{Heim} Serenade for Strin

Author Comments

I wrote this piece last year, using the string sounds from Garritan Personal Orchestra along with Finale 2008, which sound pretty nice. I had to boost the volume substantially using Audacity, which is why I haven't posted this piece until now.

The melody and rhythms are all very simple and delicate, and Serenade for Strings was inspired by a picture my father took one foggy morning along a small pond.




I feel like I have been saying this on all your pieces on here but this is amazing! The emotion in this song is unbelieveable. Would you mind if I used this in my upcoming wedding? It is just such a beautiful piece.

JeffHeim responds:

of course! a wedding?? you should get live musicians for a wedding, but by all means...use this piece if you must!

Utterly Captivating

This is a beautiful and utterly captivating creation. I was picturing a reunion between lovers or family members returned from war.

On second listen through I thought I heard a slightly bittersweet ring to it and that enabled the image of an old friend watching his lost love marry another.

The music is sweeping and flows like a gentle breeze. I'm not familiar iwth music lingo, but I love the way the instruments compliment one another and particularly enjoyed when the melody swelled and increased in volume only to taper off to this almost regretful sweetness.

Very nicely done. You have some tremendous skill with this and lovely work overall.
