Aragorn and Arwen's Theme,
Aragorn and Arwen, in The Fellowship of the Ring, stand on a bridge in Rivendell and commit themselves to each other while this beautiful music is sung by Enya.
"Aníron" means "I Desire" in Elvish. You can read the translation from Elvish into English in this video:
It is difficult to capture the stillness of this amazing music on the piano. When you come right down to it, the piano is a PERCUSSION INSTRUMENT, and this song is like a long, long breath.
What can be done? I'm a pianist and I want to play it on the piano! To the rescue: a very light touch and lots of pedal will help.
Here is the arrangement for piano, just part of the page. This music is copyrighted, and the only way I can offer it to you, unlike most of the music on my site, is to send you over to SheetMusicPlus.
This beautiful music is two pages. I'm showing you just the top half of page one.
The notes of this piano arrangement are not difficult; what may be a challenge is the CONTROL that is necessary for a subdued sound in the left hand that still allows the right hand melody to sing!
The grace notes are very easy; they might be your student's first exposure to little extra notes added to the melody.
More challenges for your early intermediate student: the left hand sneaks up into treble clef several times. And the right hand is playing up in the rafters! Good reading practice.
This is probably the SOFTEST and most tender of all the music from The Lord of the Rings, except perhaps in The Hobbit when Kili is healed by the beautiful elf Tauriel (NOT in the book!). More music is coming, rougher and fiercer!
This "simple" song is the kind of piece that makes an audience hold their breath at a recital. Let your student make that happen! Check it out at SheetMusicPlus.com.
