"...will appeal to fans of so-called New Age pianists such as George Winston. Sometimes drawing on her parents' East Indian heritage, Saxena knows how to conjure memorable melodies and atmospheres."

Varsha Saxena

Varsha Saxena - second generation East Indian American, currently lives in Palo Alto, California. In Hindi, her given name, Varsha, means "tiny raindrops," not unlike how her piano playing is sometimes described. Moreover, she freely draws on her family's traditional cultural background in her piano creations.

Varsha has played piano since the age of ten, when she says she was inspired to take up studies by a captivating televised performance of the legendary Horowitz.

Since then her studies have taken her through various periods in classical western literature and on to contemporary piano stylists, like George Winston.

This, her debut recording, she dedicates to her family and friends.


parting clouds - invite us out after the storm

running in the mist - thrown up by the surf, then walking and running again, down to the surf line and back - the sea, so special in any weather

rainbow bridge - we cross where the stream rushes down off the bluff - it gives way to the ascent

gulls above the bluff - hover, bob and bank off before circling around on invisible gusts, whipping past us up the cliff face

wind through the pines - when we reach the top whispers an eternal song without words

sky off the lagoon - behind the bluff, protected from the wind, calm and deep, it pulls us in

waves against the rocks - on the seaside of the bluff, where the beach runs into the headland... a drama never resolved

ebbing tide - leaves myriad pools - microcosms of sea-creature fates, left to play themselves out till the sea returns

kites flying - in the afternoon bluster - children1s imaginations soaring, as fragile as their tethered gliders

beach at sunset - end of the day, after the storm, we return
