Carousel of Life
There is something truly special about a Lisa Swerdlow composition, each time I hear another one, the arrangements get more symphonic, or perhaps in the case of this new single more cinematic.
Carousel of Life sums up the situation that life on our world finds itself in, one that is struggling to find a new way to be, and one still holding onto fond memories of the past.
The simply moving and melodic structures of this arrangement are both scene setting and quite emotive at times. Swerdlow’s stature as a composer has grown and moved hand in hand with her crafted ability on the piano; and here we have it all, a little reflection, a sense of fun days gone by, and the most important thing of all, hope.
A guaranteed hit from a pianist and composer who is clearly in touch with her musical muse at all times.
