Mark Mrozinski, Daybreak at the Castle

Iowa Hawkeyes

With a calming, broken chord accompaniment and a gentle melody, “Daybreak at the Castle” is a nice piece for students who enjoy playing peaceful, melodic music. One interesting aspect is Mrozinski’s use of dynamics. The piece has a gradual crescendo from pianissimo to fortissimo that lasts the entire piece. This is extremely important for capturing the portrayal of the sun gradually emerging from the horizon. Another component of this work is smooth pedaling, which will help create a smooth, warm sound.
