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.
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.
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".
Relaxed and emotional chill out. Magic atmosphere.
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.
Oversize at its best - only open sound with very few accents, no beats
XXL track. Fantastic background for all kinds of wellness, relaxation and meditation instructions. Quiet, soft and floating.
A dreamjourney back to ones own childhood, playing under a blue summer sky amidst a colorful field of flowers.
Get on the rickshaw and enjoy the ride through Delhi. Positive Indian background music with an exotic flavor to it.
This song, carried by piano, acoustic guitar, pads and soft percussions, is very smooth and emotional. Positive and empathic.
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.
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.
