Album Notes
Louise P. Canepa: Romanticist

"Napa Valley Serenity" recorded by the St. Petersburg Chamber Orchestra, in St. Petersburg, Russia, these original compositions are memorable, lush, melodies, highly inspired by the composer's surroundings of hills, wildlife, nature, mountains, and vineyard terrain in the rich Napa Valley wine country.

A native born of Monterey, California, Ms.Canepa is influenced by her classical piano and Italian heritage background. This soothing, peaceful recording is a must for the discriminating listener with its poignant delivery by superb, performing Russian musicians. This is a CD of beauty and sensitivity.

"Ms. Canepa's music carries the listener on a melodic journey through the Napa Valley hillsides and valleys
from the perspective of a carefree eagle in flight,"
says Katie Somple, Napa Valley Register, correspondent.

"This extraordinary CD is inspirational to say the least.
I play it in the background when I'm writing and find
it allows me to concentrate better in a more relaxed
manner. When I feel my energy lagging, I turn up
the volume and let the music rejuvenate my
creative energy which it does," says,
Eileen Malone, Author, Poet, Freelancer,Colma, CA.

CD Baby

A moving collection of original contemporary classical compositions inspired by the composer's surroundings of hills, wildlife, mountains, and vineyard terrain in the rich Napa Valley wine country. With heart-tugging Romanticism and mesmerizing sensitivity, this will be an album I will continually recommend to collectors of classical music written by living composers.


Smooth and silky. An excellent CD!

Scott MacClelland

In this CD,I certainly hear the influences behind Canepa's style and applaud her perspicacity in assimilating and making very much her own the example of others. I especially admire her musical poise, integrity and expressiveness. Her works echo the Italian--even Sicilian--sense of drama, love and tragedy; Puccini meets the godfather. Each of her works establishes a mood of its own, like a fine watercolorist does. Her native Monterey, her Sicilian heritage and innate feel for color, phrase and atmosphere honor her forebears far beyond predictable expectations. Her CDs are keepers, and sharers.

music for when your "savage breast" is in need of soothing
This is music for when your savage breast needs soothing. Its calm rhythms and hum-able melodies take me from a place of stress to one of peace. But this is not just "elevator music." Louise Canepa marries what is sometimes boring New-Age sound with Classical references. My favorite track on the CD is #6, Nostlagia," which I get on my mind and can't stop humming long after the CD has ended.

Napa Valley Serenity
This CD reminds me of Mahler and Vivaldi, my favorite composers I play especially in the morning. Ms. Canepa captures ardor and longing, nature and spirituality brilliantly. What a work to treasure and send as gifts. Leonore Wilson, poet, writer, professor
