    5 UNLIKELY VISIONS - Kowalski (mp3 and pdf score)

    Hello all,

    I have finally finished my orchestral suite Five Unlikely Visions. The last movement to be finished was Room in Filtered Light, which I completed this weekend. The movements I had shared here earlier have been cleaned up and remixed, and all five movements now have complete downloadable scores in pdf file if you'd like to study or follow along. The entire suite is a little over 13 minutes long. All sounds are GPO and JABB.

    Here is the complete list of files:
    I - Overgrowth (Allegro con brio): mp3 file - pdf file
    II - A Miniature Spectacle (Moderato): mp3 file - pdf file
    III - Room in Filtered Light (Adagio): mp3 file - pdf file
    IV - Suddenly Moths (Vivace): mp3 file - pdf file
    V - Dust Ascending (Larghetto): mp3 file - pdf file

    Thank you for listening.

    At last! As you know, I've been following this suite along
    with much interest, Jamie.

    Let me just get to the point:

    BRAVO!

    Lean, spare, and economical Kowalski at its very best, this
    is a musical feast, nonetheless; with a richness in color and
    substance that consistently belies the chasteness of the
    writing.

    My friend, most definitely, an achievement in which you may
    justly take much pride.

    With admiration,

    David.

    Jamie,

    Really fine writing there and that is a LOT of music. I know what a task it is to write a work that large and score it on top of everything else. Your use of the GPO really made it all happen.

    Thanks for sharing it with us.

    David, thank you for your support and encouragement while I posted sections of this over the past couple of months. It's feedback like yours that convinced me to post the entire work with the printed scores.

    I'm simply bowled over by your description. I don't believe anyone on these forums listens to posted works with more passion and intensity than you. And coming from such an accomplished composer as yourself, it means all the more to me.

    Thank you for listening, Gary. It really was a lot of work, especially finishing up the last 10% of it! I don't believe I would have written this if it were not for GPO. So much of this work I would have considered too chancy to write if I could not hear it and refine it as I went along.

    Thank you, Michael. I did submit the first four completed movements to a composition competition that could lead to a multiple performances if the right people like it.

    Other than that, no immediate plans for performance.

    Hi Jamie:

    Just listened to your "Visions" Suite. Excellent writing, excellent orchestration, excellent rendering with GPO.

    Grade: A+

    Seriously, Jamie, I really enjoyed hearing a well-constructed piece in the contemporary genre. It is very descriptive of the titles you have given to the individual movements and is very artistic project.

    BRAVO

    Thanks for the comments, Jack. I appreciate it. It's funny, but the titles are always the hardest part for me!

    Jamie,
    What can I say but BRAVO! Each movement was a treat unto itself and they all are superbly written. Your writing for percussion is masterful and inspiring. I hope this finds its way into a concert hall, it deserves to.
