    "SpringSong"

    Below is a rather saccharine, syrupy composition of mine called "SpringSong" which features the GPO violin, viola, cello and bass sections.

    If you are diabetic, don't listen to it.

    Re: "SpringSong"

    Fortunately I'm robustly healthy three days out of eleven, and could actually do with a bit of fattening up as I'm quite thin.

    I was therefore deeply disappointed by this piece. I found it neither syrupy nor sugary nor saccharine, and I'm not an ounce fatter after listening to it.

    The piece was, however, refreshing and quite well done, Larry. Some fine string writing needless to say, and I enjoyed the harmonic skill you've exercised so expertly and effectively in this a great deal!

    Thanky, thanky, Dave.

    A first-year composition major could write better than this, in my not so humble opinion.

    I appreciate your support. It's encouraging.

    Yes, but they wouldn't have that distinctive LGA touch, would they!
    Nice piece. Liked the harmonies.

    PS I was getting worried - no new LGA piece for 4 days
    Work at getting your next one out sooner.

    Nice work Larry!

    Although the structure is recognizable of your piano form, A string rendition really creates a distinct, richer arrangement.

    Very Nice indeed!

    I thank you very much for listening and also for your nice comments, Mr. Jeff.

    In Florida, at this time of year, the weather is a bit different from that in Canada, isn't it?

    Re: "SpringSong"

    Hey, I liked this piece. I don't know if my comments count, but the latter part sounded like a sound track to some sort of dramatical type movie, with some classical era sounding bits in the first section. I didn't find it sickening syrupy sweet as you described. The way I look at it is, that there's always a place or use for music somewhere, even if someone else doesn't like or appreciate it, or even recognize it. I guess I've just met up with so many people who tell me that they don't like so called 'classical' music, when I feel that they really don't know what they're talking about, because it's used in so many places. In other words, it's all valuable and has it's place, even if it was syrupy sweet. Just my 2 cents.
