Ausra and I are on vacation in Palanga on the Baltic Sea coast this week so I had the pleasure recording this brand new piece on the beach on our super portable 32 note MIDI keyboard. Thanks to Ausra for filming me! Since I had to play it 3 times (right hand, left hand and pedal part), it was rather difficult to synch it afterwards with the recording I did on Hauptwerk Velesovo sample set which I also recorded part by part 3 times. But I think the end result was worth the effort!
This meditation is based on a beloved Scottish folk song "The Water Is Wide" (O Waly, Waly) and features a romantic solo melody of the tune appearing in the soprano and tenor voices. The accompaniment figure is kept simple so that it would be accessible yet very effective. This composition will work for weddings and any other contemplative occasions very well. Dedicated to Ausra. Fraser Gartshore played a wonderful World Premiere during his concerto last night. Go check it out: youtu.be/P-oZYfc4O7Y?t=1031
