‘April Showers’ by Liz Mathiesen
Mark the beginning of spring this March with an up-and-coming composer’s performance of nostalgic, tranquil instrumentation accompanied by the sounds of stormy weather. On the seven-track album, BGSU Musical Arts Major, Liz Mathiesen plays a soft piano through what appears to be even softer rain. Flowing from the introductory track “A Storm Approaches (Intro)”, to “The Clouds”. They Weep,” and in the finale “Epilogue: A Place Above the Cloud,” Mathiesen writes as much wordless poetry in each song as he does in its meaningful title. Whether it’s studying through a difficult exam, or simply a thoughtful walk around the burgeoning campus, “April Showers” offers peace in this turbulent time.
