"Jon, I think it has kind of a Renaissance feel to it. With "raspberry" in the title I was expecting some tuba farts."

Roseberry And Raspberry For Flute Violin Cello And Percussion

Roseberry And Raspberry For Flute Violin Cello And PercussionThe melody is adapted from a Russian folk song. I've a version of this for solo flute previously.I'm not posting the score yet, but in it the introductory cello solo is marked "dynamics, vibrato, and rubato ad lib." so you'll have to use your imagination, since I'm not going to try to create those variations…See More

"Thanks for the replies -- I'm glad people like it. Since choirs might be looking for Christmas songs now, I've decided to make some arrangements of good ones that don't seem too familiar to most people, taken from old texts."

Anatolia for String Quartet

Anatolia for String QuartetThis composition is an attempt to use the special qualities of the traditional string quartet to explore quite a different form of music than what has been classically associated with this ensemble, by the use of various musical techniques drawn from Mediterranean, and especially Eastern Mediterranean, traditions. While the key is ostensibly C…See More

In this blog post I'll mention two recent articles from that site which composers may find interesting.

Brief review: A Medieval Songbook: Troubadour & Trouvere

Posted on June 13, 2019 at 4:57pm 0 Comments

A Medieval Songbook: Troubadour & Trouvere by Feltcher Collins, Jr. et al.  (University Press of Virginia, 1982) is a valuable resource for performers and listeners of medieval music.

It's usually described as a collection of English tunes, but many of them have origins…

The Great Waltz is a classic "Hollywoodization" bio-pic, one which hardly pretends to be accurate, but which uses the life story of a historical character as a basis for atmosphere and entertainment. In this case the subject is "The Waltz King" Johann Strauss II, who was responsible for the craze for the dance that conquered Vienna and much of Europe in the mid 19th…
