The haunting refrains of this latest offering from Mihail Tarlev floated over me this
morning, I thought about the days when I travelled extensively, and I pondered
my current location to that of my family, and understood that this title and
its contents created a mini soundtrack for those mental perambulations of mine.
Oltremare whilst being a colour is an Italian
word that means overseas, and regarding myself that is totally true, Tarlev has
also manifested on felt piano a very listenable and captivating arrangement,
one I have listened to at least seven times in a row now.
The gentle and emotive performance is smooth and beautifully
performed, and leaves one with a mood of passive reflection and acceptance. I
have been hearing some encouraging creations on felt recently, and this track
is certainly one of the most accomplished and enjoyable this year with ease.
Oltremare by Mihail Tarlev is a romantic composition, one that almost captures
the tenderness and delicate structures of compositions penned by the master Felix Mendelssohn, this piece is utterly
beautiful and should indeed be a big hit for anyone who desires to be filled
with music that is both exquisite in tone, and in timbre.
