Una Vida Preciosa

Una Vida Preciosa

Una Vida Preciosa

Kieran McCrossan

 “Una Vida Preciosa” translates from Spanish as “A Precious Life” and I composed this piece around the idea of just appreciating everything you have in life from the small day to day things to big achievements in life and just living in the moment of happiness at its given time. It's also about living a happy and loving life and appreciating your friends and family. It's a very simple piece, but that's what I wanted because appreciating things isn't very hard to do even if we don't exactly do it all the time. It starts with chromatic single notes symbolising the beginning of life and layers are added on with melody and harmony symbolising the growth and time of life with the ending being the same as the beginning to symbolise death and an E Major arpeggio and single harmonic at the end to complete the cycle of life. I'm sorry for the bad audio as I don't have proper recording equipment. This was composed for solo classical guitar.
