Yet another “new release” post? Not at all. This is really special and if you’re into orchestral, melodic, romantic filmmusic, you should definitely give this a listen. Particularly because Goldfall has been my first (and hopefully not my last) collaboration with the talented viola/violin player Natalia Wierzbicka a.k.a. Nat Willow. As you know I’m specializing… Continue reading Out now: Goldfall
