It has been AGES since I posted.... life has simply been too busy for me to do so. I have popped in once in awhile, but in sort of a drive-by mode rather than intent on doing any posting or commenting.
It appears that soon my life will return to some semblance of normal, but there are some hurdles to overcome in the next weeks before that happens.
Having said that, I simply HAD to take a short moment to post a demo from my recent purchase of the Steinway Basic..
This is the first movement of Sigfried Reda's Sonate for piano - Reda was one of those (currently neglected) 20th Century modern German composers. As I have mentioned in the past, the unfortunate stigma of WW2 led to many of these fine composers being marginalized , even when most of them did their best to stay out of the politics or even openly objected (some at great personal and professional cost).
I have greatly enjoyed exploring these mostly unheard works, and now share this one with you - it reminds me much of Hindemith in spots.
Initial work was done in Finale 2009, final tweaking and application of impulse reverb in Reaper.
This rendition dedicated to:
- et Lux, for his friendship and support
- rbowser, for his love of minimal reverb
- Tom, for his appreciation of my obscure "finds"
Now, I crawl back under my rock for a couple of weeks - I shall return soon!
