A peaceful piece for string orchestra. With long sustained chords and interesting harmonies. Hope you all enjoy it 🙂

The opening is lush and smooth, like a river flowing with sadness and memories.

The harmonies around 1:20 and 1:45 are intense and intricate. Very nice!

The segue into the low strings at 2:00 offers a nice reprieve from the slicing high strings.

Wow, the transition to major at 3:00 is quite moving! 😥I had to close my eyes and just enjoy the moment!

And the switches between dissonance and resolution up until the end are quite tasteful.

Overall, another great piece! A real string orchestra would make this sound much fuller and closer to your intent, I'll bet. Great job, Samuel!

 

Cheers,

Tónskáld

I get a bit of rhythmic dissonance here with the desire to rest and the desire to move and sometimes it shifts between them a little too much for me; imagine a species counterpoint exercise moving between first and second back and forth... I get that kind of vibe from it at some points.
