Two Irish Dances for Flute, Violin, and PianoThis composition was entered into the recent dance contest on this site where it attracted several comments, which I appreciate and wanted to respond to, but due to the complexity of the discussion and the length of the postings dealing with all the entries, I find it difficult to follow.  So I'm posting this piece separately…See More

"Hi Jon, I listened Four Ukiyo-e for solo flute.... Beautiful...  It is a gem.  Beautiful pieces of stones... Butterfly bar 11 Fnatural could be indicated as optional natural. All the best."

Articles from New Music USA

Posted on August 16, 2019 at 11:28am 0 Comments

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.  

Although the phrase Medieval music is likely to suggest to the general listener Gregorian chant and the church music of such composers as Hildegard von Bingen, there also exists a considerable body of Medieval secular song, most notably by the Minnesingers of the…

Posted on May 27, 2019 at 12:23pm 2 Comments

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…
