Well, it's as done as it will ever be. Here it is, after four weeks. This last week I spent eight hours a day on it. With school starting, I need to get back to the books.

I hope you find this entertaining. Y appreciate your patience with my continual posting of the progress.

Thanks for all your support,

Conjures images.
I can see spectacular winter scenery when I listen to this, and a dance. So as a cinematic piece it really works! Thanks for a download that will be both educational and entertaining. Another one where I started the download before it finished playing.

Congratulations!
It is an epic work that you should be very proud of indeed. The strings are simply magnificent; your choice of voicings and voice leading are logical throughout and beautiful. It was worth every moment of your time, and it was worth every moment of ours as we listened to it unfold gracefully. I also commend you for being open to the suggestions you got from people as the work progressed; implementation of a few of them changed the character of the piece for the better. The harp near the 5:00 mark is enchanting. I must say that, to date, this is the finest piece of music I have encountered on this site - and given the general level of excellence here - that is quite a feat. It is a triumph; a masterful piece of writing and arranging.

I spent…
…numerous hours on voice leading in music theory class. The rules alone are maddening. I aced the courses, and try to apply the knowledge attained. Thanks for all of your input! I treasure the fact that so many musicians have a positive attitude toward my composing. Your playing, composing skills and knowledge of music is vast.

My original comments...
...somehow got trashed. Here's what I remember from them:
1. elegant, peaceful, gentle, and beautifully orchestrated opening
2. The transition to Part B makes very good musical sense and that lovely horn solo around 3:30 is just a tiny bit of magic at that very point...as is the play against flutes and trumpets a bit later.
3. Such well-thought-out musical ideas as the song progresses, telling its story with conviction and authority.
4. I liked the opening minute so much that I was hoping it would come back again at the end and give the number a sort of circular form.
5. So well performed and carefully recorded. It is a real pleasure to hear such fine music being written and recorded with such care.
Congratulations.

I believe…
…your original comments were left on the previous version. This is the final version, about two minutes longer. It includes the A, B, and C sections, to finale… but extremely modified.

Thanks again for your input. I appreciate your time in listening and commenting.

Did I say evocative last time?
Fire Angel got it right with the "snow" reference. I'll point to the dynamics which bring this piece alive. Also the instruments do not sound artificial at all, which is a testicle to the samples, the software and the person who massaged it all into shape. Grand job, Mr Alimar.

Evoking imagery with words and/or especially music is a difficult task. I feel special that you've gotten so much out of this. Thanks for your support.

Oh my
What a feat you've accomplished here, Al! Real pro stuff. No wonder it took all that time to finish - so much detail, so many instruments and ideas, such a great mix, so many things that needed to be checked... Can't imagine the patience you must have ;-)

Congratulations for pulling it off so successfully. Thanks for the dl, and good luck with your studies.

Take care,
Henke
