    "Hummingbird"

    Bird Lovers,

    This was originally one of my solo piano works. I augmented it by writing additional measures and adding strings.

    This is my "Hummingbird". It is the musical depiction of the flights and antics of the tiny birds. It is playable.

    The piano is JABB and the strings are Garritan Personal Orchestra.

    Regards,

    It seems music for a classical ballet, very graceful and elegant. The hummingbird (the piano part)would be the ballerina and the strings are all that sourround and interact with her.

    OK, but I refuse to wear a tutu.

    Thanks for listening, Mr. Keyboard.

    Hi Larry,

    I am a bird lover!

    In fact my name here is after a kind of small hummingbirds that
    are called: sunbirds...

    They live only in our region of the world.

    I like them because they are so cute, happy, chatty and quick moving.
    They are always in a good mood and express it in their flight and 'talk'.

    I think you have captured their essence quite well!

    The true hummingbird lives on nectar for the most part. Does this fit the description of your Sunbird? If so, I have learned something new today.

    Thanks for the information and thank you for listening.

    I love to watch hummers. I wish that I had their energy.

    Some of the males can be very aggressive as they protect "their" territory.

    Mr. Larry:

    Yeah. This sounds like the flitting, darting, cute little guys and gals
    that dance around my bird feeder everyday. It is about 5 feet from
    my music studio window and their presence gives me a feeling of being
    very close to nature when I'm kind of thinking about what to write next.........lol

    They are crafty little guys and the males have that beautiful "Red"
    color on their heads. We keep them fed year 'round and love to see
    them on a daily basis.

    Anyway, back to the piece. I not only think it is playable, I also
    think that it is not that difficult. Perpetual motion, yes, but very
    playable.

    And entertaining 2m 21s Larry.


    BRAVO,

    I commend you, Mr. Jack, for providing food for the little hummers. They are a joy to watch, aren't they?

    Since they are migrating birds, it is amazing that the weather in your part of California stays warm enough for the hummingbirds to remain there year-round.

    I appreciate your message and comments.

    Best Regards,
