Discovery: Jacco Wynia

Jacco Wynia is a Dutch classical composer whose lively new track La Danse tells the playful story of a passerby dancing to his music in the street.

By Graeme Smith

It’s a highly visual composition and I found I could see every movement of the dancer as Jacco played. It’s a light and playful dance with intricate footwork and sweeping arms all set to a gentle waltz. It builds to a satisfying climax before returning to where it started.

Jacco has been delighting people of all walks of life with his music and pens his compositions as a form of personal communication. In La Danse, I think the music tells a story all of its own. You can listen to it below.
