Recommended Listening: Solomon Keal - Peace of Heaven

I liked this one right away. Solomon opens the piece with a simple melody in the right hand and a crossover pattern in the left. This goes on for some time and then contrast is introduced as a descending arpeggio in the right hand.

Now, what makes this piece so interesting to me is that a very simple melody and a judicious use of material makes for a compelling musical experience. Nothing complicated here - just some very nice music played beautifully.

This is a good example of how a composer uses the principles of repetition and contrast. Watch and learn. Learn more about Solomon - visit his site at http://www.solomonkeal.com
