    "Fantasy #04 In C"

    All,

    This is a rather abbreviated excerpt from my "Fantasy #04 In C" for piano and strings. The entire work is around five minutes in length. It is all GPO.

    The chordal progressions are immaturely predictable and I wrote it during a period of my life when I had more notes than I had common sense. Hey...wait a minute! That was yesterday! No, actually I composed it during my music student days eons ago.

    [Panting] Larry, this left me a bit breathless, I must say!

    They'll have to pick the pianist up off the floor when he gets done... lol.

    More seriously, this strikes me as a fairly useful exercise, ala Karl Czerny -- great for building up some speed and dexterity.

    My best,

    Personally, I was never able to play it even though I wrote it.

    Czerny's many etudes are a study unto themselves, aren't they?

    As always, thanks for taking the time to listen, my friend.

    This is a fun and exhilerating piece Larry. If this is a view into the young mind of LGA perhaps you should dig some more of these out. And David, must you invoke the name of Czerny?

    Thanks for the compliments, Bill. I'll dig up some more of my youthful work from time to time.

    With a different finger on each piano key you could probably handle it.

    Really like the Moto Perpetuo aspect - my computer got tired at the end
    What a fun piece! I think David's reference to Czerny is on the mark. Did you know he had a workshop with assistants to write many of his works? Considering how much he wrote, it only makes sense...
    Great job, Larry!

    Oy! I wasn't aware that Czerny farmed out his work. Interesting. Maybe I should do that too.

    Many thanks for listening and commenting, Mr. Ron.
