One Last Look Behind

Difficulty level: Very advanced | Three pages

One Last Look Behind is melodic piece full of nostalgia, mixed with both sorrow and joy. It’s about memories and the past, looking back before moving forward to something new.

Listening to this composition you can probably tell that I love Sergei Rachmaninoff‘s music. His music has the kind of melodies, the sweet chromatic harmonies and overtly romantic, sometimes sentimental character that I’m going for here. Have I succeeded in capturing something of those aspects of his music? You be the judge.
