Magnificent composition from Thomas Hewitt Jones – “First Steps Into the World”

In my years of covering neoclassical music, I rarely swoon for cinematic music in the way that I do for this piece. It has an elegant balance of melody and breezy backing strings. The mix is something that feels like it’s perfect for a movie. Just guessing from the title, perhaps this was written for a baby. If that’s the case, I can say (as a father of two) that it’s perfect for capturing that whimsical uncertainty of a baby’s first steps. The piano, strings, and overall lightness are… nothing short of magnificent.
