Peter Kater

Pianist/composer Peter Kater is known for his scores for television, film, and theater, as well as for his own recordings of light jazz and new age music. Born in Germany, Kater moved from Munich to New Jersey when he was four. He began piano lessons three years later and studied classical music until taking up rock & roll in his early teens. At the age of 18, Kater moved to Boulder, CO, where he played improvised music and lived for over a decade before moving to rural Virginia, where he built Earth Sea Studios. Until the opening of Earth Sea in early 1997, Kater had recorded exclusively for the Silver Wave label, starting with his debut release, Spirit, in 1983. He went on to release over 20 albums on Silver Wave, including highly successful collaborations with R. Carlos Nakai that resulted in, among others, How the West Was Lost, Vols. 1-2 and Migration (1992), which also received the NAIRD Best New Age Album Indie Award. Several of Kater and Nakai's recordings rose to the Top 20 of Billboard's new age chart, and a few of Kater's own releases -- which range from solo to quintet lineup -- have charted in the Top 25. Since starting his Earth Sea label, Kater has released records that include 1998's Compassion and another collaboration with Nakai entitled Winds of Devotion (1999). Source Music put out Heart's Desire in early 2001, and Inner Works: Piano & Strings, Red Moon, and Xmas Ecstacy arrived during the following years. In 2005 Kater issued the four-part Element Series: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire, the last of which landed him a Grammy nomination for Best New Age Album. Subsequent albums Faces of the Sun (2007), Ambrosia (2008), and In a Dream (2009), the latter of which was a collaboration with Sting guitarist Dominic Miller, received nominations as well. Kater's score for the 2010 animated film The Legend of Secret Pass found the artist working with a 70-piece orchestra and 50-voice choir. ~ Joslyn Layne, Rovi

Sunset. I happen to be doing my homework for my Disease Processes c lass that is due today and listening to this kind of music is really wonderful when you're studying. Thank you.
When I was driving truck I realized I was moving through a lot of American history, did a lot of reading and specifically Native American History. There is still a deal of it extant written by the people who lived it. The most edifying book was Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. PBS'es How the West Was Won and the music you are listening to is its result. Yahtah Kola. DMB

If you described this music with words, it would sound so cliche' as to be laughable, yet it really does bring out whatever is in your heart. For me that's praise to the Lord for how great He is and his awesome creation!
