Far, Far Away

"Far, Far Away" is an alt-pop song driven by classical strings and energized by a super catchy chorus, and speaks of the urgency to change one’s life.", stand zu lesen und da will ich natürlich "prüfen" ob das auch so stimmt in Bezug auf "energized by a super catchy chorus". Andererseits wollte ich auch wissen wie eine klassische Komponistin einen Alt-Pop Song umsetzt.
Der Einstieg gelungen, feinstrukturierte Streicher holen den Hörer direkt am "Eingang" ab und begleiten diesen bzw. leiten einen durch den Song. Spätestens ab dem Chorus, welcher wie ein Frühling in Paris klingt, zumindest stell ich mir diesen so vor, lächelt man zufrieden. Mit einer eleganten Leichtigkeit wird vorgetragen.
Der Refrain bestätigt Versprochenes. Die Dringlichkeit sein Leben zu ändern wird als Thema in den Lyrics verarbeitet. Das Arrangement, wie ich, nachdem ich die Bio gelesen hatte, bereits vermutet hatte, perfekt. Die Virtuosität einer klassischen Komponistin, welche im Jazz-Pop zu Hause ist, trifft hier auf Pop und schreibt sich diesen Song auf den Leib.
Es sind die kleinen und feinen Nuancen an Sounds welche dem Gesamtbild Farbe verleihen und es zum Leuchten bringen, die Impression und die Vollendung verdankt der Song aber dennoch dem Gesang von Florie selbst. "Far, Far Away" by Florie Namir ein eleganter Alt-Pop Song der besonderen Art.
