Nostalgia is an adaption of my previous work Sleep Well, Sleep Tight.


After finishing Sleep Well, Sleep Tight, a pianist friend pursuing his D.M.A. degree had the intention to play it as an encore for his lecture concert, but initially I wrote that one to be more pop music sound and personally didn’t think it could work well in an academic activity.


So, I decided to adapt it into this Nostalgia. I only kept the first phrase of the original composition but recomposed the rest of it to make the taste more classical and moderate. And that’s what you’re listening to now.
