" Kendini görebilmek için içindeki yaşamı durdurmak zorundasın. "

Sevgili Glenn,
Yalnız senin ellerini bağışlayan o ağaca sarılarak goldberg varyasyonları’nı dinledim bugün, yine.. Asmadan oklar birer birer göğsüme doldu, ve bununla yaşamam gerektiğini fısıldadı; dağıtılmış taşlarda kalan bir ses.
Üşüdüm, çok üşüdüm. Bir kez olsun, kendini acı eden’e dokunamadım.

Happy Birthday, Chopin! A true virtuoso.

Scenes for Small Orchestra, Op. 3. Written for Harp Strings.

Got my music mojo back, and I finished my long suffering piece for orchestra, Scenes for Small Orchestra, Op. 3. The brass section is small: 2 Horns, 1 Trumpet, and most of the piece is sort of pastoral in nature. Two each of the woodwinds are included, plus Harp, which I’m not yet comfortable using, and I’ve already identified some places that will need a rewrite. But overall, I’m pretty happy with everything else.

Make my day and give it a listen…
