    Adagio of the "Suite Franzetti"

    Hello
    This is an adagio written on request for the organ of La-Roche-sur-Foron, a very nice organ classified "monument historique".
    I hope you will like it
    Don't be surprised if your hear some thin bells, I have been asked to use every stops of this organ.
    Friendly yours. Jean-Paul

    Musicalis, this would sound good at Christmas time. It's pretty enough.
    I like it.

    J-Paul,

    Is this adagio part of a larger work? Just curious ... was it a deliberate factor for the piece, which starts out in A minor to end in E major instead of the original key or, perhaps, A major ... seems like it wants to resolve for a finish.

    Nice work ... again, from this strange organist ... I am sitting here in total awe pondering over your gift as a wonderful composing abilities.

    Thanks for sharing this newest tune and score with this community.

    Here is the story of this adagio.

    At the begining I have offered to the visitors of my site Musicalis (http://musicalis.monespace.net/pages/11.html)to compose for them (for free) if they need a music for a special event. I have been asked a music that sound like a Limonaire organ, for an old italian instrument. So I wrote "Fairy Day" (http://organ.monespace.net/pages/13.html).
    Then the organist asked for more music, including "fairy day" in a kind of symphonie.
    I prefer to call it the "suite Franzetti", franzetti is the organ builder.
    The suite will have 4 parts :
    1) Fairy day , in A minor
    2) happy evening (not written yet), may be in C or F
    3) Fairy night (this adagio)
    4) Happy morning (not completed), starting in A major and changing quickly for E flat major (to imitate the moving colors of the sky when the sun is rising).
    Friendly yours. Jean-Paul

    Thanks J-Paul for the explanation.

    Seeing now the adagio is part of a larger work, it does make sense for its ending in E major, as it is "leading" to the last movement. Appreciate the complete picture.
