Strength In Passing

by Bradford W. Tilden



Strength in Passing is a very special piece. It was commissioned by a dear friend in memory of his departed wife. Though, I never met her in person, I was told she was one of my biggest fans and loved my piano music.

I was honored when asked to write a memorial piece for her. The project evolved so much more than I had expected. I felt her presence immediately when I began composing the music. I could feel her inspiring and guiding me. When I finished writing, I knew the music was complete, because her spirit send me images of yellow flowers in gratitude. To this day, I feel a warm presence every time I perform this beautiful piece. It is so much more than music. It is healing music.

There is a strong intention of healing, and aiding in transition witihin this piece. It is a musical message that transition can be joyous and exciting even triumphant when embraced strongly like the courageous woman it was dedicated to, and who helped to write it from the other side.
