So we're going to be making some changes to the Music to Fly With Confidence playlist - after a year of curating we recognize that while the idea was great and that yes - soothing piano music is a great way to calm your fear of flying - we're probably hiding our light under a bushel here…

Descend in an Airplane
This is one of those tracks that you’d put on repeat and listen until your soul gets fulfilled by emotions.
Its power is all in the simplicity of the chords and of the arpeggios. The warm sound relieves any kind of stress and helps you to clear up your mind…
Do you ever grin when you listen to music? No seriously - when you're on your own and nobody's looking and you don't need to present the mask that the world seems to need - do you ever just joyfully let your face contort and unashamedly express how music makes you feel?
Delicate, gentle, uplifting.
The piano sound resonates in my ears for minutes after the end of the song keeping my stress level very low
Wayne Wilkins is not only a sought after record producer, songwriter, and musician.
Wonderful piano patterns, mixed up with a celestial voice and a little electronic pads. Great track to take your soul even higher then the plane you’re sitting in.
Sweet, evocative, touching. One of the sweetest melodies I ever heard. Piano, strings and electronic music melts perfectly in this ballad.
Manuel Zito began playing and studying classical music at the age of five. In 2002, after listening to the Coldplay album "A rush of blood to the head" he also dedicated himself to listen and play "non-classical" music too…
A perfect mix between synth, piano, woodwinds, strings and dulcimer. Melody is hypnotical, catching, relaxing, dreamy. Perfect to let your fantasy run away from the fear of flying.
A wonderful track, melancholy and sweet. Wonderful the idea of the cello that reprises the melody made by the piano in the beginning...
Could be a sleep time story narrated by the mother to his son, and that years after the son narrates to his kids.
There’s a thing, that I like more than any other. And this is to feel relaxed.
Every time I hear this tune, I am filled with a sense of peace and tranquility.. I get rid of all sad thoughts, and I feel like in heaven...
One of the most lovely themes I heard since I started this journey as a playlist curator. This could be the perfect soundtrack for a film, is delicate and in the same time plenty of emotions.
I think this is one of the most covered songs in the world, there are more than 650 official versions recorded. It could not be different. The theme is so sweet and tender that can get directly to the heart of babies and adults…
“Oh, this is the night, it's a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte
Look at the skies, they have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella note
Side by side with your loved one
You'll find enchantment here
The night will weave its magic spell
When the one you love is near
Oh, this is the night and the heavens are right
On this lovely bella notte”
This week, I selected a mystical, sad, relaxing track written in the first years of 1900 by Thomas de Hartmann under dictation of mr. G. I. Gurdjieff, a mystic, philosopher, spiritual teacher, and composer of Armenian and Greek descent, born in Alexandrapol (yep, no commercial airplains yet!)...
Tony's music moves us into different dimensions - into worlds where our memories, stories and nostalgia find space to flourish. With each song, a simple melody finds its way into our hearts, almost bypassing the mind entirely.
Listening to this track, we hardly notice the constant crescendo of dynamics and tension.It could be the description of our breathing during the day, from the calm of the awakening to the breathlessness given by the evening fatigue.Or it could be the breath of two lovers, which evolves as the passion grows stronger.
“With my music, I like to tell a story. I sketch an atmosphere, which reflects me at that moment. However, just painting this atmosphere is not enough for me, something has got to happen. With that atmosphere as a starting point, I take off. Let go of where you were and join me on an adventure…”
Classical music and hard rock, often met. Just think about the Concerto For Group And Orchestra recorded in 1969 by Deep Purple. A masterpiece in the history of music.
Christine Browne, mixes up two of the biggest icons in these genres… and builds up a track that’s more than stick together two covers.
Here we go again with a super famous track.
This is a short one, less then 2 minutes… So simple in the chord progression, but at the same time so powerful, this is the perfect representation of the feeling you’d feel while watching a baby sleeping...
This track is about looking out from airplane windows and seeing the top of the clouds as far as your eye can see.
Piano creates a perfect harmonic carpet, mixed with a cello... and the celestial choir that underlines the melody, makes it perfect for being in the sky.
Hardly a track like this can be described.. words cannot explain what this wonderful melody will do to you mind and your body.
So, for this time, stop reading...
