No it’s not ground hog day! But I am crawling out of my burro with something new. Recently, I have been working on numerous songs, orchestrations, etc. Though they just tend to fall by the side and I never get around to finishing them. All of this to say that I have been a busy little beaver – I just have nothing to show for it.
But alas,this is a little piece I wrote a while back that I had filed away for the day I might do something with it. I came across it again this weekend and decided to take a stab at setting it to orchestra. I have no idea as to what style this is – it has a ‘European Folk Song’ quality about it. The original piano line is still in tack while new melodies and counter melodies fill out the piece.
I was dreading trying to orchestrate the first half because I had no idea as to how to fill it out. After digging in it fell right into place. The second half I thought would be so easy – I was so wrong! That part took a whole lot of work.
It is super short at only 1:43. No development here! Just in and out.
Now to settle in for a long winters nap! (Three more months til spring!)
