Here is a piece I composed some years ago with OV4, slightly revised this month in OV5 and finally realized by real musicians... myself on 12-string guitar and Michael Fan, violin.
This is the middle (more lively) movement of a 3 movement duet. I hope my fellow composers (and guitarists...) will enjoy it.

Hi Pete

Just listened to your piece - WOW I love it. Ive spent my musical life in Brass/Wind bands as well as rock, so completely new genre to me and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Much appreciated, folks! I grew up (do musicians ever grow up?) as a rock guitarist and still perform in a progressive rock band, doing a lot of my own stuff. But my heart is in symphonic music. I have been fortunate to have had several full orchestra works performed, including 2 concerti for electric guitar.
Lately I've been recording my smaller (meaning I can hire and pay folks) works like this violin and guitar piece. Nice to hear the OV5 score realized by humans, although my sample library never makes a mistake :)

hey pete, I might have heard this piece before-great job. Duo playing is always special.
just wondering if the violin had any improv sections? maybe around 2:23? just wondering,..
congrats!

Jim,
That section at about 2 minutes is a semi-cadenza, where I instructed the violinist to feel free with tempo decisions but the notes are all written, so improv as far as rubato only.
Pete

Thanx! Nice composition! Congrats!
