Love Never Ending


Author Comments

This is being pitched for National TV.

But ...

It goes much deeper than that. I was heavily inspired by a young woman I've met who happens to have a little girl of her own.

They're both great.

So, this is actually a personal piece by me -- something I rarely do these days -- and exhibits aspects of my current situation with this young woman. Attraction, awe, and a sense of adventure as I'm treading on new territory are all featured in this piece. It's interesting how it's always a woman who drives me to create big pieces like this.

Featured instrument? The cello of course -- one of the most romantic instruments in my opinion.

This is a longer commentary than usual, so let me say that I hope you enjoy the music. Please let me know what sort of images come to your mind. Are there any special people in your life that my music hopefully reminds you of? I'm not the greatest composer, but my main focus is to write with emotion. I hope that I am at least successful at that.

Music for Champions.

I love the warm strings at the beginning. Has a great cinematic vibe, and the build-up into :35 was really nice. You're really tugging at my heartstrings by the time the soft piano starts at :38. Seems like a lot of the piece is quite transitory rather than producing cathartic content, but that's probably my only complaint. Of course, the cathartic content starts coming at the cello solo, and there's a great sense of energy coursing through the texture after that. The texture is so rich and lovely towards the end. Strong sense of emotion and storytelling with this one. Keep up the great work, Jon!

Thank you so much! :):):)

Such a positive and in depth review, thank you!

A bit of clipping here and there, but you nonetheless have me wondering why the hell you haven't done the music to a big film yet or something... I love it. You poured your heart and soul into this. I feel it (and I know you do too), and I hope you go big someday.

Bosa responds:

Thank you very much!

And this. Is music.

Bosa responds:

Thank you, Jaba!

So I will start out with why I only am giving it a 4.5 rating. One, I can't give it a 4.85, so I blame it partially on the rating system. 2. The point at 1:30 was such an explosion of power that it seemed little out of place. The Cello seemed like it knew where it was going and was going to lead the pack in this grand climax and instead of everything crescendo into this point but, when it came the violins and rest of the strings, it fell short, almost as if they dropped out, while the rest of the orchestra immediately started at a Fortissimo.

Now on the plus side, the piece thoroughly accomplished what you set out to do. I had a sense of grandeur and adventure whilst listening, and after reading your comments on the piece the pieces started to fit together. Now, I criticized it up top but I will say that the explosion at the 1:30 mark makes sense for what you are trying to accomplish, after having read your description. The music truly made this an adventure worth experiencing. Bravo.

Bosa responds:

Thank you very much for the in-depth review!

I usually never review songs in here because I feel like my opinion isn't relevant enough to rate things that I barely know a couple things about and I can't really give any great advice, so I limit myself to enjoy listening.

I've been following you for some time now. I'm a big fan of your work and how amazing your progress has been in all these years. And this just lead to one of the best experiences I had in a really long time, which was listening to this and reading about what your inspiration was.

Yeah, it probably sounds like the usual "I can relate to this" cliche. However, I still feel like I need to say that I was feeling more about this song than I expected and reading the description made me understand why. There's someone special in my life too, someone who means a world for me, and this song, or piece, is an incredibly accurate representation of that feeling.

I might not be able to give you any advice as a musician, but I can definitely say if you really tried to write your emotions into it, you did a beyond amazing work. Thank you for this.

Bosa responds:

Wow, thank you so much! I have to admit my thoughts go back to the special person in my life too, especially after reading your review here. So good to know that my song is doing its job!

As long as there are people like you who can appreciate the reasoning behind my music, and for the sake of love, I will continue to write with emotion. Thank you again for the encouraging post!
