“Ringing Bells & Falling Stars” is the title of my new EP, a little Christmas project, as I like to do every year in this period. It includes just 2 tracks and “Falling Stars” is the second one.
It’s a very quiet and peaceful piece, composed thinking of a cold Christmas night, during which falling stars appears and disappears in the dark and in the silence. The main theme is a sequence of glissando on the notes of a scale in Bb; it sounds piano and pianissimo and has much breaths from a section to another, to reach the feeling of suspension under that magical moment, when light switch on the darkness for few seconds.
It belongs to a larger project in being, built over the years and that includes several original Christmas songs for solo piano, linked each other by their titles.
The track was added to an editorial Spotify playlist, “Classical New Releases“, reaching a very large audience and being much appreciated.
