A beautiful, flowing introduction leads us into a magical fantasy. Sweet and tender, this is the first of Debussy's 'Deux Arabesques'. Written in E major and played at a slow tempo it gives a regal, emotional tone. Widely used in popular culture such as in TV themes and advertising. It has also been sampled by Alicia Keys and used in the video game 'Final Fantasy V'.
The minor key of this waltz gives the piece a melancholic, almost sad feel. The soloist plays at a medium tempo without straying too far from the initial melody, then a more optimistic section lifts the gloom before it returns to melancholy to finish.
The first movement of this instantly recognisable piano sonata starts off quietly to set a calm, delicate and slightly melancholic tone. As the emotions rise and fall, the intensity swells and diminishes gracefully. The Piano Sonata No. 14 op. 27 no. 2 in C sharp minor by Ludwig van Beethoven, completed in 1801, is also known as the Moonlight Sonata. Beethoven himself gave his work the nickname Sonata quasi una Fantasia ("... quasi a fantasy"). The term "Fantasia" refers to the unusual sequence of movements of the sonata. This explains the untypical tempos of the respective movements for the conventional sonata form. The work does not have a first (fast) movement in sonata form, which sonatas of this period usually contain. It begins with an Adagio, followed by a more lively Allegretto with Trio, followed by a fast, highly dramatic Finale, which has the structure of a sonata-form. What is striking here is that the tempo increases from movement to movement. Franz Liszt characterized the piece by describing the second movement as "a flower between two abysses".
The dawning of stars, number 2
Traditional Irish/Celtic music piece featuring Irish flute, soft pad and guitar. This piece starts slowly and shifts to a faster section later on.
Relaxed, ambient piano track with occasional acoustic guitar notes and soft pads. Melancholic, tender, impressionistic, inviting. A time for quiet reflection. Semi-classical; reminescent of the works of Erik Satie and Brian Eno. Available is also an alternative version which cuts out the pads, leaving only the piano and guitar.
Extra-long meditation track for a fast recovery. Refill your energy tank!
Vivid mixture between folky singer songwriter guitar parts and modern, hymnic pop rock. Compelling, fresh sound for lifestyle, sports and adventure!
This song, carried by piano, acoustic guitar, pads and soft percussions, is very smooth and emotional. Positive and empathic.
A strong raising orchestra track in the style of "Jaws". At around 1:00 a new mood is presented to the listener: sorrow and desperation.
Dancing melodies bounce and sparkle in this glorious waltz for piano. A calmer section allows you to get your breath back before reverting to its sprightly and up-tempo feeling.
Piano, percussion, bass and drums build the basis for a friendly flute-melody.
Beckoning, Elusive, Serene
A romantic reflective Irish song. Featuring flute, penny-whistle and cello.
Modern and edgy rock track. Strong and confident sound with crunchy guitars and raw sounding drums. Heavy but not over-powering, strong but not dominant. Great for projects looking for a modern sound.
Melodic, slowly soaring piece that brings a feeling of vast mountains or fields. Inspirational and majestic, reminescent of the sound of Vangelis. Also good for underwater and nature footage.
Spacious and ethereal electronic/ambient soundscape in the Bladerunner/Vangelis style
understated cosmopolitan World Fusion Mix with didgeridoo, choir and futuristic percussion
