The Music

Radnich’s compositional skills span a broad swath of musical genres and styles, and his international award-winning compositions and arrangements have been created for a wide variety of musical venues and applications.

Whether composing a full-scale feature film and accompanying video game, a new concerto for full symphony orchestra, a Heavy Metal mega-band, a jazz big band number, an African choir, a live theatrical Broadway musical with empowering lyrics, a nationally broadcast Miss America show in Las Vegas, or, of course, a piano solo piece—Radnich feels equally at home. His fresh compositions and orchestrations draw much acclaim and have been performed by him at venues such as Lincoln Center, the Music Center at Strathmore, and more. They have made him an international best-selling author with Musicnotes.com and Hal Leonard Corporation and have served as the launching pad for his Virtuosic Piano Solo Series. These compositions are performed around the globe, are used in conservatory exams, have been recorded exclusively by Radnich for PianoDisc and Disklavier player systems, and are on his latest CDs or as downloadable MP3 audio files.

The instrumental arrangement is out of this world. The keyboard is on another level. Mastering of the song is on point... "This was a deep song. It was very serious. It would make a great movie title song. This is a hit through and through."
