Maybe Late or Early

In May last year I sketched the outline of a melody as a piano piece, and promptly forgot about it.  However something has got me into music mode over the past couple of weeks, starting with rediscovering that wonderful Elgar symphony No 3, so brilliantly constructed from his sketches by Anthony Payne.  I am so glad Elgar’s dying wishes, to have the sketches burnt, were disregarded.  What a loss if that glorious piece hadn’t surfaced.

Here is the link, for anyone interested.

Anyway, as soon as I found my little snatch I wanted to complete it.  After having done so I traced a few pleasing pictures from that time frame, and the result is here …

Now I need to go back to my much-neglected trio with its only one movement to date.

    Oh wow, what a gift! I hope I can make such piece as well. For now, let me be just a fan. Great job! 🙂
