Piano composition "Last Leaf" is written by British composer Lucas King. Young composer writes music to escape and dream, to transport us to worlds that we can’t go to. He wants to show listeners other worlds. He usually starts by deciding what emotion he wants to evoke. Then he selects instrumentation according to what he thinks best represents that emotion. This is what Lucas King wrote about his creative process in his interview with Moving Classics TV, Internet channel for contemporary zeitgeisty music: "My personal favourite pieces of mine hold sentimental value, some of them aren’t special or different from a composition standpoint or even difficult to play, but I wrote and recorded them to convey a particular thought, when I listen to them again I remember exactly what that abstract thought was. A lot of my pieces are improvised, I prefer it when I’m trying to capture a moment or thought, that way it’s still fresh. Instead of sitting and constructing the piece as the idea and original thought fades I can just get it recorded there and then. It’s similar to a diary."
