MUSIC IS A MORAL LAW,
IT GIVES SOUL TO THE UNIVERSE
WINGS TO THE MIND.
FLIGHT TO THE IMAGINATION
A CHARM TO SADNESS
GAIETY AND LIFE TO EVERYTHING.
IT IS THE ESSENCE
OF ORDER AND LENDS TO ALL
THAT IS GOOD,JUST, AND BEAUTIFUL.
PLATO

Well, we met today. The Dutchman, or ' The Flying Dutchman' as I now call him....

We met with the Secretary of our Association. She is a Woman who has had alot of experience in the past as Administration for London Symphony Orchestra. The possibility of bringing the Youth Orchestra here from Holland for the project in 2013 was discussed. There are alot of ' If's' and ' But's of course, nevertheless we are all enthusiastic about the idea and our friend will return to Holland to investigate all aspects.

 Aside of that, I had a copy of the score Te Deum with me and had already conceived the idea of asking him if he would be interested in participating in a performance with Percussion ( his expertise ) ad lib!!That is to say without any written part for Percussion to follow, just straight from the Heart . 

 

After reflection, I am not sure that Te Deum is the right work for that but we also touched on the idea of creating a Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra. This would be a very good exercise for me as it would not be a strictly 'Classical / Romantic' work  and I would be able to explore all sorts of creative expression ,the fringe of which I have only touched.

I wonder if I really could 'step outside the box'  Can any of us? ....or are we so conditioned and addicted to external authorities  that we no longer ' dare'?!!! Well, I can only speak for myself but I'd love to have a go!!!

 It's early days yet, and a good thing too as I'm still recovering from the exhaustion of so much hard work in completing Te Deum and writing the two Concertos..... Take a breather Jil!! Have a lovely evening all xx
