Review by Kathy Parsons
Fariborz Lachini is in the midst of an incredibly rich composing period, pairing classical music styles with his own melodic gifts and deeply emotional musical storytelling. Blossom follows the stunning Requiem For a Love in this classical series with a piano solo that is lighter in mood and spirit than the Requiem, quietly celebrating the wonders of spring and the miracle that is a new flower. As in all of the marvels of nature as well as life itself, there seems to be a tinge of sadness, and that emotion is communicated in this piece as well. Blossom begins with a quiet melody line and simple left hand accompaniment that rely on the passion of the playing to bring forth the colors and expression that tell the story. As the piece develops, it becomes embellished with trills and more dynamics. The trills suggest the fluttering of a butterfly’s wings or perhaps a hummingbird’s flight around the blossom. Or perhaps it suggests a gentle breeze that causes the petals of the blossom to flutter. Regardless, the musical scenario is one of perfection and wonder, and the piece is a delight for the ears. Soon to be included on a CD of these original classical pieces, Blossom is currently available for download as a single on lachini.com and pianoromantic.com. Highly recommended!
