Its the first day of summer here in the southern hemisphere and its 34 degrees C.
This is the 2nd movement of my Summer quartet, called Summer night.
Its the only one of the 3 movements that I've recorded so far.
I would say its one of my most melodious pieces. Incidentally the 1st and 3rd movements are very exuberant, energetic pieces in contrast to the more relaxed feel with this one, but it does have some tension in parts.
Like Mariza I find that writing in major can be more difficult melody wise than in minor. Anyone else find that?
I would be interested to think what people think on 1st hearing and if they have time, any subsequent ones...
