Birthday Piece No. 5
I'm a little ahead of schedule on my yearly birthday pieces for viola d'amore and piano, but this one serves two purposes: to mark my upcoming birthday at the end of the month, and to celebrate Bernard Zaslav's 87th birthday today. Notice that the meter is 5/4 and the piece has 54 measures (I'll be 54 on April 30), and the tempo is 87 to the quarter.
I finished writing the piece in time for Bernie's birthday, but it will take ma a while to learn to play it, so a computer-generated version will have to do for the time being.
Here's a link to the music.
