Editorial Reviews

Product Description

There are times when a beautiful lullaby is the best of all music, and these are all beautiful.

--Jimmie Dale Gilmore, three-time Grammy Award nominee

Music that can wake you up to a peaceful place in the heart.

--Derk Richardson, Yoga Journal

Listen to this CD and try to not feel your breath deepen, your body soften, and your mind relax and begin to melt. Go ahead. I dare you.

--Sudhir Jonathan Foust, former president of Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health

The artistry of a classical musician.

The serenity of a yoga teacher.

The heart of a mom.

NIGHTINGALE, the solo recording debut of the orchestral flutist-turned-improvisational artist Sarah Swersey, cuts straight to the heart, transporting the listener on a deeply inward journey to a place of emotion and stillness.

These improvised lullabies are far from being mere sleep aids. In addition to lulling little ones to dreamland, they're ideal accompaniment for yoga (Sarah is a Kripalu- and Anusara-trained teacher), massage, meditation, and deep relaxation. And the gorgeous flute playing on the CD most definitely stands up to active listening as well.

Half of the tracks in this enchanting collection are based on traditional melodies from cultures around the world: the Yiddish children's song ''Alef Bas,'' the Sephardic lullaby ''A La Nana y La Buba,'' and ''Arrorro,'' a graceful Spanish song that Sarah used to perform in concert halls around Europe during her days as principal flutist with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Tenerife in the Canary Islands. True to her classical roots, Sarah also plays sweet variations on the Brahms Lullaby.

Perhaps most engaging, though, are Sarah's original compositions, particularly the emotionally charged 16-minute ''Nina's Peace,'' dedicated to a dear cousin who died young. Another original, ''Mozaique,'' evokes the sounds, sights, and smells of a family trip to Israel when Sarah was 7 years old.

NIGHTINGALE was co-produced by Grammy nominee David Darling, the innovative cellist who has featured Sarah's flute on several of his recordings.

About the Artist:

Sarah Swersey has performed extensively in the United States and Europe as a solo, chamber, and orchestral musician. A native New Yorker, she spent seven years as principal flutist with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Spain. Since returning to the United States, she has performed at the Lincoln Center Festival, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and the Tanglewood Music Festival. After attending a gathering of musicians sponsored by cellist David Darling's organization, Music for People, Sarah began taking musical improvisation to heart. She has since been featured on three of Darling's recordings, and Darling also is co-producer of Sarah's CD. Sarah holds degrees from Oberlin College Conservatory and Yale University School of Music. She lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, where she performs in both classical and improvisational ensembles.


Why should babies be the only ones to enjoy a good lullaby? --Bob Genovesi, Body + Soul magazine

Often wistful, often childlike (but in no way childish), the virtue of the music is its evocative simplicity. --Ray Lynch, three-time Billboard Award winner

If you've been looking for the perfect music to play during relaxation, look no further. Sarah's tranquil, transporting improvisations on solo flute (also ideal for the little ones' bedtime) ... are evocative and enchanting. --Tresca Weinstein, Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association newsletter
