Maybe Late or Early


I think this post fits my blog for ‘creative’ stuff …

In May last year I sketched the outline of a melody as a piano piece, and promptly forgot about it.  However something has got me into music mode over the past couple of weeks, starting with rediscovering that wonderful Elgar symphony No 3, so brilliantly constructed from his sketches by Anthony Payne.  I am so glad Elgar’s dying wishes, to have the sketches burnt, were disregarded.  What a loss if that glorious piece hadn’t surfaced.

Here is the link, for anyone interested.

Anyway, as soon as I found my little snatch I wanted to complete it.  After having done so I traced a few pleasing pictures from that time frame, and the result is here …

Now I need to go back to my much-neglected trio with only one movement to date.

    Not having much idea about music except that I like it, this had a Bach sound to it to my mind. I didn’t listen to the Elgar I didn’t want it to influence me.
    I agree, it is a pleasant piece that you’ve produced. Do you plan to enlarge and finish it? Will it be just a piano piece of will it be orchestrated?
    Haven’t seen you on my pages lately, Are you Okay or am I in the dog house with my dog Coco?

      Thanks for being, as yet, the sole visitor here.
      I think the piece will remain the diversion it is. I really should pay attention to the larger unfinished work, the trio, and then I’d like to play with another symphony.
      My visits have been curtailed due to getting back into harmonising, and all sorts of things to do around the house, but I’ll catch up.
