Description of Heroes & Heroines by Robert Ashford
Robert Ashford's music will appeal to anyone who loves melody.
Robert Ashford's CD, Heroes and Heroines, is aired on over eighty radio stations. For over a decade, this CD has received continuing air play and earns steady royalties. What is its secret? Beautiful melodies and sweet harmonies that are imediately appealing and that grow on you the more you hear them.
Robert Ashfords compositions are "contemporary classical" only in the sense that they are of recent creation; but they are rich in the melodic and harmonic traditions of the past. Building on traditions of seventeenth, eighteenth, and eary nineteenth centuries), his music is reminiscent of renaissance, baroque, classical and early romantic music; and yet his melodies are fresh and distinctive, unmistakeably the work of composer with an original voice. They appeal not only to classical music lovers who prefer earlier classical music, but also to those who love easy listening, new age, musicals, soft rock and ballads--anyone who loves beautiful melody. Ashford's music is calming and centering; it promotes concentration and is good for children.
