This classically trained pianist from Germany has been creating music for several decades. A good portion of his recordings are well represented by Real Music dating back to 1998 with a total of six recordings with the label. While there have been other recordings predating 1998, Touched by Love is an effort to give you a good overview of the six released on the Real Music label, plus there are two new, previously unreleased tracks, “Memories of a Cherry Tree” and “Hope,” both consistent with Koch's inconspicuous, pastoral and uncluttered nature of music.
Whether or not the two new songs will be enough to entice fans to make this purchase, those not familiar with his music will find this a great place to start. If you're looking to escape, then Koch's uncomplicated soundscapes found here is your perfect getaway.
