Thank you and your wife for being the wonderful loving people you are. I appreciate the varied feelings these crazy events bring to the surface. I wish you, your family, and New Zealand peace. May we rise to a better version of ourselves.
Thinking of you,
Awesome! I think this piece is perfect for you. I have old xerox copies of all six works. This week I ordered the Schott edition from a company in France.
With your introduction a couple of years ago as an influence, I am starting Birds Flew Over the Spire!
Thank you for your kind thoughts,
Thank you. Cool ideas about color. The fires! I will try to play more of the pieces. Your comments always make me feel a little less dorky.
Aside from my color excursions I am working on the levels in CGC.
Hope all is well!
Hi Jeff and Bruce,
Thank you both! The color idea fascinates me. It is kind of like flavors. How would one compose for a flavor? Oregano? Mint?
Yes Bruce, I wonder what Houghton would say? This also reminds me of Pablo Neruda’s odes to things.
Hi Dave, Roger and Judy,
Your kind thoughts give me a boost, much appreciated. The collection has interested me for awhile. Yesterday I thought to share it even though my video is kind of klutzy. I love color. I can live in colors.
Thank you my friends!
Good to see you. I enjoy your playing. Your goals, sense of study and musical focus are an inspiration. Keep up the great work my Sydney Summer School friend!
I am playing it a bit slow, trying it again with much rust! My teacher introduced me to the works some years ago probably because I am an art teacher. He had met the composer. I thought that this would be new for CGC!
Hi, I want to introduce the work ‘Orange’ from Norbert Leclercq’s Six Colours to the site. My cut is rough but it gives a flavor of the work.
When visiting with Simon, Evita, John Rabinowitz and Steve Batazzo I brought the pieces. I have a guitar by John F. Mello that Simon enjoyed playing while he entertained us with…[Read more]
You have worked hard to produce all of the pieces, to bring your individuality and to offer us insight regarding your interpretations. I am interested in your reflections and musical journey!
Keep up the great work,
I thoroughly enjoyed your playing. Your performance is confident, offers subtlety, rhythmic pulse, and musical joy!
Keep up the great work my ensemble partner!
Once again you have inspired us with your eager joy. Thank you for your contribution. I enjoyed all of the selections. Yes, Romanza is harder than it seems…the stretches. Well done!
Enjoy the cello duets—-I have not tried the pieces yet!
I think I have the strain you speak of, I had to miss my classes—-first time in years. As for Birds, I have worked out all of the fingering to an acceptable degree of execution. I will see what adjustments I need to make as I practice!
Keep up the great work!
I have enjoyed your interpretation of Birds. Like Linda, I recall when Julie introduced us to the piece at summer school. I have started to work on it. I am working very slow to try and understand the right hand fingering—-what is best. Something I find with the right hand is that a pattern makes complete sense when written and when p…[Read more]
