    "Elegy For My Youth"

    Since I just had my 80th birthday, this work is appropriate.

    Here is my "Elegy For My Youth". Instruments are from sample libraries by Garritan (GPO) and East-West.

    Regards to all.

    It is very nice Larry. The music would have deserved a different solo instrument, more youthful, in my opinion.But, the composer is the authority, not us. I can not help hearing JSB in most things you do, and enjoy it always.

    Yes there's a bit of Bach in it, isn't it?

    Some dark melancolic colours in the low strings and french horns, seem to tell more about the time gone and missing past.

    Touching.

    Larry,

    Is that really you? Acting dramatically about the gone by youth? That's not the Larry we know, unless he's fooling us once more. This elegy comes ways too early. Your musical youth is alive and kicking. Come back with that (wonderful) piece in 15 years!

    I hope that I am still around in fifteen years, Mister Max.

    Thank you for your comments.

    Larry, please stop wining over your age. Eighty years, yes, it sounds old, matured, at the brink of whatever comes with age, but this isn't you. You will survive, you are part of some computergame with nine lives...... by the way, the music is great........ Next level!!

    Raymond - today my 70-th birthday.......

    A very happy birthday to you, Mister Raymond!

    I have never whined about my advanced age. I couldn't change my circumstances by doing that.

    Thanks for your message.

    Hi Larry,

    Long time no hear.

    A somewhat somber piece reflecting on life and one's mortality. Quite nice!

    So you're eighty now. Congratulations!

    I think I can hear a herd of elephants coming this way so many more to you.
