A little classical piece. Sorry for not having any info on this - I looked, but couldn't find it.

Bob, this is excellent. What a great intro and ending!

A very sad and peaceful piece of music that was very well mixed.

90db,

This is wonderfully done. Has a little bit of a TSO sound to it; you weave the different sounds and harmonies of the various instruments expertly. I could easily see this as the soundtrack to a feature film. It’s a beautiful piece.

All the best,

Deej

Wow - this is stunning. Incredibly powerful, and very beautiful. It has a haunting, dark quality to it which I personally gravitate towards. The mix on this is absolutely superb too. Nothing sounds too loud, and I love the additional of the sparse percussion.

You should be really proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile

That is an excellent piece of work, love the flow and rhythm to this. The Piano's reflect so well against the back drop.

Bob,
Really well done.The melody is beautiful and the arrangement top level.
Nice percussion elements add to the mood and that thunder shower at the end feels just right for your evocative title.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Wow! That is very, very cinematic. I hope you have the opportunity to submit it to some of the libraries.

Beautifully melancholy.

Bob,

This is stunning. I don't know how you've managed it but you've captured that hint of a Russian sound that resonates so vibrantly with the title.

This definitely deserves to be in a music library waiting for some producer to stumble across it.

"Beautiful" is a word that this composition can wear proudly.

All the best,
Noel

Beautiful piece of music. Loved the melody to the song. Lots of very cool sounds surrounding and complimenting the piece. Truly an excellent listen.
