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'.


Debussy - Arabesque No.1 (L.66 number 1) - Completely Royalty Free Music

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.

Instantly recognisable, this beautiful work by Debussy is calm and soothing yet is intensely emotional in places. French for 'moonlight', this track is relaxing, reflective and simply delightful.


Debussy - Clair de Lune - Completely Royalty Free Music

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".

Slow, ('Lent' in French), and free-flowing, this track evokes an almost daydream like state. This is the first of three works to be given the name Gnossienne name by Erik Satie to reflect this new style of composition.


Satie - Gnossienne No. 1 - Completely Royalty Free Music

Bristling with energy, this lively waltz for solo piano surges with huge confidence and presence. Requires great skill from the performer to keep up with the pace. Regarded by some as the first of Chopin's waltzes to be published.


Chopin - Grand Valse Brilliante Opus 18 in E flat major - Completely Royalty Free Music

One of Chopin's twenty four preludes which starts very quietly. A note repeats like the pitter-patter of raindrops. A more intense section rises like a heavy storm shower before fading away to leave us with the soft sound of the light raindrops again.

The third in a series of highly expressive and free-flowing compositions by Satie is again at a slow pace like the first one. This gives the track a sombre and hypnotic quality. Creates an almost haunting atmosphere.


Satie - Gnossienne No. 3 - Completely Royalty Free Music

The most famous of Liszt's Liebestraums. A popular melody which flows along with grace and elegance. Widely used in advertising, films and TV, this loving and emotional piece is perfect for giving an emotional and intense sensitivity to all projects and productions.


Liszt - Liebestraum No.3 (S.541 number 3) - Completely Royalty Free Music

A very popular composition which has been used on countless productions and adverts. A lilting melody above a waltz like accompaniment gets more complex and intense as we're taken on an emotional journey.


Chopin - Nocturne Opus 9 No.2 in E flat major - Completely Royalty Free Music

One of the most famous pieces of music for solo piano. Despite having the instruction, 'Lent et douloureux', (slow and painfully), this track is referred to for calm, relaxing and meditative purposes. Atmospheric and ambient.


Satie - Gymnopedie No.1 - Completely Royalty Free Music

Slow and grave, ('Lent et grave'), the third Gymnopedie is perhaps the most heartbreaking. The whole ambience is punctuated by mournful melodies that have become so popular in modern productions.


Satie - Gymnopedie No.3 - Completely Royalty Free Music

Light and calm, this is a wonderful track for tender moments, romance, weddings, sentimental nostalgia and background music .This familiar piano solo by J.S.Bach is from the first book of 'The Well Tempered Clavier'.


Bach - Prelude No.1 in C Major BWV 846 - Completely Royalty Free Music

A mood of intense yet subdued emotion marks the overall feeling of the second Liebestraum composed by Liszt. More dynamic than the first and third parts it shows a less confident side whilst still retaining its passion and sentimentality.


Liszt - Liebestraum No.2 (S.541 number 2) - Completely Royalty Free Music

The first of Liszt's Liebestraums, (Dreams of love), is a delicate and tender piece. Always light and very spacious it sets the tone for the three works as a whole. Wonderful for romantic segments, weddings and nostalgic memories.


Liszt - Liebestraum No.1 (S.541 number 1) - Completely Royalty Free Music

A fast, dramatic and energetic end to the famous Moonlight Sonata. The third movement moves along at a great pace, (presto agitato - which means fast, in a hurry and agitated). The pianist gives a fantastic rendition of this high tempo work. 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".

21. Satie - Je te Veux 05:19

A waltz for solo piano which conjures up images of Paris and popular song around 1900. The title translates into, 'I Want You', and reflects the sentimental nature of the track. A wonderful backdrop for European productions.
