    Tell us something about your track The Claddagh Ring!
    My last piano solo piece is about an Irish tradition, the Claddagh ring represents 3 symbols: the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty. Galway has produced Claddagh rings continuously since at least 1700. According to Irish author Colin Murphy, a Claddagh ring was worn with the intention of conveying the wearer’s relationship status: On the right hand with the point of the heart toward the fingertips: the wearer is single and might be looking for love. On the right hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist: the wearer is in a relationship; someone “has captured their heart”. On the left ring finger with the point of the heart toward the fingertips: the wearer is engaged. On the left ring finger with the point of the heart toward the wrist: the wearer is married. This neoclassical and romantic track is dedicated to my girlfriend of course! Guess how she wears hers!

    Thank you for submitting Nicolas!

    Tell us something about your track Magnolia!
    Looking at the magnolia tree in bloom in my garden, I realized a similitude, a metaphor for life. So beautiful, fragile and ephemeral. We must enjoy every moment. I’ve chosen the intimate sound of the felt piano to convey this emotion.

    Thank you for sending me this track!
