Well, while waiting for a new update to Overture to make it fun again :evil: I got inspired (possessed is more accurate) and wrote this piece for string orchestra (gave the wind and percussion players a break).... Composed yesterday and dynamics tweaking in ProTools this morning. Hope you enjoy it...

My "program notes" -- Quite a fascinating "journey" into mod-Baroque landscape! Motifs and counterpoint reminiscent of Bach, but often phasing over into 20th-century idiom. This is a tonal piece, ending in the same tonality in which it began. Effective use of the different string voices, showing influence in places from Bach's organ works also. All-string pieces usually don't interest me, but this one is much more interesting than, say, Barber's "Adagio."

I'm glad you enjoyed it. It is actually a bit more dissonant than much of my works, not intentionally...it just evolved that way.
Barber's Adagio is quite beautiful! I personally prefer all of Bruckner's..but that's a whole different story.
Thank you for listening.

Hi Pete

Just down loaded and listening to it as I type.

Cracking piece, makes me feel smooth and then itchy and relaxed - however I can hear a British style Brass Band playing this - would love to hear you transcribe this over.


THANKS

Colin

Smooth, itchy, and then relaxed... hey, I'll take it! Thanks for the emotions.
Wow- it will take some killer brass players...
