An Immersive Musical World for the Andrew Wyeth Centennial:

Combining live performance, commentary on Wyeth philosophies and art that inspired the music, surround recordings, and video with Wyeth paintings and nature photography, Catherine Marie Charlton, a neo-classical pianist known for her quietly spacious, meditative compositions, teams with Grammy® winning producer and engineer Phil Nicolo and a musical ensemble of friends to present music from Charlton and Nicolo’s multi-year collaboration, I Dream About This World — The Wyeth Album.

Charlton's 12th release in a 20+ year career, I Dream About This World embodies the creative expansion of the mind, and forms a soundtrack for introspective exploration of private thoughts, painting a musical world where the listener can escape this 'busy, bustling life' as N. C. Wyeth called it 100 years ago.

The recording will be available for purchase the night of the concert and features collaborations with several New Age GRAMMY® Award-winners — cellist David Darling, English horn player and producer Nancy Rumbel, and producer Will Ackerman, as well as a world premiere of music composed by Andrew Wyeth’s sister, Ann Wyeth McCoy. The CD is accompanied by Charlton’s 80 page book, with extensive and beautiful liner notes and images, co-written with former Philadelphia Inquirer art critic, Catherine Quillman, and features three generations of Wyeth paintings.

Catherine Marie Charlton is a Steinway Artist and Independent Music Awards winner who is noted for her classically-based improvisations bridging Jazz and New Age styles. The New York City Jazz Record says her “crystalline style… soars”. Charlton has won numerous grants, residencies, and awards including those from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Delaware Division of Arts, and the Parents' Choice Foundation. She currently serves on the Board of Governors of the Philadelphia Chapter of The Recording Academy.
