    Bolero

    I don't know why I felt compelled to compose this, but I did it. About 8 minutes of pipe organ, with a relentless bolero pedal. I kept it short, as I fear the organist would develop leg cramps from stomping out that rhythm. I had some trouble keeping it simple and tonal. It did not receive spousal approval!

    Richard,

    Yes, it was a little different coming from you. I could sort of sence you were fighting your break out atonal urges. I think it worked pretty well as an organ Bolero which is an interesting concept, and also using the foot pedal for the rythmn.

    I wonder what would be the result if you hadn’t held back. Would it still be a recognizable Bolero? Would it matter?

    Well, you will have a chance to discover the answers. I am working on the part that I did not write, but which existed as a concept. Part of it will be clearly bolero, and in some parts, the bolero, while present, will not be so obvious. Not much will be done for a few days, as I will be seeing my ophthalmologist tomorrow, and that always leaves me quite weary for about two days. But it keeps me from going blind, so it is worth the trouble
