"Hawkins' dreamy piano touch is often sensual and compelling, but an equally engaging part of this thoughtful excursion is hearing and reading the names of the exotic instruments she uses to enhance her super melodic thought process." — Jonathan Widran, Music Connection magazine

"600 Years In A Moment is a masterful melange of superlative musical performance; stunning contemporary composition, and widely diversified cultural influences. ... Fiona Joy Hawkins has outdone herself with this release and continues to set the bar even higher in the unfolding of her creative potential." Michael Diamond, Music and Media Focus

Celtic/New Age pianist, composer and singer Fiona Joy Hawkins celebrates her most epic and significant album, 600 Years In A Moment, now on vinyl LP and Hybrid Multichannel SACD.

"I have often wondered how globalization effects music and how history changes our perception of instruments and the musical culture of our ancestors," says Hawkins.

Hawkins recorded 600 Years In A Moment around the world from Newcastle Australia; Los Angeles; New York; Bremen and Portland, Maine; Halifax, Canada; and Imaginary Road Studios in Vermont. The album was recorded using a contemporary Australian Stuart & Sons piano with ancient instruments from around the world.  Hawkins' concept is to bring instruments and their unique sounds from villages across the globe to a modern musical setting to explore those cultures' hidden musical treasures.

Contributing artists include Rebecca Daniel (Australian Chamber Orchestra), Eugene Friesen (Paul Winter Consort), Tony Levin (Paul McCartney), Jeff Haynes (Pat Metheney), Heather Rankin (Rankin Family), Marc Shulman (Suzanne Vega), Paul Jarman, Phil Aaberg, Alfredo Rolando Ortiz and many others give the album its historic value and grace.

MW3e writes "Ms. Hawkins joins forces with the production team of Windham Hill Records founder Will Ackerman and Corin Nelsen and the results provide yet another winning instrumental album that combines modern classical, jazz and World Music. Although based in Australia, Fiona is on track towards becoming a world wide music phenomenon and the release of 600 Years In A Moment only enhances that fact. Featuring Fiona performing her hand made Stuart & Sons piano, 600 Years In A Moment finds Fiona in the studio backed up by a number of veteran musicians including Will Ackerman, Eugene Friesen (cello), Todd Boston (wooden flute), Marc Shulman (guitar), Tony Levin (bass guitar) and a whole lot more. A sense of floating, sonic timelessness is rooted at the core of 600 Years In A Moment."
