Gentle is the name of the game here in Lachini's "Breeze Before Winter," which again manages to be contemporary -- almost evoking modern jazz -- and classic simultaneously. This piece feels like a true eulogy for the season -- the kind of eulogy that evokes happy memories of past times, not the kind that's a funeral simply trumpeting an end. It's a Golden Autumn indeed in the world of Lachini, where those who are lucky enough to be paying attention are in for some of the best modern classical pieces around.

A twinkling piece of musical prose is this song. It shines and further supports the notion that Lachini is one of the best. It too, like so many other of his beautiful creations could fit the scene of a picturesque romantic situation. Lachini solidifies the statement that he is a classic in a modern era. This song has such a rich simplicity and a soothing nature surrounding it that the most hectic and stressed of individuals would have to pause and reflect amongst it's captivating musical splendor. It has a simple melody and is played with a virtuous playing, that music of today is lacking of. Lachini does it again with this piece.
