Adventures in Lyricism: Redemption


This was the last song that I composed for the Suite. It is heavily inspired by the harmonic progression in Etude No.1 in E-Minor, by Heitor Villa-Lobos, which is a much more technically advanced composition than mine. At the end of the day, a piece grabs me because it is emotionally compelling, not because it requires or demonstrates advanced, difficult-sounding techniques. If I can say something I need to say simply, I will prefer that over saying it in a complicated, difficult manner. Simplicity is accessibility. Complexity for its own sake is simply elitism. I am proud of the simplicity of my compositions.
