    "Pavane pour une infante défunte" - from Eric Riddel

    Eric Riddel has sent in an mp3 of Maurice Ravel's well-known 'Pavane pour une infante défunte'. It is my simple adaptation of a short arrangement by Eumir Deodato of the original.

    Eric did the piece as a tribute inmemory of several members of hisfamily who passed away in 2005.

    Here is the link:

    The solo and section strings, Steinway piano, timpani, tubular bells, and wind machine from GPO were used in addition to the fretless electric bass (which Eric played himself).

    Very nice tribute Eric. I like the dream-like quality of your adaptation (the wind machine was a nice effect too).

    Thanks for sending this Eric!

    Those French characters in the URL!
    I renamed and see if that works.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments - I am truly humbled considering the sources of those compliments. Music, while a lifelong love of mine, is not my profession but my hobby. This was the first time that I have tried GPO and I could go on and on listing my deficiencies in its use! Perhaps my next attempts will be more polished and dynamic. Still, I am delighted that my effort was heard and appreciated!

    Thank you again kindly.

    Very best regards ,

    Very impressive music! Makes me shiver ...

    I should cram my old fretless bass out of the corner again.
