    "Runaway"

    MuzikVolkes,

    Here is my solo piano work, "Runaway". It features the Garritan Personal Orchestra Steinway piano.

    What is this? Chopped liver? If it is, let me know so I won't waste my time posting anything similar to it in the future.

    Hi Larry,
    I don't think it's in the chopped liver catagory, but it is basically Baroque.
    We can't live up to a comparison with Bach.
    I probably quote my Comp teacher too much, but as he says, "Bach is
    dead."
    I think I have learned as much about writing by transcribing great
    Composers like Beethoven, Mozart, etc., but I can't write in their style
    and call it mine. In my transcriptions, I stick totally to their intentions-as I understand them-as I see how they wrote lines and used various
    musical symbols.

    So what? No problem with me.

    Will comment on the piece as soon as my soundcard is working again.

    Yes, Herr Bach is dead, but Herr Alexander is not. I don't pretend, in the slightest, to be Bach. I wouldn't even qualify to carry his manuscript paper for him or to shine his shoes. I write what I feel and if that sometimes sounds Baroqueish, so be it. It isn't intentional. After all, I'm old enough to have been a contemporary of Bach's. However, I don't consciously write in anyone's style except my own and I certainly would not copy anyone else's style, living or dead and "call it mine".

    So, there.

    Larry sir,

    Well, I loved it!!! Dare I say "a runaway success"? (OK I just did ).

    This one floats along so nicely. With lots of subtle nuances - the odd key change here and there, rhythmic variation keeping the listener on their toes, a touch of pedal note, a few trills thrown in fror good measure - delightful. Sounds great on the GPO Joanna, too.
    Well done Old Boy!

    Thank you, fine Englander! I like it a bit too. It's not like a nice setting of tea and crumpets but it'll do I suppose.

    Chopped liver? More along the lines of a good sirloin,
    to my ear -- fine, lean meat on this... no wasted notes.

    I like it when you get to the point like this, Larry.

    Well, I thank you muchly, Mr. Dave.

    A feller needs to display his testicules sometimes to stress his point, doesn't he?

    Personally, I keep my drawers pulled up.

    People laugh too much if I drop 'em.
