Piano & Orchestra 3 is the third collection of compositions featuring either entirely orchestral instrumentation or acoustic/electric piano combined with an orchestral accompaniment.
Violins, Cellos, Flute, Oboe and Bassoon, Pianos of all types as well as Orchestral Percussion instruments can all be heard in these tracks, along with other real and also many imaginary and unique instruments created courtesy of my imagination with the valuable assistance of my trusty computer.
Some of the composition titles are self explanatory. However for you musical types - Minor Indiscretions uses mainly minor chords and Corner of 6th and 9th uses 6/9 chords. Ludmilla Tourischeva is dedicated to the Russian gymnast of that name; she was in my opinion an exceptional and outstanding gymnast, also the last of the truly graceful and elegant female gymnasts before they became tiny girls flitting around the arena at great speed. I hope I have conveyed Ludmilla’s grace and elegance along with a certain degree of Russian ambiance. New Lives For Old is the theme to a film idea of mine.
Created by Clive at his home in exotic Bali, the influence of South East Asia and the relaxing beauty of his home island are never far away in these musical compositions adding a further dimension to his western upbringing and 30 year recording and live performance musical journey.
Created and mixed using headphones, thus providing an ideal and very ‘personal’ experience for the listener, also using headphones.
