Bruno Bavota’s album getting rave reviews!!
It is the music of sunlit blue-green water, gently rocking waves, and the life affirming sound of the surf washing up against the beach. Perhaps Bavota would also agree with author Isak Dinesen who once said, “The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea”.

"Overall this is a really good effort,the album as a whole flows very well, giving us different lovely relaxing classical pieces and is a good album to unwind to. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to listen to some soft relaxing classical music."
"‘The Secret of the Sea’ comes across as a lovely and relaxing album that certainly does manage to achieve what it set out to do. 4 / 5"

"Bruno Bavota is both minimalist and terribly moving, melancholic melodies that leaving too much room to welcome ramblings of the soul."
"The Secret of the Sea’, Bruno Bavota, is one of those magical, essential records, you need to keep in mind not to lose sight of one of the most interesting pianists of the last years"
"The Secret of the Sea” seems to harmonize with those sentiments as it no doubt represents a great deal of creative sweat on the part of the artist, and I would not be surprised if more than a tear or two were shed in the making of this enchanting album"
"Bruno Bavota has really outdone himself: he’s returned to the sea to be reborn with a new life. And, chasing his dreams as a stubborn captain and eager to discover new lands, he has allowed and will continue to allow all of us to regenerate with him."
"A typical Bavota setting is rooted in strong melodies and radiates joy, melancholy, and wistfulness. Those distinctive melodic gifts are on full display in a soothing setting such as “Me and You,” consistently harmonious sound, and one often uplifting. Bavota approaches his music with the mindset of a story-teller, someone intent on distilling a sweeping narrative into concise musical form."
