Saudades IV-VII (for piano and strings)
Merci à Mira Diab pour son imagerie parfaite:
"a deep emotional state of nostalgic or deeply melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing will never return. A stronger form of saudade may be felt towards people and things whose whereabouts are unknown, such as a lost lover, or a family member who has gone missing. Saudade was once described as "the love that remains" after someone is gone."
My 2015 album The Last Days of Summer contains Saudades I-III.
