A SHORT STORY IN BLUE

This piece was commissioned by Kunstfactor the Netherlands because of the Swinds Project (Swing for Winds).

The work is based on 'Musical Styles', especially based on swing and blues (like 'Chicago or Cabaret). The composition starts with a nice medium swing to be followed by a melancholic Blues. The last part has a cheerful 5/4 beat to conclude with a reprise of the intro.

Besides the regular windorchestra, a Piano, Bass Guitar and Drumset have been added. In the Score and Parts you can find some Side Skills: These Warming Ups are very helpfull for studying the composition.
