I started this January 1, 2011 as a string study. But, of course, I got carried away with the line and movement. I modeled Copeland's "Quiet City" (more in mood than in compositional technique. However, my piece has several declamatory erruptions which break the mood of solitude. I will be taking this to our composing seminar tomrrow and thought you might like to hear what I came up with. Be forwarned, it is a 12 minute work.
P.S. I promise to be more active this year.
