    Fingal's cave

    Welcome to Fingal's Cave which is a Scottish cave. (UAMH BINN is the Gaelic name.)


    Thanks for visiting "FINGAL'S CAVE"



    (the piece "Nautilus" is now part of another work, "The Mysterious Island")

    After a heavy storm, the Nautilus finds shelter in a sea cave.
    Captain Nemo discovers an underwater tunnel that takes him deeper and deeper down, until he and his men reach a mysterious black hole at the bottom of the seabed!

    Did I somehow miss this one, Fred... or the new thread --
    you write so much, it's a challenge just to keep track
    of you, let alone keep up with you... lol!

    Wild, enticing, sky-rocket of a ride in this! My gosh,
    I had to strap myself in over here... rofl! If this is
    a cave, it's got a couple of jet engines shooting
    out the back of it... Loved it!

    My best,

    Like I said before!


    ""Such an entertaining frantic escape from a monstrous yet looney forbiddon cave!!

    You like that bass trombone?

    The rapid piano was a brave change; also enjoyed the lonely timpani area; "could hear an echo?".

    Great work Fred!

    Hi Michael,

    The interesting thing about "Fingal's Cave" is that Felix Mendelssohn visited this cave while in Scotland.
    Here is a video showing how it looks today.

    enjoy the video!

    And he was inspired to write "The Hebrides Overture".

    Very explosive, adventurous, and frantic indeed!

    A very intruiging piece that make you want to keep pondering of what the next measures would be like.

    Fredrik:

    Well you certainly have captured the magnitude and magnificence
    of this Scottish cave. Your music is very descriptive and, while
    listening, I could also imagine your composition as a "descriptive
    musical instrument" for appropriate cinematic purposes.

    Excellent writing Fredrik and so well rendered.

    BRAVO,

    Hi Romeo,

    Yes, it's a hell of a cave! It gave me a lot of strange inspiration!
