I wrote and recorded this piece nearly 20 years ago. I did all of the instruments except the violins (local college students) and flute (Don Anderson).

This piece was inspired by the Adagio second movement of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G. 

I have always been a sucker for emotive and wistful slow pieces. I recently rediscovered this piece and share it here.
