Mr. Thinn (waltz for strings)

September 2011-Duration 4 minutes 30 seconds

Again written for Gary Woolf and the Banda di Musica, this short waltz is named after an imaginary, childhood character of mine – a magic toy-maker. Its 2 melodies span 36 years. The first tune came to me when I was 8 years old, the 2nd in September 2011. Once again writing for the wonderful Banda di musica has given me a unique chance to release an old and very special melody that has lain neglected and home-less for over 3 decades.The piece is light hearted, fun and in a simple ABA form.

There are 2 arrangements;
Standard ; Violins 1 and 2, Viola, Cello and Double Bass
School ; Violins 1, 2 and 3, Cellos 1 and 2
There are a few violin and cello solos throughout which are to be played by the section leaders. These are of moderate difficulty.

 

Recording by Banda Di Musica. Conducted by Gary Woolf.
