So what has been going on with your music, Karl? There hasn't been a post in this thread since April.

Thanks for asking, John. Not very much: The March Triad concerts went well, and at some point the videos will get uploaded to YouTube. We were happy, too with the Henning ensemble performance at King's Chapel in April. The only news since (which is shy of actual news) is that the m.d. of the Charles River Wind Ensemble and I have again met face to face, and he sounded genuinely impressed when I spoke of my Symphony for Band. I've sent him PDFs of the first two mvts, so now the waiting has begun. I need to clean up (typographically) the score of the third mvt, and (optimistically) should have that ready, if Matt gets back to me on the piece. First, more immediately practically, I need to proof afresh the two new scores for Ensemble Aubade: Swiss Skis and Feel the Burn (Bicycling Into the Sun) ... they have so faithfully championed Oxygen Footprint, it will nice to have them perform the troika. Once I get those mechanical tasks done, I should return to the string symphony.
We will start talking about rep for the November Triad concerts soon. At the moment, I don't really feel like writing anything more for choir. Perhaps I'll propose returning to one of the numbers from my Mass. I don't believe the Sanctus has been sung yet.

Thanks for the update, Karl. 8) I hope you get more performances soon!

I've repaired Bicycling Into the Sun (Feel the Burn) ... Mysteriously, when I exported the flute and viola parts, Sibelius moved a couple of rehearsal marks to other measures. It seems that this ought not to happen, but it now seems not to be impossible. Just spoke to Peter, who did not say, "there was no problem with Swiss Skis," but, "I forget what the problem with Swiss Skis was." If I were to hazard a guess, it has to do with all the double-stops in the viola. I am hoping that, rather than it being any matter of the part being "impossible," it's just that it's a part that Frank will have to work up, and that the "problem" when they got together to read, was that Frank was faced with a part which it was in no way practical to sight-read. We Shall See.
