A Musical Interlude From Composer Nicholas Fairbank

Today is my last day of spring cleaning, and all the major work is out of the way. In the meantime, I give you the last movement to a piece called “Aurora” by Nicholas Fairbank. It’s set to a video of the Northern Lights (which I would love to see) and the pictures were taken by Fairbank in Svalbard, Norway in October of 2012.

Speaking of what I would love to see: Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. For some reason I’ve been oblivious to this part of the world and only just recently I’ve become aware of its stunning beauty. Why am I the last to know? It’s especially weird given how much I love winter and snow and ice.

Here is a review of the piece you’re about to hear. I wish you could hear the whole thing. It’s an incredible, incandescent piece. It’s music hovering in the heavens. Maybe there will be a recording soon.
