I am an enthusiastic amateur musician - mainly on the cello with the Stratford Symphony orchestra and various chamber groups but also a bit of classical guitar and piano. I started composing about 15 years a go and try a do something whenever I get any time away from work which is not often these days. More recently I also started making classical guitars in the garage putting my woodworking skills to productive use where I can enjoy playing the fruits of my labour.
I’ve given up waiting for a s/w update to Overture 5 so finally sat down to endure the bugs and write something new for the first time in a year as we have a cello nite coming up with the end of lockdown in sight.
I have just finished revising a new suite for string orchestra called the Elements (Earth, Water, Air and Fire) following an initial round of comments from a few friends. Hopefully this version is a little more interesting!
Notation was made with Sonic Scores’ Overture 5 and recordings were made using the Amadeus Symphony Orchestra VSTi.
