AUTUMN was superstar new age pianist George Winston's first album to sell more than 1,000,000 copies. Listening to these spare, emotionally rich pieces, it's easy to understand why. But it's also clear what sets Winston apart from the hordes of other new age piano soloists: an insistent--occasionally even jarring--gothic sensibility that informs his music.
Like many of his albums, AUTUMN found its inspiration in the seasonal changes wrought upon the Montana landscape that Winston calls home. Though it might be easy to pigeonhole a composition like "Woods" as easy listening, a more careful examination reveals a darker--daresay even sinister--underside, one more informed by Birnam Wood than by Hundred Acre Wood. "Stars" may bring forth images of cloud-free starlit skies, but its stirring emotionalism yearns for something more, making it difficult for a listener not to contemplate the infinitesimally small stature of human existence within an infinitely vast universe.
