Addicted to Piano Music

I had this music for years but never cared to listen to it until just couple of months ago. When one night my nephew just refused to sleep and we couldn't figure out a way to make him fall asleep. My cousin finally put this on and it calmed the kiddo down like drinking a glass full of warm milk makes you fall asleep at night. Ever since then I've become a fan of Ernesto Cortazar. In fact, I am getting so addicted to listening to piano since then that I've started listening to more and more piano songs in Hindi film music as well.

Most of Ernesto Cortazar music is instrumental & piano music. Here's some info I found on the composer and some of his beautiful pieces that some folks have incorporated with their favorite photos and created videos of.

Ernesto Cortazar was a Mexican Pianist and composer. He was born in 1940. He started his music career in Mexico at the age of 18 composing the background music for the motion picture “La Risa de la Ciudad”. Since then, he has created the background music for more than 500 motion pictures. He has traveled to more than 25 countries to perform as he only knows. He gave concerts at very important places as The Kremlin (USSR), The Mexican Presidential House and others. He also has performed for very important people as Charlton Heston, Danny de Vito, Michael Bolton, Octavio Paz, The Rolling Stones, President Menem (Argentina), Nikita Krushev (USSR) and more.
