Bjorn Gottschall – “Sonnig schwarz”
-I appreciate the piano neoclassical piece for the way that it eases into transitions. There’s a sense of calm and movement at the same time. The piece makes me feel like everything’s going to be okay even if it’s not right now. I genuinely enjoy this piece and hope you will also.
Piotr Wiese – “We won’t waltz together”
-This isn’t a blues song in a conventional sense, but it carries the heartache of a blues song. The melody itself has light moments, but an overall feeling of sadness. This is one of the great wonders of music that it can capture deep emotions across time and space. Listening to this song makes me feel what the composer felt. It’s remarkable.
David Chutka – “#21”
-The phrasing on this piece is unique, which made it stand out for me. After listening to a bit of the track, I really felt the energy was powerful. It has that cinematic quality that seems destined to accompany a film or show. The piano is my favorite part, creating a hypnotic sense throughout the piece.
Stephen Packe – “As clear as a dream”
-From the first time I heard this piece, it felt familiar to me. Something about this melody feels like you’ve heard it on a film score of somewhere similiar. But as near as I can tell, this is completely original and quite inspiring. It’s right at that perfect balance of “inspire you to the conquer the day” along with “lullaby right back to sleep.” It’s great, but make sure you have half a cup of coffee in you before you play this one. It’s soooo relaxing.
Kendra Logozar – “Enchantment”
-I wouldn’t say that Kendra Logozar’s music is a blanket “yes” on our site, but it’s awfully close to it. I absolutely love this style and technique. I don’t know the technical terms for Logozar’s piano proficiency, but it’s note-perfect to me. The phrasing creates this space that allows me to think and dream like very few other composers can do. I adore this track.
