Kenyon, Stephen - Arietta (Becalmed) - Video

Post by Stephen Kenyon » Thu Feb 07, 2019 7:22 pm

Some 25 or more years ago I wrote a suite of 8 pieces wittily titled "Pieces of Eight". It was a mixture of baroque pastiche and quite abstract, descriptive pieces ("Walking the Plank, for instance!). Perhaps as a result of this mixture it never really caught on, but I have kept a fondness for this item, nominally an Arietta, the nautical sub-text being that of getting stuck with no wind - Becalmed.
Another one from the Ramirez series.
