October 21 - Promises, Promises
Finish the orchestration of Moses and Aaron: IX. Storm/Tempest - "At Midnight" (not to be confused with...). OK, you get the picture, and this will be the last one of Tempest Storm. Promise. At least for awhile, since record the same after class today (dictation being the second four bars of the Kurt Weill / Bertolt Brecht Ballad of Mack the Knife from The Threepenny Opera -- also play Camino Real: Blocks 9-10).
Between teaching and recording, at Elephant Bar grading papers, followed by evening class, with music from Richard Strauss to Arnold Schoenberg (across the great 20th-century divide), then Left Bank with Aaron (not of Moses fame), Owen, and Doug -- returning home to begin orchestrating M&A: X. Caccia - "And the People Fled" before fleeing into dreams. Not of Tempest Storm. Promise.
