    Lugano Concerto for Violin

    Here is something I posted a long time ago. I re-recorded it using my new PowerMac G5, so I could do it in one step. I fixed some parts and did a little orchestration work. I think it is much improved from the old one and really conveys my intent better.

    For those who haven't heard it yet, I composed it in the week I was in Lugano, Switzerland playing the Blues to Bop Festival last September. What an amazing place.

    I take it you await the arrival of the morphing violin with baited breath?

    Another very stylish piece. Is this purely done with GPO?

    I'm not sure I will be able to afford the new violin, and I don't know how many Violin concerti I intend to right anyway!

    It's all GPO. Thanks for listening.

    Nice.
    I live near Lugano, and it's funny imagine that maybe the slightly melanconic and old fashioned athmosphere of the old lake has inspired you.

    Fabio: If I had the money, me and the guys from the band would be out there in a second. The road that goes up the mountains into Switzerland was just friggin awesome. We received such a warm welcome from the huge crowds at the Blues to Bop Festival. They didn't say "One more song!", they would say "FOUR more songs!"

    I should post some pics of the places I sat and composed. Thanks for your comments. BTW.... fastest I have ever composed a work of this magnitude. Less than one week if I don't count the endless hours listening to violin concerti, planning, then after it was complete the time spent trying to get an ok GPO performance.

    Whew, a pretty long work, but mmmmm, this was a delicious piece. The violin was spendidly dynamic, as were the other strings. I especially like that segment that starts at 3:14 (pi time), it sounds sort of familiar, did you post a demo using it before? Oh, wait, I just read the original post again What a musical memory I have! The orchestration sounds nice, but the violin solos are wonderful. You must get this morphin-stradevized, even if you can't afford it until 2010 Or even better, performed! Thanks for sharing!
