    Arrow Three Solitudes - Piano (Sosnowski)

    Three Solitudes
    Nocturnes For Piano
    David J. Sosnowski

    I. The Church at the River
    II. By an Earthen Dam
    III. Her Hands in the Waters

    To Listen:

    My Friends:

    I've been largely away from the forum for some time;
    occupied with a development project, now complete.
    And it's well beyond time to come home to my family,
    here -- I've missed you all!

    May I also take a moment to deeply thank so many of
    you who wrote, inquiring after my wellbeing. Rest
    assured, I am well and happy -- and even better, I can
    still hit more clams in ten measures than any man has
    a right to!

    To wit and in proof, a little suite of improvised

    Needless to say, these are done live and unedited
    on the incomparable Garritan Steinway.

    Masterful improvisational job, Mr. David! I enjoyed your suite very much. The Steinway sounds very good.

    I also derived much pleasure from the "synthesized" Bach pieces on your music website.

    Thank you for posting your fine music.

    My best to you.

    I haven't been around much, either, but I am so glad I was able to catch these pieces. These were improvised? If Chopin and Keith Jarrett had a kind of meeting of the spirits, this is what it might sound like... You have done wonderful work with these pieces. They are so touching, without ever being too sentimental. They are peaceful in a way that can only be achieved by going somewhere, albeit quietly. They have direction, yet seem to have no need of hurry - that is indeed, remarkable.

    The sound you get from the Steinway is no less beautiful. All the way around, this is a gift. Thank you for that.

    Good to see you back, and that all is well.

    Truly enjoyed this.

    All the best,
    Ron Pearl

    Great to have you back David!

    I picked up on these a while back on your site - and had been waiting for them to appear here to give me the opportunity to say how much I love these three Nocturnes.

    All three twist and turn in a masterly way that holds the attention and keeps things moving. The third, I find particularly haunting and beautiful - but each is an absolute gem.

    Top marks for the Steinway also - I honestly thought this was a real piano and assumed we wouldn't get to hear it in the LR!

    Kind regards, Graham

    PS good luck with the synth project.

    Welcome back, David!

    And a great comeback it is!

    I have listened to them already once, but on this second listen they are like new discoveries.

    A lot of emotions surf and ebb taking the listener onto imaginary journeys…

    Just wonderful improvisations and I enjoyed all three of them!

    Lovely little Nocturnes they are. Very well played and
    awesome programming on the sound of the piano. I know
    you said these were played "live," but the piano output
    itself was "crafted" so well to get the response and sonority
    you desired. Great piano sound, bar none.

    Of the three, I felt I lilked No. 1 the best. While listening, I
    had the feeling that your writing was being influenced by
    the "French School;" perhaps, Debussy or one of his
    contemporaries. But, all in all, a masterful performance and
    wonderful additions to your already burgeoning composition
    library. So well done, David.

    Occasion for celebration on several counts -

    Et Lux is back, and we got 'em!

    He's surprised us with new music which couldn't have been predicted from our past experiences with music from the Sosnowski catalog. Enchanting solo Piano pieces which everyone will be the richer for having heard.

    The unique Sosnowski Synth is now available!

    It's a red letter day at the Forum, so Thank You David!

    Hi David. Welcome back! I haven't been around much in the last year - until a few weeks ago I'd just peek in now and again, maybe once every month or two (or three) to say hi.

    It is always great to hear a new Sosnowski piece. I really enjoyed these three nocturns. And improvised? Al i can say is "wow" - I wish I could play this well when I play something I know very well and wish my writting was this expressive when I take my time.

    Really enjoyed all three.
