Ron, I humbly think this is quite a feat and that you should definitely complete this work.

Reminds me of the sensibilities and pathos in some (superb) works of some Baltic composers (P Vasks and others) and of Shostakovich.

Recording is very good in general. Is it plain GPO4?

Thanks for the kind comments. Yes, it is plain old GPO4. I do have GPO5 but the strings are terrible. They only play back detache no matter what I do. Finale support's "solution" was to use GPO4.

With the English Horn quartet completed and now working on the performance, I'm starting to write again (depression is a beast!).

I'm very lucky and honored to be working with the bass oboist who is playing the fifth part with our quartet. I've decided that I want to make my next work a showpiece for the instrument, which has such an expressive, warm quality.

Today I had a meeting with the bass oboist, listening and learning quite a lot about it. The highlight of the session was being given the chance to actually play a bass oboe! What an amazing day!

Had not heard of a bass oboe. Sounds very interesting indeed. Look forward to hearing your music.  LA

This melody has been aging in the cellar for ever. There is a possibility I may attempt to use it as countermelody etc in the next couple of years :) Can I have inadvertently stolen it? Have you heard it before?

Reha,
 
It starts the same as the Pas d'Action in the second movement of Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty Suite, but then goes in a different direction.
 
The melody is at 6:11 in this YouTube clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tHEXbdZQjE
 
Cheers,
Jer

Thanks a lot, Jer! So, I was right to be suspicious. Funny thing is, I would think the themes in the Tchaikovsky suites were all familiar to me. It seems it was familiar, though, but lacked a name plate.

Thanks again!
