This is a romantic and sentimental piano piece. It starts with a sad melody, creating emotions of sadness and retrospective, like remembering the love of your live. The melody and harmony is developed, painting the mood in all shades of gray. There is a tipping point at 2:26 – the music creates a strong expectation to the sad minor tonic, but instead there is a beam of light and the song makes a positive turn, like a nice and friendly memory coming up, just to heighten the sentiment when the melancholic feelings come back. The piece has been recorded live with a sensible and highly emotional performance. The instrumentation is homogenous and sparse, hence the music works perfect in the background, heightening the emotional content of any visuals. The melody and development is strong, so the piece can as well be used to be in the foreground.
The music works best for any project where you want to create a sentimental mood, e.g. in a love story, remembrance, old person thinking of her youth. When you think of any black-and-white sequence … this is your music!
