Baroque Lament with Strings, Flute & Timpani (Composed by David Ian Rose)


David Ian Rose is ridiculously talented. This is his second classical piece at The Cafe. I wish we had something of his to feature everyday.



About Dave R

Dave has been composing music and writing songs since his late teens. He studied theatre at Dartington College of Arts, in the UK, before pursuing an early career in acting, directing and teaching. He has played guitar, bass, drums and keyboards - as well as sung - in a variety of bands and has composed music for TV documentaries in the UK and USA. Since getting involved in recovery, his outlook on life, work and people has changed dramatically - and for the better. He is currently working on what he now considers to be his life’s work: he is writing his first book on the subject of spirituality; and is composing his second orchestral symphony. He is also a dedicated single parent, taking care of his daughter for half of every week, and giving the other half to his work.
