    Lightbulb Parisorium

    Hello everybody,

    This piece is dedicated to the city "PARIS", which during Roman times was spelled "PARISORIUM."

    Welcome to "PARISORIUM"


    Enjoy, Fred

    I kept listening all the way thru the end. It puzzled me. What has this to do with Paris? Nevertheless, I was rather caught by this piece. You showed one statue (don't know the right english word), but the music pictures a lot of them. Nicely done!!

    Interesting work. I definitely hear a Gershwin influence. I like the melodies you have worked into the piece. It does remind me of a little french cafe in some sections of this work.

    A great mixture of styles here to capture the activity
    and sounds of such a "busy" city with so much to offer.

    Really good writing Frederik. Everything adds to the
    total mix in its own independent way.


    BRAVO,

    Hi Rich,

    When you talk about of a little cafe, it makes me want to go to Paris again! I don't know how many times I've been there, maybe about 4-5 times.

    It's a city full of fresh scents and good food! I love to eat escargots there with my wife and drink a glass of wine with it! Walk around in Saint-Germain des Pres, walk on the Champs-Elyssees all the way to Place de la Concorde, then further to the Eiffel Tower.

    Gershwin! Yes, now that you have mentioned him, I can hear what you were referring to. This 2nd theme in my piece came to me in 1984. At that time I did not reflect on its American character, lol! That was fun to think about! That's what makes this forum so fun, Rich!

    I really appreciate your mature and charming comments!
    You are a knowledgeable and highly emotional composer, which you really have proved to be in your piece:

    "Knight Quest".

    Regards,

    Fred

    Hi Jack,

    Yes, I brought two of my favorite themes together in my new GPO orchestrated journey to Paris!

    The 2nd theme dates back to 1984 and was originally part of a suite called "Hermes' songs", inspired by a Shakespeare play.

    What a FUN listen! This is a GREAT composition and orchestration. It seems to capture the business of a large city like Paris. I appreciate your skills in writing this piece! And I appreciate you sharing it to us.

    Cheers!

    Another great musical story piece.

    It goes great with a little imagination and maybe a cup of expresso.

    I can hear a lot of work going into this.

    Hi again, Phil!

    Thanks for lending an ear! Expresso is a perfect idea. I remember I once took a cup of expresso at the "Arc de Triomphe" in the 80s. I had to pay 80 Francs, but it was worth it, lol!
