« With this "Piano Panorama" Gilles von Wihl proposes to us a new collection of songs whose orchestrations have been reduced for piano.
A lot has happened in Gilles' life since his last CD. Things said, unspoken things, which his friends guessed, or thought to guess. You will find these things in his music, in his sincere texts, sometimes very romantic, sometimes hard, sometimes contemplative...

That’s the way life goes, in all its diversity.

Some artists are confused with the impulse that leads them to express themselves. In doing so, their creations give us a mirror and allow us to reconnect with buried emotions.

You will find here many different musical climates, but perhaps you will find mostly forgotten memories... »

« This autobiographical collection is by far a reflection of the personality of a man we appreciate at its right value.

His texts, written to charm us and sometimes to play with us, carry us like a slight breeze to an imaginary world which is his.

From the keen and sensual emotion of poetry, which knows how to fill us with wonder, Gilles von Wihl makes us respectfully share his dreams through his poems woven of love, hope and truths. To dream his own life is for him the key to a happy and brightened out life.

His sometimes disconcerting testimonies and his personal past life wrap us like a light cloud in order for us to experience those in the purest intimacy. Encounter, love and passion would certainly be his more beautiful signature because he is closely convinced by it. »

"Images de la vie d’un passionné" ("Life Pictures of a Passionate Man") (December 1992)

  • Number of pages : 164 (160 in French, 2 in German and 2 in English)
  • Format : 11 cm x 16,5 cm

Here is the text of the 4. cover page :

« Gilles von Wihl is a passionate man who knows what living means. He carries passion like a talisman to the stream of its existence and this one - quite precisely - impregnates the act of writing of the rope of the love. The simple images, if not banal, are those which could belong to everyman on condition that the existence of this one is struck by the touch of the magic wand whose love is the master of the magicians. It is intense and it breathes sometimes naive happiness and wonder in front of each day which is given to us to appreciate.

Wouldn’t the existence be finally in the likeness of the loved woman? Every day he should renew his love declaration to her…

Gilles von Wihl reminds us of the urgent need to love because precarious and fleeting things weave their web in our daily life to make us forget the truth of the life: the act of love, the only one which can enable us to get closer to the original creation and the eternity. »
