Discovery: Aaron Vaurio Jackson

Yep that’s right, we’ve got another amazing piece of neoclassical music for you, this time coming from American composer Aaron Vaurio Jackson.

By Jane Howkins

the fire between us is my first introduction to Aaron’s work, but it surely won’t be my last listen! It starts out with a gorgeous piano melody, running through the music in a delicate yet playful way. The strings are also pretty interesting, used in different ways throughout the tune. At times, they perform little staccato arpeggios, whereas at other points they’re much more expansive, building up the tension as the music progresses. It’s great to hear something a little different from the current classical norms!
