Goodbye By Richard Dillon




Richard Dillon

Written by

Steve Sheppard


This new single by Richard Dillion is a solemn and deeply moving pastiche of tone that drifts upon the misty landscapes of musical time and vibration, the hovering aspect of this new single reminds me of the style of composition once created by the composer Ravel and his arrangement called Pavane for a Dead Princess.

Goodbye is a touching manifestation of solo piano brought into this world by pianist and composer Richard Dillon. Richards’s music has been with me on this solo piano journey for many years, but in more modern times his music has continued to take twists and turns into other styles and formats, but on Goodbye he once more treats the solo piano fans amongst us with another graceful composition.

Within this song there is there is an almost imploring narrative of sound, that for one moment breaks free of its reflective mood in an effort to be heard for one last time, then Richards gentle and respectful performance continues until its departing coda. Goodbye is a solo piano single of true reflection, memory and perhaps, even acceptance will be found here hidden within.
