    Thank you all for responding. Unfortunately, it's not Kostia's "Winter Ride" OR Mendelssohn. The Kostia piece is the closest in terms of style, but there aren't any other similar works on any of his albums that I've looked through.

    I agree with the poster who believes the piece was written as incidental music for the commercial. If this is the case, then the music will never be released publicly because of contract and copyright agreements. Never fear, though, for as we all have discovered there is much more music out there in the world in the same vein for us to enjoy and perform.

    Wabie is right! This music was composed and performed by Russian composer and pianist Kostia specifically for this commercial (you can call Aria resort to confirm that, if you are interested). He is Narada Recording Artist and also works with Genesis and Phil Collins guitar player Daryl Stuermer (BTW, there are tons of videos on youtube you may check out!). You can find his albums on Amazon.com, iTunes, CDBaby etc.. There are some postings on youtube with his music. Here are couple:

    He also composed and performed music for "Home Depot" 2004 Olympic commercial. Check it out!

    A commissioned Kostia piece seems right.

    For those of us that can't play by ear, does anyone mind posting the chord progression? It sounds like tremolo octives (or perhaps chords) that modulate a couple of times thoughout the piece, with much of the effect dependent on dynamics and phrasing.

    Very minimalist and appealing, especially coming from Kostia (who can be a bit overwrought at times)....

    my source tells me the music was created by Earhole music in Chicago. Perhaps they re-recorded a version of the piece of music some of you think it is but you could call them and find out easily. good luck.

    The track was composed and performed by Kostia. Recorded at Earhole music production company in Chicago. Here is their web site:

    i just heard it for the first time and thought is was pretty cool. I spent about 3 minutes at the keyboard and could probably write it out. But the composer was just messing around with an F maj 7 chord. Infact the first melody is the 1st, 3rd,maj7th,5th,2nd,3rd ( or something like that). Again i just messed with it, but it seems to me like the harmonic movement is based on the Fmaj7 going to Gmaj. if you want to hear what I mean, play an a min chord then a g major chord. he is just messing around with the minor triad built on the third of the tonic and the major chord of the second (Gmaj chord). I cant tell if it is 2, 3 or four hands. if it is 2, I dont have the mechanical ability to perform it, but it shouldnt be that hard to arrange for 2 hands. I like it though
