    Try reading and playing this in dim light, with no rehearsal.

    Pretty straight forward if you have a bit of experience with Cro-Magnon chants. They're all kinda the same.

    It might be hard to read if there were a lot of penciled-in changes.

    I have played a bit of Ferneyhough (or played at?) so this is not so intimidating (this is a solo piece, not a trio)

    That's exactly what I thought - how hard could it be ? I mean this had to be even before ' Happy Birthday '......: ).....

    It is John Stump’s “Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz”.

    Here is a recording, created on synthesisers:




    The composer is here remembered by his nephew.

    Sounds like a Metallica tune

    Yes - life has become one long tremulous tacit - we’re all nervously waiting to figure out when we’re supposed to start again.

    At first, these examples look daunting . . . and they certainly are but there are some scores that can never be exactly written by a composer but only approximated in musical notation since they are impressionistic sounds in the composer's head. So, we as good musicians, will try to get the "feel" of the piece but many times it is difficult if you've never heard it performed. In fact, listen to any of Bach's music, to a lesser degree, that are devoid of written dynamics and how differently the pieces sound among various performers. Imagine how differently this piece would sound! However, for me, this is pure mental masturbation. Play live . . . Marinero

    Yes, I read both bass and treble clef. The attached chart doesn’t hold a candle to reading a Keith Jarrett solo.
