New Music: Lewis Bolland – Distance

Last month I discovered the fantastic British composer Lewis Bolland – already, we have more new music from him!

By Jane Howkins

Distance is another piece of gorgeous classical music, more in line with the neoclassical genre than anything else. It starts out slowly, building up with some beautiful piano arpeggios, creating evocative pictures in your head. It’s a really haunting piece of music, showing off Lewis’ palpable talents. Some strings also appear after a while, adding a lovely backbone to the piano, which still remains the focal point of the track. The music rises up to a lovely crescendo of sounds, making Distance a must listen!
