Piano Solo - Early Intermediate - Digital Download
Composed by Juan María Solare. 21st Century, Contemporary Classical, Post-Romantic, Neo-Classical, Repertoire. Score. 6 pages. Published by Juan Maria Solare (S0.226589).

Item Number: S0.226589

Mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam was composed in Bremen (Germany) on 30th January 2017, shortly after knowing aboutthe death of Uwe Kolkmeyer, musicianand caricaturist to whom it is dedicated inmemoriam.

The title refers to a thought by Carl Sagan: planet earth is a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.An old idea that, of course, was not expressed by him for the first and onlytime. In Sufism exists an allegory (attributedto Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi) according towhich the essences of the possible beings do exist in the darkness before beingmanifested by the divine light, as the motes of dust suspended in the air in adarken room don't become visible until they are lit by a light ray.

A certain optimistic atmosphere in this work may surprise, theopposite of what is usually associated with death. In my works the tonality of Amajor often expresses consolation.

    A very beautiful piece of music from my favorite composer Juan Maria Solare. Deep and heartfelt but at the same time light as a feather.

    A very touching piece of music from one of my favorite composers Juan Maria Solare. Deep and heartfelt but at the same time light as a feather.
