    Study No. 4 for Wind Quintet

    There is a luminousness, a convergence of enchantments,
    And the world is altered for the better as trees,
    Rivers, mountains, animals, all find their true place,

    But only when Orpheus sings. When the song is over
    The world resumes its old flaws, and things are again
    Mismatched and misplaced and the cruelty of men

    Is tempered only by laws. Orpheus can change the world
    For a while, but he cannot save it, which is his despair. […]
    Mark Strand, Dark Harbor, XXVIII

    Dear Fabio,


    Please go on singing. The world will be a better please when that one universal language, called music, telling about harmony, peace and respect, about patience and caring, about love and tenderness, about feelings and emotions, about concern and compassion, sympathy and helpfulness... What a wonderful poem accompanying your new fantastic study. Your muse has definitely broken her silence and helps you transmit her voice into this world full of beauty and horror bringing people to reason and joy again.


    Well done!

    Bravissimo,

    Max

    Hello Fabio,

    Liked it very much. Some parts of it I re-played a few times, it was so nice and free. I loved the end, very witty..
    and, I liked the poem also. Thanks

    I'm really enjoying this new burst of musical creativity from you, Fabio. Both #3 and #4 have such a palpable intelligence behind their effortlessly flowing energy, making them imminently musical and entertaining.

    I also replied to your post with this music at Gary's new Forum - I like the way you set this link up here at NS better, since it goes directly to the #4 file, instead of the slightly confusing multiple files posted with your other link.

    Keep flying on those musical winds, Fabio!

    Hi Randy.
    I just replied you over there about file presentation.
    Here I thank you for your words.
    The winds are whirling with ardor around No.5…

    Thank you, Max.
    I see your elegant rhetoric vein is in good shape too.

    Thank you for listening, Ted.
    I'm glad you enjoyed it.
    It is interesting to say that I wrote the final chord before writing the four bars that precede it: I must be there in some way.
    Also, my first choice was for the first line of another Strand's poem, Orpheus Alone, from The Continuous Life.
    His output is so copious that you can expect I will write Etudes for years .
