Piano Solo – “Remembering Thomas” by Timothy Brown

When I was younger, my piano teacher knew that I was drawn to achingly sweet, expressive, melodic songs.  She found me this piece which became one of my all time favorite songs.  Sadly, when I recorded this song over 5 years ago, we only had time to do one take and I performed it rather poorly.  However, while I certainly didn’t do this exquisite piece justice, I think you’ll understand (in spite of the wrong notes, hesitation, and mistakes) why I love it so much.  There’s such longing in this melody, an sweet yet aching yearning for what was.  But there’s joy there too; joy in remembering, but even more, a passionate refusal to forget.
