Enjoy some musical moments from my friend and mentor, Walter Mays.
We begin with his Rhapsody for Bassoon:
Here is a version for Bassoon and piano
Here is the same passage with Bassoon and chamber orchestra
Haunting and mysterious!
Next, the award winning Dreamcatcher, for wind ensemble.
A passage from the end, almost Debussy-ian.
Impressionistic and dreamy.
Finally, two passages from the horn and piano piece, Dialogues.
First an excellent passage of quarter tones.
Finally, a finale that is stunning.
Dramatic and cinematic.
