My friend Greg has listened to Tooth Fairy. “I have a question, and an irony,” he said this morning.  The question was, if I had written the text, to which I readily confessed;  and that was all right, because he said he liked the text.  The irony was (and here it is June) he was listening to the piece with his laptop open, and he had bills organized on the table, and he scarcely believed his ears, because there he was, looking at postage stamps illustrated with children on sleds.  “How did I know?,” was my immediate rhetorical query.

I sent these comments to Karl after perusing the score:


"Your style is immediately recognizable in the opening bars!  And I really enjoyed bars 5 ff. which are very ear-catching.  The little dialogue with the pizzicato strings was equally intriguing.

And then the hymn-like section started!  I was reminded just a little of some of the Rimsky-Korsakov works with Russian Orthodox chants.

Excellent development and integration of the opening elements: the F# minor/D/A/F minor back and forth (F# minor one of my favorites) catches my ear at least! 

I really like the string responses in Section E, along with the juxtaposition of the clarinet in Section H against the hymnic strings, as if a juggler is performing in a church while the choir sings.  The 32nd-notes in the strings in Section I are smeared by the MIDI, but should stand out with a nostalgic feel in a real performance.

The real "stand out" is Section J!  Brilliant!  The three-part juxtaposition approaches The Surreal, and maybe enters it!  If you have any second thoughts about the work at all, you might want to expand that part somehow: most delicious!

And yes, I think the work concludes well!"

Karl. That's really a strong piece! The way you use imitation to accentuate the harmonic changes without being abrupt (sec. C, D)  as well as the canonic passages later seep things serene without being static. You have such a subtle touch with overlapping rhythms (I may borrow this!) and chorale-like textures. Nice going!

Yesterday afternoon, I played clarinet as part of the No-Name Orchestra, a volunteer community group which serves a very nice local purpose/need.  This rehearsal was the ostensible driver for getting Deep Breath wrapped up, although I think the piece would be more than this group could reasonably manage.

At one o'clock today, I went to the First Parish Church in Billerica where organist Michael Joseph gave an informal demo of the instrument.  He will be giving a recital there in the fall (had originally planned on a recital this spring, decided to push the program out, but wanted there to be an event this side of summer).  It was nicely set up.  The pews face the pulpit, of course, and the organ loft is to the congregation's back;  so they set up a camera, and a view of the organist at the bench was projected onto a screen so that the audience could view in comfort.  He stepped through each of the stops, so (even though I have already compose a bit of music for organ) I learnt much from the demo.

And at 3 o'clock, the Charles River Wind Ensemble gave a concert in neighboring Lexington.  It is a good community group, and I have a fair sense of how to write into their strengths.  Enjoyed a very cordial chat with both one of the clarinetists and the director.  (As a result, of course, I am motivated to get more work done on The Nerves.)

This morning (id est, before shipping off to church) I finished polishing the new Sibelius file of the “Henning classic,” Hurricane Relief from 2005.  (The occasion has been, Lux Nova Press are prepping a one-pager with available publications, including bassoon.)

Here is the MIDI:

That could be a clerical error. We are investigating, sending the appropriate messages, and is there anything else I can do for you today.

I think I'll go back and emend it to Unattended.

To review:  Out From the Unattended Baggage was a one-minute trio (fl/cl/bn) submitted to a call from the Fifteen Minutes of Fame set.  Lux Nova Press is presently compiling a one-pager Music for Bassoon sheet, and thus, Mark asked me about making this too-brief bagatelle the core of a short suite.  Which I think an excellent idea, although (a) I'll let it wait until after 1. The Nerves, 2. Heart So White, and 3. the Rapido project; and (b) as a result, I should re-cast the Opus number.

Thanks!  I am shopping it around . . . .

I expect that "graduation season," and the Memorial Day weekend approaching, are contributing to the non-response as yet.

OTOH, I can probably send 'refresher' messages on Saturday morning . . . .
