Violinist Daniel Kobialka offers long-form interpretations of Bach and Beethoven's most memorable melodies with IN HEAVENLY PEACE - an album that pairs healing and classical masterworks.

In each, Kobialka offers gentle, ethereal renditions of the pieces. The music is slow and expanded so that each note lingers in the ear of the listener. Soft keyboard tones, flute, mandolin and ambience add a celestial sheen to Kobialka's violin adding to the music's ethereal glow.
