Mare Insularum Pier – Hampsicora’s lament

“We all struggle among the shadows. Wondering souls taking their turn on this magical planet. Soft as rose petals sprinkled by the morning dew. The piano here really comes alive in soft gentle ways only a true master can express. ”

Song inspired by Hampsicora's failed rebellion against the Romans in 215 BC. With the piece I wanted to imagine the moment when he realises he has lost everything by looking at the smoke coming from the battlefield on which his son is also lying.
