SVEN SEBASTIAN HORNER – “FAMILY SHOULD HELP YOU HEAL (COMPOSITION NO. 6)

Composed for piano, electric guitar, clarinet and voice, Sven Sebastian Horner’s meditation on the importance of chosen families when our biological ones can be at the root of extended pain is a patient and mournful unfolding that echoes a deeply held sense of pain. Within this elegy for failed families is a seed of hope within families of choice – best illustrated in the half uplift in each heavy piano chord and clarinet melody that weaves itself throughout – providing a faint but powerful way out. Gorgeous work by this German composer.
