New Age Piano Music - My Top Picks

When it comes to New Age piano music, I have a few favorites. In fact, there are really just 2 people that come to mind. And both of them have completely different styles. I'm speaking about George Winston and John Herberman.

George Winston literally put New Age piano music on the map. Of course, there were other's before Winston who specialized in this genre (namely Steven Halpern) but it was Winston's album "December" that skyrocketed this style of piano playing into popular culture.

To say that this music was and is different than what most people usually listen to is an understatement. And really, this kind of music shouldn't have been as popular as it was, but when this album came out in the early 1980's it captivated a large audience.
