    Thumbs up Boulnois - Pavane

    Joseph Boulnois was a French composer, he wrote a few wonderful pieces of music, then was tragically killed in WWI at a rather young age. I hate war, but even moreso when I wonder what this talented man might have gone on to write had he lived to a ripe old age.

    Here is his Pavane for piano, rendered using the JaBB Steinway and Finale 2006:

    Hello, giwro_jon

    At the end of your message you aksed us to "Enjoy!"---That was a request fulfilled with ease. I enjoyed immensely.

    It's a wonderful piano piece, evocative and yearning in an intelligent, unstrained way. Reading your brief background on Joseph Boulnois was a sobering reminder of how war is responsible for eradicating so much light in the world.

    Compliments on your excellent, flowing rendition of the piece. Due to my personal taste, I do wish I could have been sitting closer to the pianist (less reverb)--that was my only distracting wish as I listened.

    Thank you so much for this.

    Thanks, Tom!

    This came from a 3 volume collection of pieces issued in the early 1900's... there are a number of other wonderful works in the set also.

    Glad to oblige!

    Really great, Jonathan. I had never heard this piece before and the way you rendered it was beautiful. Thanks for the introduction to this short-lived composer.

    Gunther, glad you liked it!

    Randy, Also pleased you enjoyed this....

    As for the reverb, you gotta remember I'm an organist, so I like things a bit more "wet" reverb-wise. I did tone it down from my usual rolling acoustic to more of a recital-hall

    Cheers,

    Hello again, giwro_jon

    It really sounds fine. I just often have the feeling I'm stuck up in the balcony hearing virtual concerts, when I'm tired of the cheap seats and want one of those high ticket seats on the main floor in the orchestra section, up close to the stage! Just one of my Things.

    Jack, Glad you enjoyed it... He wrote only a few pieces before his death... here are 4 more (if you are interested):

    Just listening to the unusual harmonies in these minitures makes me wonder what he would have written if he had lived another 30-40 years.

    Cheerio,

    Jonathan,

    Joseph Boulnois... another voice silenced too young, and
    rarely heard. I think perhaps I've only heard a couple of
    his pieces, before.

    Thank you for bringing these too us; I listened to the Pavane
    and the four organ miniatures with much interest. Boulnois'
    harmonic work is extraordinary in its richness; and one does
    indeed wonder where he might have journeyed had he been
    given more years to do so.

    My best,
