Luke Duffy ''Before Again Before'' - a piano piece that paints

''Before Again Before'' is an alluring piano piece from an Irish composer Luke Duffy, currently residing in Iceland - who's landscape served as an inspiration for the elegant piece of music you're about to hear.

Written on a three-count, this neoclassical waltz serenades the famous beauty of Icelandic landscapes with grace and heaps of emotion. Although the composer sticks to one rhythmical pattern throughout the entire song, at no point does the music feel repetitive or boring. Making great use of dynamics and harmonic changes, brushing up on everything from classical to jazz, the pianist maintains the listener in his domain, sometimes even throwing in an almost unexpected, but a soothing rubato.

Icelandic landscapes would be thrilled to know this is how they sound on a piano, no doubt about it:
