A Rhapsody Lives in You (single)
2022 / Lisa Swerdlow
Review by Kathy Parsons
"A Rhapsody Lives in You" is a stunning new single by pianist/composer Lisa Swerdlow. Lovingly composed and dedicated to her wife, Lucie, Lisa describes the music in her own words:
"We all have a song that is uniquely ours that resonates out into the universe, and this unique song dwells in our hearts and energy field and comes through in our laughter and our tears. It gives us our connection to the cosmic universe. I was inspired to compose this piece when my wife of nearly 27 years became ill with a very rare and aggressive cancer. Whenever I'd hear her laugh I could hear her life force in music. It's the harmony of the cosmos that connects us all. We are a song!"
Orchestrated and mastered by Doug Hammer, love flows from every note of this incredible piece of music. Although it is understandably very sad, the piece also offers hope and the promise of eternal love. The orchestration never overpowers the piano, deepening the emotional expression subtly and with grace.
For an even more powerful experience, be sure to check out the wonderful video for "A Rhapsody Lives in You" that can be viewed on Lisa's website as well as on YouTube. The single is available on Amazon and Apple Music/iTunes as well as many streaming sites, including Spotify. Don't miss this one!
