A follow-up response to Horvat’s first solo piano album a decade earlier (I’ll Be Good
), You Haven’t Been takes on a beautiful and captivating tone. Introspective, full of hope and despair, the music looks at this storytelling pianist’s own struggles with mental health. By getting these feelings out into the world, they are given a life all their own. You leave the experience changed.
Longing, Despair, Distant, Crestfallen, a Silent Struggle – all pieces that look deep into one’s heart where there can be surprising comfort or sometimes no feeling at all. This set of 13 solo piano compositions impact audiences, young and old, immediately and very deeply. You can’t just ‘walk on by’ as you are reeled into the center of these works.
