What was the last piece of music that inspired you?

Tell us about the piece you cannot stop thinking about!

You all know this feeling! You hear a piece of music, and suddenly a particular melodic line, a harmonic change, or the timbre of an instrument sends goosebumps all over your body!

Fo me, it was during a recording session with a vocalist performing a piece by Grieg I had never heard of!

  • Coincidentally, in the last few days, it's been another Grieg piece: His "Melody" Op. 47 No. 3 -- beautiful, elegiac, with amazing harmonic progressions.

    Hallo everyone! Yes , there is one piece. Last year I was following the Chopin Competition on youtube and on the third stage the Spanish pianist Garcia Garcia played Chopin Sonata Nr. 3. Fell in love especially with the 1. movement- with these different melodies, the chromatic parts and polyphony and this interpretation. I always come back and listen to it. Maybe 30 times since then. Brings me to another world. 💫

    Hi, Martin, Your piece Diamonds in the snow reminded me of a piece that I love which is a choral piece The Snow by Edward Elgar. It’s scored for piano, strings and voices.  We sung it in the choir that I am a member of.  I searched in vain to find an arrangement for piano only but with no luck. I thought I might have a go at arranging it myself but haven’t got round to it yet. 🙂

    It takes a certain kind of composer to just write "Chopin Mazurka Opus 17" in the middle of a score and make it work.  Shaw has inspired me to include "Insert (chopin piece)" into just about everything from comments on student papers to daily shopping lists.  Because why not?

    I've been always thinking of Chopin Sonata N.3, but in the last few days I'm a little bit more with Charles Tomlinson Griffes - The White Peacock
