In August 2003, Dianne released her third album, Lovesong.
As the name implies, this nearly hour-long album features
traditional songs and melodies about love, including a few
well-known tunes such as "Shenandoah," "The
Pachelbel Canon," and "Drink to Me Only with Thine
Eyes" as well as a few lesser-known tunes such as
"The Lark in the Clear Air," "The Swan,"
"Plaisir d'Amour, "and "O Mio Babbino Caro."
Lovesong utilizes Dianne's own unique style so apparent
on her first two albums, Simplicity and Tinsel…a
fusion of traditional with contemporary, and a flute tone full
of richness and character.
Each of the thirteen love-related melodies is played on
flute, piccolo, or alto flute with accompaniment of grand
piano, cello, violin, guitar, and percussion. The entirely
original arrangements are based on sentimental and romantic
melodies from folk songs, operas, ballets, and classical
chamber music. If you enjoy Dianne's first two albums, or if
you are a fan of other musicians such as Jim Brickman, Enya,
Yanni, Mannheim Steamroller, John Tesh, Lorie Line, or Robin
Spielberg, you will love Lovesong.
What makes Lovesong unique from other albums is its
"live" performance for each and every track, giving
the entire recording a sincere and expressive feeling. Anyone
who knows about the recording industry knows that recording
"live" is no small task and is virtually unheard of
in the popular music genre. With a "live" recording,
all the components must be perfect from start to finish. Each
person involved in the recording must perform flawlessly from
beginning to end and must maintain perfect interaction with
the other musicians. It certainly is more difficult to record
this way; but with the heartfelt, expressive music on Lovesong,
Dianne knew it was worth the extra time and effort. Lovesong
listeners are elated with the expressive sentiment that the
"live" recording captured. As one listener said,
"It has the feel of a marvelous, true, realistic
performance which feeds on the energy of the moment…full of
emotive nuances and spontaneous inflections."
Lovesong's sincerity will enthrall your heart and
captivate your soul. Its reflective mood will lead your
thoughts to the ones you love. Its lucidity will capture your
deepest sentiments. Its purity will express your most genuine
emotions. Its warmth will make you feel at home, safe and
Lovesong is more than an album. It's a big bear hug
from a long-distance friend. A piece of dark chocolate and a
glass of merlot. A cozy snuggle in front of a glowing
fireplace. A kiss so real you can feel it in your toes. A
candlelit dinner for two. A great bedtime story with a happy
ending. A tall glass of milk and some warm fresh-baked
cookies. A bouquet of beautiful fresh flowers. A smile from a
child. This is love. This is a song. This is Lovesong.
