    Twilight Fantasia

    Here's my tonal melodic "Twilight Fantasia" for orchestra. I've never used that glass harmonica or the bass flute before... they sound great with the harp!

    http://www.wizardwalk.com/music2/TwilightFantasia.mp3

    Instruments include: flute, bass flute, glass harmonica, hand bells, harp, piccolo trumpet, violin and cello sections, a couple percussion instruments.

    I hope you enjoy it.

    Wow! Sean, this is gorgeous!

    A truly unique ensemble, I must say; but
    handled beautifully -- a moving and engaging
    piece, my friend, that I listened to with much
    pleasure.

    Technically, perhaps a little more work on dynamics
    on this, where it swells rather suddenly midway
    (~2:40).

    Well done, Sean!

    A very pleasant piece - I enjoyed it very much. It's always too easy to second guest a finished piece of music, so I'll simply not do it. Clearly you have a fine ear for mixing unique sounds.

    Thanks for listening and commenting David! I should probably add more dynamics to all the strings in the piece, of course, but perhaps the strings should sound a bit softer in the particular place you mention. I am glad you like it!

    Nuancing the dynamics and tempi and phrasing -- it all takes
    time and thought, Sean... often more than the writing.

    But this piece is worth spending the time, my friend.

    Sean,

    I second the idea of putting more dynamics to the strings.

    Interesting orchestral colors!

    The melodies could be somewhat more daring in regards to rhythm for me.

    Sean,
    I listened to this yesterday and again just now. Your music is always so charming. Your handling of the harp is particularly good. I love this choice of ensemble. Very unusual but effective.

    A real pretty piece Sean. You must be a gentle soul.

    I have a cousin, Fred Gramman, on my mothers side whom I have never met that directs and writes for bells. He's also been the organist, pianist, and choir director for the American Church in Paris for the last twenty five years.
