About the Album

This album is Annie’s first in over twenty years and her first ever solo piano album (see reviews by Steve Sheppard and Kathy Parsons below).

She has written and improvised many pieces for piano since she started composing. The tracks on this album form a spectrum from her earlier pieces to more recent ones, with plenty left over to fill quite a few more albums! She also plans to orchestrate some of the pieces later.[ A Glimmer of Hope ]

Detailed information on the 13 tracks can be found in the 4-page liner booklet

I’m  really delighted to have been accepted to have tracks from this album played regularly on EPR (Enlightened Piano Radio).

This is a wonderful streaming radio station started and run by a co-op of like-minded composer/pianists.
For 24 hours a day it broadcasts new piano music aimed at de-cluttering the mind, lifting the spirits, and massaging the soul! [ A Glimmer of Hope ]

Album review by Steve Sheppard of One World Music Radio

Album review by Kathy Parsons

A Glimmer of Hope is British composer/pianist Annie Locke’s fourth album, but it is her first release in more than twenty years and her first solo piano collection.

The thirteen original pieces on the album range from earlier compositions up through more recent work. The music is warm and personal, and there is a comforting touch in all of the pieces. [ A Glimmer of Hope ]

    Dear Annie,

    Congratulations on producing such a beautiful new album. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to A Glimmer of Hope, I really love it! I have my favourite tracks..Honour-piano version, Riding Through Montana and Holiday in Shanghai and the more I listen to A Man Called Alan, the more majestic it sounds. Your music is an inspiration to me…I look forward to hearing lots more!

    Thank you for my copy of your album – I have just listened to it all and really loved it.

    It’s difficult to have one favourite piece from your album – I was quite affected by ‘Deep in the forest’ and also ‘Towards the Summit’ sent me soaring! But each of the pieces were so different and……I thought them all really ‘full of music’ – if that means anything to you!!

    I wish you every success with ‘A Glimmer of Hope’ – you deserve it.
