    Scen 2. (In the Royal bedroom of the castle)

    Orgando enters the room quietly, but realizes very soon that the king is deep asleep.
    His sharp little eyes can see an open book near a half finished glass of wine. The cover of the book says "Doctor Faustus and His Final Descent to Hell". The king snores like a boar and the bed makes a squeaking sound that would drive any normal person mad. The dwarf walks around in the room. He walks around like he always has in many courts around Venice. He has seen a lot, but wants to forget most of it, especially what happened when the Catholic church found out about the books he was reading. A tiny wrinkle on his thin lips reveals a silent smile. Yes, he has come to the right place. He decides to sit here and wait until the king wakes up.

    Fredrik-

    I want to thank you so much for being here on the Forums, and presenting these astonishing concerts for us.

    As with the previous section of this work, there is such a sure hand present in the music, there is such energetic erudition in the execution. I find it pure pleasure to listen.

    Thank you - hear my applause?

    Hi Fredrik,

    You've managed to capture something of the old and new with this - and the effect is stunning! The fugue-like structure that is evident in this writing reminds me of early French organ music (Couperin, de Griny, Marchant et al) and this is amplified by the use of brass resembling the baroque organ. But the strings and orchestration generally help to bring this right up to the present time. This is incredibly powerful and effective.

    There is a lot of reverb with this - but that helps to give a spacious feel to the sound that fits with the subject matter.

    Thanks for sharing. I look forward to hearing more.

    Thumbs up Re: The Stainglass Pyramid

    Fredrick:
    I enjoyed your composition and took delight with the ending. Very well crafted and presented ideas that any orchestra would find rewarding to play and experience its well deserved audience exhuberant response. Thankyou for posting this.

    Re: The Stainglass Pyramid

    You did a wonderful job Fredrik! ... combining the lush and very full romantic orchestral sweeps with the more regal sounds of early classical fugue.
    There is a lot of power and precision within the work to create a pleasurable balance for the ear.

    Is there a scene 3 coming soon!??

    Yes Michael,

    This one has a lot of power in it. Normally, I would not like this much reverb, but for this piece, it is not only tolerable but necessary and fits like a glove.

    The brass was more subdued in this as compared to some of your other pieces and I like the diversity.

    Many of us here us boxnet. The free version has a upload limit of 10 mb but no limit on time. It is a pity that we have to stop midstream and open another window to continue.

    Regardless, this is another well done piece.
