[Matisse] was interested neither in fending off opposition,
nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.
His only competition was with himself. — Françoise Gilot

At last, back at work on The Heart. Disregard p.5 and on, all empty staves.

25 minutes to go!



And now the Opus 169 #4



Another gemstone for Karl's already glittering oeuvre! 


Note the meditative, bittersweet atmosphere: bars 27 ff. and bars 52 ff. were especially intriguing to the ear.



At last, back at work on The Heart.



What a band Karl has constructed here!   Some of my favorite timbres: Alto Flute, English Horn, Bass Clarinet, Bass Saxophone, Euphonium!   I told Karl that the 4 Flute/Bass Clarinet section (bars 33 ff.) was an ear-grabber!

Alas, sound issues crept in, and at last seemed unrecoverable.  Good to see you there, Davey!  Thanks for the support!

Yeah your piece survived, the audio problems happened after that.  It sounds like they had the Zoom call occurring in the lobby and didn't think about how they broadcast it.  They were capturing both audio feeds which included Fahad's signal with a delay in the lobby along with his original feed.  All they had to do was either mute or disable their audio in the lobby while he was talking and then it would have been fine.

I've just been enjoying the eloquent organ work 'Fancy on Psalm 80' on You Tube and I shall be returning to it. The theme is going round my head now!
