when our way will start or end. But everything we do for love, gratitude or joy will be eternal.

It’s my way to paradise should encourage all that seek to go their own way inspired and full of power.

Bach, Grieg, Schuhmann or Liszt may be elicited from Michael Hüter’s pianistic style, perhaps even a blues feeling. The audio CD consists of recordings dating from 2004 to 2010. It is among the most beautiful solo piano publications in a long time. Enchanting, atmospheric, diversified, beautiful piano music for sensitive listeners.
