I stumbled over this piece of magic on complete accident, searching for another anime soundtrack. It blew me once it hit the 30-second mark. Just oh my gosh! I absolutely love the strings and horns and wind instruments! It’s so upbeat and chirpy, yet regal with its use of classical instruments! It makes me so happy and almost nostalgic somehow to listen to it. It reminds me of some Studio Ghibli soundtracks somehow. Love love love it!
There’s a reason Adrian is one of my most favorite music composers and that I love almost every single song he’s composed: it’s because of the pure EMOTION and HEART that he puts into each piece. This song he wrote for his then long-distance girlfriend, now sweet wife, Carina. AND YOU CAN HEAR HIS LOVE AND LONGING FOR HER IN THIS PIECE. YOU JUST CAN. It’s so bittersweet. The yearning is incredible. I resonate with the emotion strongly being in a long-distance relationship myself. I can hear the pain and love because I know it myself, and it’s amazing to find something like that in a single instrument deliver song. ❤ Just wow.
