Gary - are you still out there somewhere??
Looking through the Listening Room, I just now discovered, to my surprise, that I didn't acknowledge your last post - nobody else did either. Bad oversight on our part!
This has a really pleasant gentleness to it, far afield from the edgier pieces I usually associate with your output - I like!---Maybe other people can catch it now that it'll be back at the top.
Arrigo Beyle / Milanese / Lived, wrote, loved -- Stendhal
Being Italian is a full-time job -- B. Severgnini
I always look forward to your band work; so cool that on this forum there are specialists who's love of a particular genre gives all of us an opportunity to share in something different than our own little part of the musical universe.
Like nearly every one of your pieces that I've listened to over the years, I really liked this one ... but ... like many of your recordings, it sounds so distant and overly reverbarant that your great writing is minimized to the extent I'm sure I'm missing at least half of what you went to the trouble to create.
I wish I could help you in this area but wouldn't know how; maybe someone with a similar system can. You are such a talented musican and create such nice music.
Nice work on this, Gary.
I think this is a very good work, just to learn how a brass ensemble be used....
I like the contrast between the first (slower) and the second (faster) part....
