    "Stratosphere"

    This is my "Stratosphere" ,featuring the Garritan piccolo trumpet with a small group of GPO strings.

    Mr. Larry -

    Nice tune, Mr. Larry! It showcases your talent as a composer! Is this a new piece that you just finished writing or is this coming from a collection of works written a while back??

    I probably asked this of you in the past so please forgive me if I'm repeating myself (again), but do you write your compositions down before recording them or do you record them off the top of your heard? Actually, let me ask you like this: How do you compose and render (record) your music like this one? I'm just curious. But no matter the process, I always admire and enjoy your compositions and the fact that you seemingly write so many in a relatively short amount of time.

    Hope you're over the flu and that your feeling better, Mr. Larry! As always, Happy Composing to you!

    Hi Larry,


    You've made me very happy again. One of the very first classical pieces I've ever consumed (and you may take this literally) was the trumpet concert by J. Haydn, with chamber orchestra and performed by Maurice André, the French virtuoso (former miner). You know I really appreciate your brilliant classical style. Here again, you demonstrate your versatility and musical baggage.

    Thanks, many thanks, Larry!

    I wrote this one a while back, Mister Ted. I do compose "off of the top of my head".

    I am in the process of whipping a really bad case of the influenza and it's about time! It nearly put this old dude six feet under.

    Thanks for your message, my friend.

    Larry,

    A very nice solo trumpet piece with your as always splendid counterpoint.

    My father almost did me in with the tire of a hay wagon when I was two. Close but no cigar.

    I'm glad to see you back here.

    I'm glad that I never met your Father.

    Thanks for the good words, Mister Phil. I'm still hanging on at an "advanced" age.

    Larry! I always enjoy a good trumpet piece! Did I hear some influence from the trumpet Bible "Arban's" in there?

    Nope. No influence from Mr. Arban. I certainly do remember his exercise books from long ago.

    Thanks for your message, Mister Rodney.

    Neither influenza can beat you, nor anything else. You live forever with the joy of making music for us poor earthlings, who constantly are trying getting some decent tunes from GPO.
