Music Composers Unite!
Telegraph stations go warm from coast to coast with warnings about a certain wanted murderer, dead or alive. Meanwhile, on the prairie, our hero is galloping furiously into unknown territory...
The piece has a rather simple structure. Theme A is presented twice. Then comes theme B. Then A is combined with B, in the same register, and with the same instrument. The composition is closed with theme C ("Hero theme"), on the same harmonic pattern as previous themes. I did not attempt to combine C with the other two themes.
I struggled a lot in order to make theme A both melodically enjoyable and at the same time intellectually stimulating.
Hope you find this stimulating or enjoyable. Comments are welcome, but I have no special requests about their content.
