Again I didn't find an appropriate name for this track. I made it in half of a day, driven by a certain feeling. Somehow this theme found me, reminding me of imigrants around the turn of the 19th to 20th century.

Lovely and sad
Nice arrangement! It does have that "journey of the dipossesed" feel to
it. No home, no rest, its cold, no end in sight. Very emotional. It also
has a vaguely Slavic undertone, which I'm at a loss to explain. I love the
relentless plucked cello that underlies most of the piece.

Nice choice of instrument to carry the alto theme. It has an old-time
radio sound to it, which further evokes images of that period of mass
imigration across the Atlantic. This would be outstanding in a

A very sad theme...
...I was watching the movie 'Titanic' the other day, or at least a part of
it, with some teenagers, and I found myself terribly moved by all of the
poor (as in--not much money) immigrants trapped in the bottom of
the ship... It really hit me that those would have been MY ancestors...
the ones coming over bravely in steerage...Not the rich ones in first

There is a steadiness to this music, and a determination, with a
relentless plodding feel in the bass notes... I would bet that in a longer
composition these elements could be transformed into a similarly
structured and more joyful variation on the theme...

I also agree with what chikoppi has written.

Nice composing and arranging skills, and the recording is flawless.

Wonderfully sad...
Definitely lends itself to the visual of old black white documentary
footage. The sad tone of a forgotten struggle. Very nice...

My Dad would have loved this!
He and my grandparents came through Ellis Island in 1912, so I learned
about their struggle through him. Your extraordinary piece accurately
depicts life for them back then; abject poverty but with renewed hope
upon landing on the shores of the U.S.A.

Exceptional composition! And, like chikoppi, I love the cello underlying it

Best regards,
