Revised as of 1/28/15, Skating is my most finished piece to date. It's from a three-movement work called Three Winter Scenes. It's an impressionistic piece, intended to depict skaters on a frozen pond or river, and attempts to capture the exhilaration of being outside on a cold but beautiful winter day, as well as the elements of snow, sun, clouds, etc. Sounds are Garritan, Vienna, Cinematic Strings2 and EWSO Gold, as well as some sounds from Sonar. While I strive for transparency, I realize that there may not be enough expression for some listeners. My style might be called Baroque Impressionism. The variation arises between sections, more than within individual instruments. Much Baroque music is like this. Also, while not being contrapuntal in a strict sense, there is a good deal of part writing. My intention is that, out of the various parts, a form arises, in which the voices create a multi-layered whole, which presents the listener with a subtly changing palette of colors. For this version I added a saxophone.
