Sailing to a Sunset (single)
2023 / Suzanne Herman Music
Review by Kathy Parsons
"Sailing to a Sunset" is a beautiful solo piano single composed and performed by Suzanne Herman, a longtime piano teacher who lives on the west coast of Florida. Suzanne describes the inspiration for the music:
"The west coast of Florida has iconic sunsets. Suzanne’s favorite local beach is Anna Maria Island, especially the northern most point. It’s where Tampa Bay meets the Gulf of Mexico. No two sunsets are ever alike; each one is different and unique. Experiencing a sunset is saying good-bye to yet another day. Whether you walk the beach or are sailing to the horizon, people never get tired of watching a sunset."
Gracefully flowing and very expressive, the music makes it easy to imagine the many colors of a sunset reflected off of the surface of the water, turning everything bright shades of orange, red, and yellow before gradually softening to pastel hues as the sun slowly disappears into the ocean. Relaxed and dreamy with a colorful sparkle, it's an exceptional piece of music.
"Sailing to a Sunset" is available from Amazon, Apple Music/iTunes and streaming sites including Spotify. Sheet music is also available and is reviewed here on MainlyPiano.com as well. Very highly recommended!
