’Reconnection’ is a sharing of my inward journey back to myself — my true self.
It doesn’t matter how many times I have to click, as long as each click is a mindless, unambiguous choice.
Never fall in love with an idea. They’re whores. If the one you’re with isn’t doing the job, there’s always another.

Photography is the simplest thing in the world, but it is incredibly complicated to make it really work.
The Reconnection Tour - In collaboration with Moving on Music & The Arts Council ACNI. The long awaited debut album 'Reconnection' tells the story of Ruth's reconnection with the music that has resonated with her most over the years, having taken a break from the pressures of life as a concert pianist. Moving on Music & The Arts Council ACNI are delighted to support Ruth as she tours her new album, which includes works by Debussy, Piazzolla, Rachmaninoff and Philip Glass
Stylistic variety is seamlessly blended throughout in intelligently proportioned playing as sincere as it is supple. More please!
The emotion can be felt through every note. Ruth's performances of Clair de Lune and Rachmaninov's Vocalise, Op. 34 No 14 are all my all time favourite works. An amazing selection of repertoire, I could listen to this all day...Reconnection is a must have!!
On my first listen of the album, and enjoying it so much, that it's bringing tears to my eyes. Beautiful playing from Ruth, and a wonderful collection of pieces. Very atmospheric, and brings a wonderful peace to the heart. Highly recommended!
This is a beautiful album. A great selection of pieces that are so emotional and serene. Each one is played to perfection , I just love Oblivion but each one is a favourite. I enjoyed every moment . Listening to this album is the perfect way to relax the mind. An amazing performance from such a talented lady .
This is a beautiful album from start to finish,It is wonderfully soulful and a pleasure to listen too. I thoroughly recommend this album and would invite anyone to listen and enjoy Ruths playing in an album I have fallen in love with.
