Automation is humankind’s best friend in terms of raising standards of living and freeing up human efforts to be devoted to truly creative and innovative tasks.

Waltz composed by Mr. Stolyarov in December 2007 and played in the Finale 2011 software using the Steinway Grand Piano instrument.
This waltz experiments with harmonies not found in Mr. Stolyarov’s previous works, while remaining true to Mr. Stolyarov’s conviction that music must be pleasant to the ear and convey a joyous, confident sense of life.
