    Dorian

    Hi,

    This is a piece for viola and piano. (Sorry for the name duplication, Randy, but it refers to mode rather than Gray, and besides, it probably came first.)

    Anyhow, it's here:

    Nice! I enjoyed your composition.

    I according to your web site, it was written in 1959. You mention that it's a study for a beginning viola player. This is a very cool study. It's a very nice composition. I hope it stood the test of time for you!

    Curious. Is this a live recording or is it a GPO (or some other software) rendering?? These very modest ears could not tell.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Jack! You sure got MY attention, with that title!

    --side note---I use the Dorian mode as a kind of musical in-joke in my show. At one point Dorian is off-stage and starts to play the piano. Before playing his song, he runs through the Dorian scale as a warm up.

    And now, to YOUr music---I found this is a very satisfying piece. The mode really is a pleasant one, and the little tapestry you've woven with it is wonderful.

    I see at the site you suggest it would be a good piece for a beginnng Viola player. Have you had students and/or teachers purchase it through that site? I'm always curious how people are doing with the various sites for posting and/or selling music.

    Thanks for the very nice listen!

    It's all GPO - the Steinway piano, and the solo viola.

    Best regards,

    Jack

    Hi Randy,

    I thought that title would catch your attention, and I'm pleased you dropped by.

    I wrote this piece for a College student, who was just starting the viola, though she probably had some other musical background (I'm not sure). I've never made any money from it, although I think it has been occasionally played here and there. The Canadian Music Centre is a repository of scores (both in manuscript and published) that they loan out to interested parties. I've published a few things for which I've picked up a few dollars over the years. Unfortunately, I haven't written anything new for a long time.

    All the best.

    Hi Jack,

    I've tried a number of times to get this to play; without
    success... sorry! It says "Ready". I hit the Play button
    repeatedly. It briefly shows "Connecting to media..." --
    but, then, nothing.

    Is the file still there, Jack; or would there perhaps be a
    directly mp3 link I might try?

    All my best,

    Hi David and Charlie,

    There seems to be a problem on that site.

    If you click here, I think you'll find it:
