    Wasada (2d Mvt)

    After a long break from the first movement, the second movement is now completed, in part, by using bits and pieces of Bustards and Big Bustards, both of which have been euthanised and dissected for for parts.

    What! You shot the bustards and chopped 'em up?
    But Richard, I liked the bustards... ah, well.

    On the other hand, I rather enjoyed Wasada/2, as
    well -- perhaps there's a future in this dissection and
    reassembly approach...

    Well, I liked the parts, but I did not like the assembly. And, the parts were exactly what I needed to finish Wasada II, so now I can go on to Wasada III.

    Richard,

    Here I sit in Wash DC on business for the 4th day out of 7 in a hotel and missing my family, home and roots - hence I return to the GPO site to listen to some music for comfort. WELL, your composition is magnificent! The first thing that simply blows me a way is your technique on the piano. The second thing is your wonderous skills at composition. Third is how prolific you are.

    Not sure what else to say but but bravissimo!

    Well, thanks, guys. I truly appreciate your comments. They help me overcome my weekly midlife crises.

    The reason I am rather prolific is that I spend most of my day gardening, walking Shilo (my dog), writing music (many hours) and some time at piano practice.

    For the record, that is indeed me at the GPO Steinway, but slow motion, step time, and whatever else I need to do to make the rendition sound live. Arthritis has been a problem since 1945 or so, and piano playing has always been somewhat erratic in quality. I have a low tolerance for medication, so I play when I can, but not the many hours a day as 50 years ago. It is my piano and organ playing that enables me to provide a reasonably realistic rendition. I am still working on improving that aspect.

    Richard
