Helen Jane Long
Up 40, after entering for the 1st time last year. Highest of 4 entries for Helen Jane Long this year.
Beginning with a fragile minor key piano melody and trembling string accompaniment, this piece by Helen Jane Long gradually builds to a glorious climax. It's taken from her 2012 album, Intervention, and along with the Flower Duet by Delibes, it's another piece of music to have been thrust into the public eye after being featured on a British Airways advert. Making use of modern minimalist textures, and twinkling piano music, Helen Jane Long proves once again that music does not have to be complicated to be exciting.
