Dance of the Russian Elves – for piano

Piano music composition by David Alabaster – July 2003

Felt inspired – just finished it but unfortunately it’s too difficult for me to play – now there’s a change. Elves now Russian at George’s suggestion and have to dance a bit longer.

Variations on a bar by Brahms – for cello quartet

Cello ensemble piece composed by David Alabaster  – Oct 2003

Another Celli quartet for our next cello night. Chose a bar (154) at random from Brahms Tragische Overture. Don’t ask how we got to 154!  If you really want to know then read Stenson off the wall
