Here is my "Shamrockin'", featuring a soprano recorder, tenor recorder and the GPO Gagliano solo violin.
Okay... I played the recorder in elementary school... and that does NOT sound like a recorder. >.<
Anyway, a very interesting piece. LOVE the way the parts work together.
Wonderful! Thanks for posting!

Are you going for a "bagpipes type" sound in the beginning? Hope so, I liked that "drone" note you held. The rest of the work is very playful and covers a wide spectrum of rhythms and harmony.
Very much enjoyed!

Very nice work on the writing in this, Larry.
Ahhh, such a nice sound with those recorders, made even more so with some wonderful composing to feature them! There was a definite reverence to the overall color of the piece while remaining playful at the same time. One of your more "serious" pieces, Larry, and thoroughly enjoyable by virtue of it being so well-written -- no surprise!
I was quite impressed with the authenticity of the recorder sounds (and the way you used them so idiomatically). What library are they from??
Another very fine work of music, Larry!
A enjoyable recording. The instruments worked well together in structure and sound.
They called the plastic recorder a tonet or when I played one.
