    "Piano Concerto Number Three" - First Movement

    Music Lovers,

    This is the first movement of my "Piano Concerto Number Three" in E minor.

    This is an "abridged" version. I had to omit several instruments because my 'puter CPU couldn't handle the load of the full instrumentation. The complete version sounds much bigger and fuller.

    All instruments are from the GPO sample library. This file is over eight minutes long so it is rather lengthy. It should start playing a few seconds after you click on the link if you wish to "stream" it and not actually download it. As a test, I downloaded it in one minute and twenty-five seconds. When I just clicked on the link, it started playing ("streaming") in nine seconds. Your mileage may vary.

    I hope that you like it.

    My best to all,

    Larry A.

    Larry, you old dog, you've been into the rocket juice on this one!

    The piano writing is hell-bent-for-leather good in this... and like so many of your pieces, it falls "right" under the fingers -- just plain feels good to the hand; and some of the development in the latter part is golden.

    Great job!

    Now pass me the fire extinguisher.

    Best,

    Rocket juice?

    A performance of this piece requires two piano players. The first one will croak from exhaustion half-way through.

    Thanks for listening and commenting.

    Whew! I'm exhausted. Great piece Larry. I really enjoyed the energy and momentum. (Also, I'm partial to e minor.)

    That gets kind of expensive doesn't it?
    Never look at the trombones. It only encourages them. Richard Strauss

    Hey, William. I wish that I had as much energy as the piece does.

    Thanks for the listen and the nice comments.

    Wow, nice to know that there are other great things besides roses in Tyler, TX! (I used to live in the Dallas area and those Tyler roses were just the think at Valentine's )

    As a pianist I can greatly appreciate this type of writing, sounds like it would be fun to play!

    Funny, when I first started composing for instruments besides piano I had the hardest time remembering that some instrumentalists would like to breathe occasionally, since pianists can go on and on like this all day (well, maybe not *all* day )

    This piece is just plain fun, thanks!

    I can just imagine the scene at Chez Alexander:
    Larry (to wife): "Honey, I'm just popping into the back room to knock off a piano concerto movement before tea.."

    Heck, Larry, how do you do it? All quality stuff an'all!!
    Wonderful!
