Gifts From Crows – A Persistent Dream

“The neoclassical melody that arouses sincere emotions inside, it is able to bring to tears and wake up all the most beautiful that is in your heart. A beautiful sequence of chords and an all -consuming atmosphere that affects its energy!” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Неоклассическая мелодия, которая пробуждает внутри искренние эмоции, она способна довести до слёз и разбудить всё самое прекрасное, что есть в вашем сердце. Красивая последовательность аккордов и всепоглощающая атмосфера, поражающая своей энергетикой!”

This piece was originally composed for solo piano and explores the way in which our subconscious minds influence our waking lives. A persistent dream can be a positive hope but also a fear or an omen. This version was arranged for 2 cellos, piano and double bass and tends towards the latter mood.

In many cultures across the world, birds of the corvid family such as ravens and crows have long been signifiers of loss and foreboding, and yet their symbolism is complex. As talking birds they can also represent prophecy and insight connecting the material world with that of the spirits.

This is the first track from the new album Etudes of the Crow and each piece will be presented in piano, orchestral and ambient versions, a concept that encourages innovation from the composer. The other 2 versions will be released in the coming weeks.
