Since the last tie I posted this, I was blown away with the cold silence of being ignored, I reworked the piece a bit, and created a printable score. Maybe this time it will be more to your liking...
I have not been composing for a long while. Had even less time for orchestrating a few pieces that are waiting for very long. However, while searching themes for a new movie I will score (a kind of weird superhero movie with a twist), I noticed that the 2 themes I was toying around were parts of a valse. What I am trying to say: Lately I somehow do not have total control over what I write... After working on something, I notice things about it that were NOT intented!
OK, let's come to the point. This is the "Valse tragique", composed in 2,5 hours of manic, obsessed writing, then revised and completed in 2 more hours one week later. Of course I will orchestrate it someday, but right now I do not have the time. You will notice 2 main elements: a plaintive theme, and a more hero-like theme. Having a superhero-waltz is something new, eh?
