    "Gypsy Dance"

    Y'all,

    This is my "Gypsy Dance".

    All instruments are from the Garritan GPO sample library.

    Regards,

    Dear Larry,


    Your humour has many faces. This quip made me laugh. I expected a totally different dance (Gipsy...) and it started for God's sake with a harpsichord. But suddenly, a small reference to the gipsy scale (harmonic minor scale) entered the exposé. This is humour at it's best. Have you had a career as musical comedian? You would have been the best!

    Thanks again, Larry

    You are perceptive. The entire composition is meant as a tongue-in-cheek work. Can't you just see this band of Gypsies (we spell it with a "y" here in the USA.) out in the middle of a forest with a crackling camp fire and with a full-size harpsichord and an orchestra complete with tympanies.

    I have written several other similar nutty things including one in which the clarinet player plays all of the wrong notes.

    Thanks for listening.
