I tried to create simple melodies, which could be easily sung, but on the other hand are not usual. Of course the influences are evident... Did you noticed the notes of the oboe not in the solo part, but in the harmonies (no, its not him, who has influenced this piece)?
Thank you for listening and for your time, you take to write this kind words.
What a lovely work. Simple but very whimsical, twisting and turning harmonically, always keeping me guess where it will go next. And then the same with the orchestration displaying a fine selection of GPO instruments.
I tweaked the MIDI-data a little bit. The strings have now some articulations. And the music is now a little louder, because I recognized, that box.net puts the volume level down. For comparison I'll post two links for some time.
