Below is a commentary by the label.

"I wanted to make music that was useful," says Margaret. Romantic Piano is interesting, soothing, patient and incredibly moving.

Margaret's debut, There's Always Glimmer, was lyrical and wonderful, but an illness on tour prevented her from singing, and she produced an ambient album, Mia Gargaret (another cheeky title!).Romantic Piano also has almost no words. "Composing instrumental music is generally a lot more fun than lyrical songwriting, and that process ultimately influences my writing."Margaret's work is more of a songwriter, but this Romantic Piano cements her as a composer.

Margaret originally intended to pursue a degree in composition, but dropped out of music school. “I really hated playing in orchestras,” she says. "

Romantic Piano certainly touches on rare sensations in art often reserved only for cinema - the wide-lens awe of existence and the verbalized, lingering in our skulls. At the same time with the intimate inner monologue after.How romantic! "

"At first, Gia Margaret called her new album 'Romantic Piano' to be a bit cheeky. , say, a cozy and candlelit date night. But in that cheekiness lies hidden intention: across the gorgeous set, “Romantic” is suggested in a more classic sense, what the Germans call waldeinsamkeit. Its compositions conjure the sublime themes of the Romantic poets : solitude in nature; nature's ability to heal and to teach; a sense of contented melancholy.

"I wanted to make music that was useful," says Margaret, vastly understating the power of the record. 'Romantic Piano' is curious, calming, patient and incredibly moving — but it doesn't overstay its welcome for more than a second.

Margaret's debut, 'There's Always Glimmer,' was a lyrical wonder, but when an illness on tour left her unable to sing, she made her ambient album 'Mia Gargaret' (another cheeky title!) which revealed a keen intuition for arrangement and composition not fully shown on 'There's Always Glimmer's lyrical songs. 'Romantic Piano', too, is almost totally without words. “Writing instrumental music, in general, is a much more joyful process than I find in lyrical songwriting“The process ultimately effects my songwriting.” And while Margaret has more songwriterly material on the way, 'Romantic Piano' solidifies her as a compositional force.

Originally pursuing a degree in composition, Margaret dropped out of music school halfway through. “I really didn't want to play in an orchestra,” she said of her decision, “I really just wanted to write movie scores. to focus more and more on being a songwriter. 'Romantic Piano' scratched an old itch.” 'Romantic Piano' does indeed touch on a rare feeling in art often only reserved for the cinema — a simultaneous wide-lens awe of existence and the post-language intimate inner monologue of being marooned in these skulls of ours.
