    THE MINSTREL's LONG TONGUE - ANNO 1666

    a fast paced smirk on this corrupt aristocrat and mischievously complex as his intentions.

    Mischief afoot (or atongue) indeed! These aristocrats...
    they probably could have taught us a thing or two about
    lascivious.

    Writing and rendering both first rate on this, Fredrik!

    The one comment I might make is on pace. Tempo
    is always very subjective, but I think some of this
    (the opening particularly) might be taken with just
    slightly more leisure, befitting that relaxing glass of
    wine. The better to savor!

    Much enjoyed, my friend -- though I've entirely lost
    track of where I am in this saga... lol!

    My best,

    Thumbs up Re: THE MINSTREL's LONG TONGUE - ANNO 1666

    Fredrik:
    Very interesting and impressive work. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
    Did the minstrel get his long tongue from having to articulate some of those flute and oboe passages? After a career of dealing with student musicians, I have slight reservations about the rapid tonguing and fingering passages in such a low register for the oboe.

    Hi Steve,

    Have updated the videoscore now! I put some of the fast oboe parts in a higher register, so the minstrel doesn't loose his tongue

    Nice bit of writing. I’m with David in that I think it could be a little slower and not so rushed. It seems the activity that Trevio is undertaking is best not rushed…..

    Hi Trent,

    The piece describes the minstrel's fast heartbeat

    The minstrel's tongue is supported by Mephistofilis, so the speed is a devil's playing flute and oboe!


    Thanks for lending an ear,


    Fred

    Fredrik:
    Good editing. It is still a "barn burner" but much more within the grasp of advanced players. My tired old eyes had a little trouble following your score because I couldn't really see the set up on the left. Are some of those 32nd or 64th notes just written out trills? If so they will sound better live. There is one passage toward the end where your oboist may hyperventilate because of the length of the phrase without a breath.
    I like the frenetic atmosphere it creates and it certainly had MY heart beating faster!
