Welcome to #NewTuneThursday!
How apropos is it that our first new tune to show up this Thursday is “Forgotten Melody“? 😆
“Forgotten Melody” is very memorable with a sweet movement that progresses throughout the piece. (source)
This unassuming, little 3-minute work for solo violin and piano was originally composed in 2006 for a graduate school assignment. I jotted it down in only a week and then forgot about it! But during my work putting together Paroketh’s Veil for CBTTF Records, I realized it was an opportune time to “dust off” the old file, clean it up (add an improvisatory intro), and give it a real life. 🙂
Spoiler: I have plans to re-record this work with two very dear and talented friends of mine this Fall. My long-term sneaky plot is to eventually release it as part of a very exciting, full album release, featuring the ultimate recording of the 2008 electric violin concerto, “Leviathan of the Ancient Deep”! (Pro Tip: Be sure to subscribe as a Backstage Member to be the FIRST to receive the epic Concerto recording!!)
This charming little duet can be played by anyone with intermediate ability. Get the sheet music here! And stay tuned for our featured work next week…
