If Wendy and Randy are brave enough to post unfinished pieces then I can too.



I realize the credits were showing before I got to the theatre,
but I want to add my applause here, Dirge.
I listened to this piece three times through
with great pleasure and no little astonishment.
I had no idea that this sort of music could be performed on a concertina,
and your playing seems quite wonderful to me.

I have no aspirations to such accomplishments
(I'm pleased just to be playing "Summertime" a'la Alan Day's tutorial)
but I enjoy and admire yours enormously.

Thank you very much for sharing it with us.

Shas

Thanks Shas that's really nice of you. I'm glad you liked it.

Editted to add: You certainly are working your way through all the Cnet back issues, aren't you!

Now being aware of this thread, I must confess my admiration too. Never imagined a complex piece like this (one of my all-time-favourites) sounding that great on concertina...

B.t.w., you're only wrong with the "Crotales", which are apparently bell-like percussion instruments. Or did I miss a joke?

That was a joke, and if I remember rightly so weedy that no one even commented on it. And thank you.

So thank you - again, aside from your inspiring playing - for letting me learn both about those strange instrumnents and the abilities of my fellow forum members to tell a weedy joke from unexpected news!

I'll improve on that myself, I promise... :)

Lovely restless mood. An interesting, tasteful, quality use of a concertina.

Cheers, Bruce Thomson in Palmerston North NZ

I have just discovered that Dirge and other people have put tunes playing the duet, it is wonderful! I was a time ago thinking about put something playing by my self, not for the quality, but for discussing about technical approachs for playing, but I finally didn't because I made so many mistakes that I needed to put more time for playing for recording it properly (when alone it works well but for recording the performance was much worse) and I didn't have time then.
