Hi....
This is definitely the cure-all for a 4 am start to a day.

It's a lovely piece with just the amount of cello to fit the mood and ambience whilst slowly letting the piece envelop me.

Take care.

Sol-i-tude
Lovely piece. The music that fits the title so well ... the mysterious combination of melancholy and lightness that can be experienced in solitude is so greatly portrayed here. BRAVO!

Ah Solitude!
Long time no see ;-/ If ever I'll encounter it again I wish this music was playing. It got to be "the" soli-tune! Thanks for sharing this lovely piano piece, not everyone can play it like this...

Take care,
Henke

Solitude, but not the sad kind...
Hi Cat. Sounds like solitude, but not the sad kind. This piece evokes feelings of contemplation and the fulfillment of being alone for a while to just let the worries of the world wash away. Lovely playing. Thanks for the D/L. Warm regards, Peter.

Solitude
Even though I'm surrounded by many others that know me and interact with me regularly, I often feel a sense of inner solitude , and honestly, I love it. This work really pinpoints that feeling. To me, it's not sad or melancholy at all. It's tranquil, contemplative, even enlightening perhaps.

This is a beautiful piece. Thanks for posting, and for allowing a download. =)

Pretty!
Really gorgeous work here, Mysti. Great use of legato. My only criticism is, there could have been a bit more expression in the string synth, with a little less of the airy high end on the reverb. The composition itself, and the playing, are spot on!

solemn solitude
It is a joy to have you exit your study and offer these gems to us, thank you. Introspective and grand at the same time.

Low Strings...
around 1:00 are just wonderful.
As Ed mentions (above), your pacing of this number is sublime. You capture solitude so incredibly well with this simple, uncomplicated reverie. It is the kind of piece that I can listen to over and over again and find new things each time. Just beautifully written...and beautifully played, too.
