Music Composers Unite!
I started composing because of the music in the movie "The Sting" - the ragtime of Scott Joplin.

Here is my first "finished" orchestral piece.
She is warm was inspired by scenes from Shakespeare's Winter Tale.
King Leontes believes he has caused the death of his wife some sixteen years earlier.
After finally redeeming himself he is told there has been a statue made of the late queen.
The statue "magically" comes to life and at first afraid he touches its hand and exclaims "Oh, she is warm".

This was written for a clarinettist friend of mine whose husband was involved in a terrible car accident and will probably never get full use of his legs again.
