    A Jestor In A World Full Of Knaves

    For small Wind Ensemble.
    A voice stands out and triumphs over the din of the uninformed.

    Thanks for listening, Gary.
    This was a fast piece. I did it in one day. Sometimes the music points the way...
    I'm thinking about 2 more movements.

    And an able jester, at that, Gary. A brief but quite
    satisfying movement, my friend -- and yes, certainly,
    I'd think this would be well worth taking forward into
    a small suite!

    My best,

    It's well titled

    There is a care free feel to it but with meaning.

    I think you have done a good job of realizing this piece.

    It does sound like there is more to the story.

    Thanks for listening, David.
    In each composition, I always have a "blank page" feeling when I start
    thinking about a new movement. Do I want a fast/slow/fast; complex rhythmn such as 9/8 or 12/8, etc.?
    If it sounds good after it's finished, it seems clear. If I feel incomplete, than I probably made the wrong choice.
    I think that's why the CLASSIC Perriod would have been more comfortable.

    Thanks for listening, Phil.
    When I played my clarinet in the various bands over the years, I
    always felt a sense of meaning or drama within the piece. It usually didn't have anything to do with the name. It was the movement, intensity and
    character of the line within the composition. Every time I played Elsa's Procession I felt that intensity to the point that I still feel it when I hear the music.
    As I write, I feel the same things, but I can't describe a story. It's more like the combinations of all of the above as they interact in the music.
