    "Gypsy Fire"

    This is my composition for solo violin and Garritan Steinway piano, "Gypsy Fire".

    And it's perfectly named, Larry.

    I'm a sucker for energetic, folk-inspired pieces. You captured a Gypsy spirit very aptly - and with at least one musical surprise in the track when there's a less Gypsy-like section which does a perfect job of bridging between two other more Gypsy-like sections.

    What violin did you use on this? I can't keep track of that large bag-of-tricks of yours!

    Thanks for the fiery music.

    The piano is the Garritan Steinway D and the violin is EWQL.

    Thanks for having a listen, Mister Rand'.

    Hello Larry, this sounds great! I love the piece as a whole, and the recording sounds very clean. It is very easy to imagine this being performed in a smoke-filled pub a century or so ago.

    It's being performed in the woods around a large, crackling Gypsy camp fire. How they got the piano out there is anybody's guess.

    Thanks for listening. I appreciate your message, Mister Michael.

    That was some real fine fiddling Larry and the piano was no slouch either.

    Pretty impressive work!

    It was a rewarding listen.

    Hi Larry,

    Sorry to comment so late (and put this back on page one ... I know you must have a dozen new pieces to post!), but I had been listening for a while and fell behind in my comments.

    Loved this ... I love the Gypsy genre, and this is like Gypsy-classical music; so well developed. Really enjoyed the cadenza ... a perfect finish!

    A friend of mine has been taking guitar lessons from a fellow named Stephane Wrembel (wrote and played "Bistro Fada" for Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris"); he is the modern day Django and has a nice website. I mention this because I know you started out as a plectrum player!

    Best regards (Spring training right around the corner ... better brush-up on your Japanese, Tex )

    Frank
