Music 417: Telling Secrets

Here is a piece of music for String Orchestra.

Telling Secrets (for String Orchestra) – audio HERE, sheet music HERE.

(Incidentally, the numbering of the music postings has got a bit out of sync so today’s number, although out of kilter, should put the counting back to right!)

      Thanks Lisa. I was thinking of the little “tinkly” bits (after the “Chinese” bit) – and it also ends the piece – as being like a little secret whispered into grandma’s ear!” (0.17″-0.27″ etc)

    Hi Bruce. I’m new to your blog, courtesy of Dumbest Blogger 🙂

    I read your about page; and I also noted that your name is listed on this sheet music. Am I to assume that is you playing the music as well?

      Hi Jim – thanks so much for your comment. The strings are played synthetically – just me and the mouse and headphones in the middle of the night! I used to put all the markings into the music such as string bowing but having gone for 70+- years and no one taking any notice I thought they can jolly well add such things themselves! The pieces for other orchestra instruments are also digital – I use nothing more than comes on everyones copy of Windows10. The piano pieces are a bit different – I can play them but I’m sure my family wouldn’t appreciate my recording things on the piano in the early hours. Thanks again for your comment.

        Great reply, Bruce. I think everyone likes the “inside scoop” on creativity or just our daily lives, the journal we keep inside our heads. I’ve been meaning to add more personal notes to my blog and pull back from the political angle. I’ve been told politics is boring. I like it, however, and I’ll just modulate the amount rather than discount entirely.

          It’s so easy to fall in the trap of trying to please people. Now and again I have to have a break from the blog just to tell myself that I’m allowed to do what I like!

            You are right to follow your heart in your blog at least a good portion of the time. But I think it is also wise to listen to the audience. Think of them as the paying crowd, paying with their attention. It todays hectic world that is the best coin of all. Thus we want a balance between audience and self in what we decide to write next (or perform musically or what-have-you).
