Hi Harmonia. I've tried to upload links to 3 of my tunes, but they don't seem to work. Clicking on them only shows something like a 'buffering" or uploading display. No sound. I think I did the steps correctly. I'd like to be able to share the Violin Concerto in particular.
I was wondering if you had more recordings of your music on a streaming site or similar? I've listened through American Triptych a few times. Having been exposed to Gershwin at a tender age (thanks to Disney), American Triptych strikes a chord with me, and I'm kind of hungry for more now. :)
Thanks for letting me know! I have nominated it again, but this time just the first piece in the suite (Allemande). All of them are wonderful though! I am currently working on "Les Trois Mains". It is a delightful piece and so much fun to play! I'm considering performing that one for the CHMTA festival in March (I still don't know yet though).
Thanks for your comment. My favorite Ricercatas are probably #7 and #10. I agree with Sylvia that the Repertoire bank is lacking a lot of important compositions. I've been considering uploading a lot of pieces that I enjoy over the next few months.
Thank you so much for your kind birthday greetings. It means a lot to me, that there are people who remember my music. There is a third piano/violin duet I composed this summer. It is called "Intermezzo" and one can hear it on my website www.gretafunk.ch. All the best and furtheron good success in your promising projects.
Thank you, Julie. Yes, I had a wonderful day. It could have been a bad one, since I was away from my family and it was both my birthday and Fathers' Day. But the net came to my resque. Among the gratulations there was a nice video from my son, who studies theater and they have had a course in acrobatics. He showed a nice little stunt. More about how he is progressing.
I on my turn participated in a course about big band score arranging. We spent the weekend studying the art and writing our own music. I did a Glenn Miller pastiche, a medley of four Finnish traditional military marches. All participants' works were performed in the ending concert by a very talented youth big band and I got to conduct my own piece. Everyone had fun, even the players, although they had way too little rehearsal time for pur pieces. I managed to fool at least one of the participants, who thought afterwards that one of the marches in my medley was American Patrol.
