#101: Elegy

Audio link: 3 August 2006

When I was at the Dalcroze International Conference, I was priviliged to be a part of several improvisation master classes with the Dalcroze teachers from Geneva. In one in particular, we were encouraged to improvise freely; many of the others revolved around improvising for movement or pedagogical purposes. One of the things I did was to improvise a “cello piece”, that is, something with the melody in the left hand. It was a great experience and it’s made me interested in left hand melodies, which really have their own, much less explored qualities. This “cello piece” is improvised fresh today, of course.
