Album Notes
Part 2 of my symphonic works created on the computer, contemporary-classical music unashamed of being melodic, innovative without the usual pretentious avant-garde crap, and without making you run for cover or die of boredom. Mamička (mommy in Czech) is a tribute to my mother who made up a little lullaby to soothe me to sleep while hiding from the Germans at the end of WWII. This was her only "composition". Years later when she was dying in a nursing home I hummed it to her, a kind of payback, and she smiled in recognition. The symphonic poem uses a simple version of the tune at the beginning and a more elaborate one at the end.
Symphony No.1 "The Berkshires" is a different kind of tribute, to the beautiful place in western Massachusetts I have called home for the past twenty years. Featured are four natural landmarks, each representing a season, from the sophisticated lawns of Tanglewood (summer home of the Boston Symphony) to the jagged rocks of Ice Glen that has ice even in July. From the idyllic Woods Pond in the spring to the hunters of October Mountain who disturb the fall quiet with their gunshots.
Finally, a little one-movement concerto for highland bagpipe and orchestra, here performed by a live piper - Nancy Tunnicliffe, with my virtual orchestra.
