Those of you are who have been around the Concert Hall for awhile will recognize the name of Terry Streeton - aka "pointyflute".
Terry delighted many of us with his unique talent for composing highly colorful and mood-evoking pieces.
While Terry is not an organist, his MIDI files with almost unbelievably expressive, and initially fooled me into thinking they were "real," as opposed to MIDIs!
I communicated with him some while I ago, and said he was missed, and that we hoped he'd return. He said he was "doing other things," but that he might be back on the Concert Hall.
"Reflections on a Calm Summer's Day" was one of Terry's "last" uploads on the Concert Hall. Like all of his pieces, it shows his unusual and innovative approach, as well as his sensitivities to colors, tonalities, and sonorities.
Whenever I play one of Terry's pieces, I feel like I'm "improvising." While it's true that I don't follow his registrations, I change NONE of the notes. The music, which is really like an artist painting a picture in sound, just seems to happen, and I think that this is the case with "Reflections."
Every piece that I have played by Terry has proven to be an enjoyable and worthwhile bit of time spent, and I hope you will check out some of his other uploads, which always have intriguing titles to entice you into listening!
I was privileged to have Terry compose a piece for me, "Jubilation in E Major," and you can hear that here: http://www.contrebombarde.com/concerthall/music/19039
Other uploads I did and recommend are:
"Wanderings of a Balloon": http://www.contrebombarde.com/concerthall/music/19951
And the very mystically evocative, "Nullarbor"
The score is attached below, as well as a photo of Terry Streeton.
I hope people will comment on his music, as I will send the link to him, hoping to get him back here!
