A Music Box Memory

I think all of us have music box memories. I don’t mean in the literal sense, but figuratively speaking. What’s a music box memory? Music boxes are nostalgic. A vivid memory of mine is that of being a young child and being rewarded by my grandmother by allowing me to listen to her old-fashioned music boxes. They were delicate sounding, and I loved to hear them. To this day, any time I hear a music box, it brings me back to a simpler, less complicated time. A music box memory.

Hymn Of Solace

Days are getting shorter, with the curtain of night falling earlier and earlier and bringing the day to an end. A busy season is right ahead, and the news of the world lately has been enough to trip up even the most resilient among us. These are the thoughts I was thinking this past Tuesday (October 31) when I wrote this song. Everyone can use some solace right about now.

A Wishing Well

It’s been a cold and rainy weekend, so I’ve been in my studio composing and recording the whole time. I put the finishing touches on Symphony of Life and got it submitted. Today I did two piano pieces: Rainy Sunday, and A Wishing Well. Rainy Sunday was sent off to a music library, while I haven’t made up my mind yet what to do with A Wishing Well. I may just release it as a digital single for streaming and download. I can make that decision later after I listen to it a while. In the meantime, enjoy!

Symphony of Life

Several recent listings were wanting original orchestral classical pieces. I wrote a total of three of them: “Concerto for Piano & Orchestra in A Major,” “Grand Palace Waltz,” and the final and most recent one, “Symphony of Life, which I now present here. I started writing it on 10/25/17 and finished it up last night (10/27/17). Just finished the copyright registration and am posting the piece here for the first time.

Icicles In Spring

I compose a lot of music for listing briefs, which are calls for music in a certain style or that reflects a certain feel. Lately there have been calls for Christmas music, but there have also been a lot of calls for somber piano pieces. I jump at those because piano is my instrument and I love when the goal is to evoke a certain mood.

Here is the latest piano solo I wrote, a piece called Icicles In Spring.

Silent Reflections

I’ve been doing a lot of composing in the Romantic era lately. Maybe it’s my escape from the daily news of a world going evermore dark by the minute. Music always has been a form or escape in one way or another, hasn’t it? Sometimes when a piece of music has a pretty melody and kindles up a warm and comfortable feeling, for a brief moment that’s the world that exists.
