Untold Love

"Untold Love" is a strikingly beautiful new release from the exceptionally talented composer/producer known as Sounds M. Echoes of the late period Romantic era ripple through this work that features arpeggiated harp and piano, with sparse legato woodwinds and strings lending their support. Unconventional harmonic progressions and broken half diminished chords captivate the listener, conveying a sense of wonder and intrigue without the use of a traditional melodic line. Magical and mysterious, "Untold Love" from Sounds M is a must listen for any and all contemporary classical fans, particularly those with an affinity for music from the Romantic period.

Strongest Points 

Gorgeous production, solid mix. Nice full sound. Haunting yet fascinating atmosphere and mood. Lovely instrumentation, outstanding job of weaving the piano and harp together. Strings and winds fill in where the broken harp/piano chords leave off. Those two voices (I believe clarinet and violin?) carry on a captivating conversation that feels like the true heart of the piece. Brilliant use of chromaticism and extended harmonies. Wonderful use of space in the arrangement, it really breathes well. All in all, this is an absolutely spellbinding composition and a simply marvelous track that was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to review.
