Giwro,

Listened to your new composition yesterday and again today while online in this forum. Wonderful work you have done so far - look forward to hearing more of this piece as it progresses. I absolutely love Organ/Orchestra compositions - there aren't enough of them ... yours takes a real fresh approach and is very enjoyable.

Thanks for sharing this with our community here.

Hi Giwro,

WOW!!! Now thats a very effectful work. I really enjoyed it and am grateful that you shared another labor of love. While listening to it, my mind "added" a trombone choir to it. The Contrabass Trombone is a hobby of mine these days so that's why I also heard the trombone choir with my mind's eye. I wish you a successful completion of what, imho, will be a terrific addition to the Organ/Orchestra repertoire. Congratulations dear sir.

Cheers,

Corno Dolce

Sadly, I didn't hear the trombone choir in my head...

Someday I may write a concerto for larger forces - right now I'm trying to get used to using smaller combinations.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Cheers,

giwro - wow - I really, really like it. I couldn't hear a celeste ... but then again it's a very, very quiet instrument up against some noisey ones.

bravo - Mister Giwro - bravo :-)
