about

“Many people die with their music still in them.” Oliver Wendell Holmes

Thankfully, before his passing February 28, 2015, Floyd Wallace left us the gift of his musical legacy: Compositions crafted though his lifetime and held closely with only a few friends and family. In his final days Floyd personally selected the compositions to be included in this compilation. Through his creativity and generosity, the treasure of Floyd’s music is now available to the whole world. Enjoy!

Legacy – Original Piano Compositions by Floyd Wallace (1934-2015)

“It has been an absolute joy to discover Floyd Wallace's compositions. There is an elegance to his writing style that is reminiscent of Rachmaninoff and Chopin -- Wallace's characteristic left-hand flows like a river underneath a graceful melody.

His pieces are at times a clever compositional jigsaw puzzle, comprised of fugues and intricately crafted harmonic structures, and at other times are beautiful understated and blissfully introspective.

Any classically trained pianist would take joy in learning Wallace's pieces, as his music is a wonderful synthesis of Romantic era emotionalism and harmony with a modern twist. Sophisticatedly and artistically crafted, Floyd Wallace's music leaves listeners with a sweet combination of nostalgia and wonder.”

GRIEVE NOT FOR ME

Grieve not for me when I leave you
And wish that I would stay
And feel for self no sadness
Or regret that I go away

But lift me high with all your love
And with the prayers you say
For I will go and perhaps return
To grace another day

Floyd Wallace April 1971
