September 23 - Orchestrating Another Day

Surprise, surprise. Another day, another orchestration; this time including finishing up The Passion According to St. Matthew: I. Then One of the Twelve before heading off to give a dictation of J.S. Bach's Passacaglia in C Minor, which is also used for harmonization, followed by fine compositions by Desiree, Francisco, and Hiraoki.

Lunch at Elephant Bar (N.B. not pictured directly above -- was not any sort of "Last Lunch" -- at least, hope not... although sometimes seem to get crucified on a semi-regular basis...) and a return for the evening class, from Giulio Caccini to J.S. Bach; then home again orchestrating beginning of II. Where Will You Go (to Have Us Prepare the Passover), a funk-minimalist Andrew-Lloyd Webbernlyesque take on Antonio Vivaldi's Four Seasons: Spring I (whereas the previous is more Igor Stravinsky Requiem Canticles: Tuba Mirum inspired, with a little bit of "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window" thrown in for good measure).
