Long time no see. I'm very sorry, but in this long period I had a lot to do for school and piano. Now that I'm in holiday I hope I can post some of my new works. Today, I want to set to your attention a small violin piece I composed today. This piece is about a metropolitan legend I read some days ago: it's about a little girl about 5 or 6 that played the violin divinely. But was a strange little girl: she never spoke with anyone, she was white in his face and she had big, dreadful white eyes (she was blind). One day, her house set on fire. Her parents ran away from the house, but the little violinist stayed in there, playing on her violin a strange melody. The day after, her pale body was recovered. The strange was that she had no burns. She was intact, but without life and with a diabolic smile on her face. They celebrated her funeral the day after and she was buryed in the town graveyard. But, in the night of the next day, her parents saw her ghost playing the melody she played in the evening of the fire. In the morning, they found the two parents of the girl dead in their living room. The causes of the death where inexplicable and the police filed the case as unexplainable. And from that day, every night, at 1.11 A.M., you can hear, in distance, the melody played by the little violinist that wanders for the streets of the city, playing her enigmatic melody. This piece, titled 'The Ghost of the little violinist', is from a new album I'm writing: 'Legends of ghosts and other mysteries', inspired to a dossier I found weeks ago on the network. In this piece (that is the number 9 of the album), I tried to recreate the melody that the little girl plays...a melody full of tension and un-melodic. In this work I used an older version of the Stradivari solo violin (I don't have the newest ) and a Cathedral preset of the Garritan Ambience. All written and rendered with Finale 2007. I hope you'll enjoy this piece.
