Survivors By Fransoafran





Written by

This is one of the most moving slices of instrumental music I have heard for quite some time, and certainly the most poignant. This new single by Fransoafran which features Lena Matienko on piano could well have a duel meaning here, the art work clearly relates to the Australian bush fires and an animal trying to survive the flames, but could this sensitive opus also relate to us, the human animal trying to survive a global pandemic?

Whatever the tale and the truth, Survivors by Fransoafran  is a beautifully performed piece, filled with a charming but caring symphonic gestures, and a piano that takes the narration of the arrangement by the hand, and leads us forever onwards, into a deeply moving and superbly performed composition indeed.
