Minimalist neo classical track, featuring piano and violin. A soft arpeggiated piano intro lays the bed for a whistful solo violin entry, full of yearning and reflection. Interpersed with pizzicato, it's the violin that sings the song over the ever constant piano accompaniment, creating a feeling of suspense, wonder and fragility. A dark piece full of intrigue.
Gothic orchestral romance at its fullest and darkest. Deep, rich tones from the legato strings, playful glockenspiel motifs and elegant, metronomic piano themes melt together in a swirling pot of mystery and suspense. Timpani hits and string shorts add drama, harp glissandi adds sparkle, chordal modulations add intrigue - and a final solo violin and piano section adds a touch of tragedy to complete the story. Deeply passionate and compelling.
Light orchestral track of 2 contrasting halves. A soft piano intro sets a pensive tone as the piece builds up, using a delicate solo violin to enhance the mood and woodwinds and strings to grow intensity. As the track continues, so the mood changes as it swoons into a full orchestral celebration of romance and dance, using dynamic strings - shorts, pizzicato, legato and tremolo - over a supportive orchestral backdrop including piano and marimba. What starts as reflective and fragile transforms into an uplifting, romantic and joyous piece.
A soft, mid paced orchestral track with a sombre side. A gentle, pulsating string and harp intro featuring solo viola, cello and oboe flourishes into life with string shorts, harp glissandi and orchestral runs before dying down again for the ending. Good use of the vibraphone creates a dreamlike quality to help set an intense, melancholic and nostalgic mood, tinged with a sense of reflection and regret.
Contemporary classical duet for piano and flute. Slightly ethereal, slightly playful, its diversity mainly comes from rhythmic changes, dynamic variety and chordal dissonance. Soft, dreamy passages lead to fast, aggressive hits and steady rolling motifs change to uneven, juxtaposed off-beat rhythms to form a modern, classical piece that hints at a sombre, downtrodden mood with a carefree, optimistic side.
Enchanting orchestral piece. A calm and relaxing piano intro builds through light strings and brass into a fairytale of regal elegance, further enhanced by the spirited glockenspiel. Brass fanfares, sweeping strings, fast violin motifs, timpani and percussion all create a ceremonial feel to this grand, uplifting track. 3 distinct sections give variety to the music, ending with a classic fanfare.
