A double album with my own solo piano variations of clearely defined, traditional Advent songs on the first, and my personal favorite selection of clearely defined Christmas Songs on the second.
NOTES
This double album offers on the first album (track 1 - 10) my own solo piano variations of clearely defined, traditional Advent songs, and on the second album (track 11 - 19) my favorite selection of clearely defined Christmas songs! I have been sticking here to the original procedure of the church liturgy, which makes a clear distinction between songs for the Advent time, longing for the birth of the Messia, and songs for the Christmas time, which in …

Released 2016
Sandrose Records
20 essential tracks of my "electric albums" released from 2006 - 2012
NOTES
The tracks on this compilation are taken from my 5 albums I have released from 2006 - 2012, and are my personal favorites from this periode. For me, each one has this own special magic and atmosphere that gives me the feeling of a perfect transformation from my inner visions into this piece of music, which is in fact often only hardly to achieve.
It‘s also a good overview about my „electric period” where I used digital …

...until At Last, Night Closes In (Solo Piano)

by Gerald Krampl

Released 2014
Sandrose Records
Released 2014
Sandrose Records
The songs on this album are in a very melodious New Age and Neo-Classical style, recorded in one day on a Boesendorfer Grand at Theater Oberlaa in Vienna.
NOTES
After my first solo piano excursion with the “Solo Piano Collectibles” album, I received such a lot of good response and from many sides also the wish that I should do such an album with completely new songs.

I liked this idea too, started composing, and as it sometimes is in life, as soon as I had the compositions finished suddenly came the chance that I could record the album at the “Theater Kurpark Oberlaa” …

Solo Piano Collectibles

by Gerald Krampl

Released 2013
Sandrose Records
Released 2013
Sandrose Records
A Collection of Solo Piano versions of songs from my last three albums, plus three new songs.
NOTES
Aside the three new tracks on this album (No. 1,6 & 11) were all others taken from my last three studio albums. I slightly varied them sometimes, played it in different tempos and changed some single notes, but these are in fact the original bare compositions played on my old Euterpe Piano with it‘s special vintage sound, on which nearly 90% of my songs have been composed over the last 45 years!

Neo-Classical / Ambient Chamber Music reflecting scenes and imaginations from this journey full of wonders through life.

Lighthouse

by Gerald Krampl

Released 2010
Sandrose Records
Released 2010
Sandrose Records
Musical impressions with piano, strings and electronics, crossing over the boarders of classic, minimalism and ambient.
NOTES
The new album LIGHTHOUSE of Viennese pianist, keyboarder and composer Gerald Krampl can be seen as the consequent continuation of the style that he had already been beginning to develop in his last work Innocent Wasteland (CD 2009).

The nearly chamber music like structured pieces have this time no overall conceptual thematic behind them, they rather are a collection of very personal solitaire impressions which were experienced throughout the one last year. So f.e. the …

Innocent Wasteland

by Gerald Krampl

Released 2009
Sandrose Records
Released 2009
Sandrose Records
Piano and strings based classical minimalism meets with ambient electronic and nature sounds
NOTES
“Classic & Minimalism meets Electronic”

This could possibly be one short description for the new album release of Viennese pianist, keyboarder and composer Gerald Krampl.

With INNOCENT WASTELAND he has this time radically turned away from commercial concessions like radio playability, easy accessibility, clear song structures etc., in favor of a more free, elemental musical understanding.
The music stays aside the electronic tunes on a minimalistic base of piano and a maximum of two more synthetic …

Released 2008
Sandrose Records
"Electronic soundscapes for mind movies" in a vintage '80s style.
NOTES
One possible description for this album could easily be „Soundtrack For Mind Movies“ – by merging elements of ProgRock, Electronic and E-Lounge, with many classical vintage sounds, marks this album a step back to Gerald´s original musical roots. Reminds a bit on his progrock times of the `70s and `80s with his bands Kyrie Eleison and Indigo, though with some more modern influences from bands like Air, Dead Can Dance, Mike Oldfield etc. This album …
