Now that I’m done teaching for the semester and the choir season has ended, Ive had a bit more time to do things like, well, post on this blog! Another example of catching up, I’ve updated the list of compositions. It’s rather huge – I apparently hadn’t looked at it recently. I had a chance to catalogue it all and get it edited and ready for public consumption.
Today’s improvisation is an attempt, emphasis on attempt, to do something more in the style of Vierne. One of the fun aspects of improvisation is trying to mimic those you admire most. It, in turn, also has an affect on my compositions as I learn about new things I like to hear and incorporate. The one thing that is missing, is a chromatic sequence of some kind. Maybe next time!
