Topic: Very short adagio

  1. #1

    Talking Very short adagio

    I was going through my files . . . thinking about organizing them one of these days . . . when I spotted an mp3 I had created about 8 months ago. This was orginally the beginning of a piece I posted months ago called "End of the Road", (which is on my website) though I ended up scrapping all of this and none of it made it to the final piece . . . miraculously it survived because I had converted it into an mp3 first

    The file is called 'preview.mp3' because it was originally a preview for the piece I was sending to family. Too bad it turned out being scrapped in the final version

    So here it is, a very short adagio for orchestra . . .


    (And now I can't go back to edit any of it . . . because it's gone! I'll have to re-enter all the data! Though it could do with some reharmonizing and reorchestrating)

    Quite lovely. Nice to listen to your preview version. I like the lyricism very much.

    I agree, Sean... very nice lyricism. This could easily be expanded upon if you ever had the inclination.

    I hope you return to this sometime, Sean. It has your characteristic lyricism; but this thematic material also seems to quietly presage a potential heroic quality in latter development.

    I'd be very interested to see where you take this!
