"Dancing bears, painted wings, things I almost remember. And a song someone sings once upon a December. Someone holds me safe and warm, horses prance through a silver storm. Figures dancing gracefully, across my memory.”
The vastity of the ocean, a piano in the middle of a green sea of grass, and some young boys playing ring-around-the-rosy. This is what I see when I listen to Pern. The track rises and falls beautifully, becoming touching and uplifting at the same time.
While the left hand rhythmically gives the time through the chords, the right hand plays a sweet melody that makes you think about freedom. If I focus on music, I instantly get transported in the middle of a road surrounded by a vast field of sunflowers.

He started studying piano at age 7. After several years, an interest in composition developed. His first – almost undocumented! – works were deeply influenced by european electronic music masters Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis.
Poetry. And magic. This is what you can find in this piano solo track. The whole song is a crescendo of overwhelming emotions, that takes you by hand and bring you far away. Let your heart get filled by this notes.
Piano and strings perfectly stick together in this amazing track. There's something in the melody that brings the listener into a state of complete relax.
The low fi recording of this track, makes the melody (if possible) able to touch listener's soul even more than if it would have been recorded on a clean, modern piano. This kind of recording, adds some nuances of melancholy to the track.
This is a track I'm particularly fond to. In fact, it's the first encounter I had with modern classical music... and it was my wife, that made me discover it. We passed hours sharing earphones, keeping our hands tight and listening to it. Since that day, my musical life changed. The notes were touching my soul so deeply that I decided to get more into it, and I started my classical piano composing experience.
An amazing game between the tones of a tender waltz and a dark ostinato. When I listen to this tune, I imagine a couple starting to dance in a very romantic way... and getting swept away from passion. A seduction game. Pure passion.
Does really exists some words that can describe this wonderful composition? In just 4 minutes, can tell the whole story of the real love. The happiest and the saddest moments we all, in our life, face. So, fly away with this super melody.
When I listen to this track, I imagine myself sitting in front of a window, being hypnotized by the movement of a little sparrow searching for food... and suddenly flying away. I continue to follow his flight as far as I can see it. This brings me in a totally relaxed mood.
A soft enchanting, melancholic piano melody, similar to poetry that takes control of your feelings and makes you think about your childhood.
This week I decided to move a little bit outside the "solo piano" boundaries of the playlist, because I find that the use of strings in this piece is simply essential and in the same time necessary to evoke your inner and deep feelings. Many of you probably will know this track as it's been used as soundtrack for an amazing fantasy video game called "Child of Light".
An easy melody that pervades your mind and reassures you if you're frightened. Or simply keeps your mind relaxed if you are not :D Perfect tune to listen while you're above the clouds... following them with your eyes.
WOW, this is a perfect track to keep your mind away from the anxiety and the fears about flying. This piano solo song is able to caress your soul, driving you in a place surrounded by light and comfortable feelings.
Optimistic mood, with a note of melancholy. A haunting melody, never mundane rhythmic statements, and some chord variations make this track the perfect travel buddy to fly with.
Close your eyes, let this wonderful music flow through your feelings. Let the notes take your soul and feel as when you were a child, listening to the lullaby to fall asleep.
We don't allow more than two tracks from any one artist on these playlists but I'm thinking of making an exception for the Neil Cowley Trio 'cos well, they're just bloody great! I remember falling in love with this track last week and it sounds even better on the 6th or 7th listen - and the video's pretty rad too.
I always had a vision for this playlist where the music would take you out from the terror of turbulence and drop you into the cool ethereal place that exists above the clouds - this is the kind of music they play up there!
The whole idea of this playlist was to find piano tracks that enveloped you in ethereal melodies and wrapped you up warm in cloud like comfort - Raplapla is a stunning example of what we were looking for.
