Hi all, I haven't posted in awhile, partly because I use so many different instrument libraries nowadays, in addition to my trusty GPO. But I did recently finish a piece that's mostly GPO-based, plus a little help from a live harp for some key moments. Anyway, it's called "A Columbus Triptych," and it was commissioned by a marvelous professional trio in Columbus, Ohio. I used this to mock up the piece when I sent them the score so they could hear it.
It's ten minutes long, in three sections. In case you don't want to hear it all, here are some little highlights:
At 2:22 the slow, middle section begins, which is my favorite part of the piece. This thematic material gets used in other movements.
At 5:55, the fast, third section begins; it's a fugue, a form I persist in writing for simply because it seems no one's interested in them anymore (why?!). Anyway, at the end, the humble slow-section theme soars away.
Hope you enjoy it! I've provided both the audio and also the full score in case you're interested in reading along. It's being premiered this month in the midwest! Yahoo!And my best wishes to Gary for his wonderful work, and to all you great composers here!
