Spain (May 2002)
been a journey. Some of the pieces on this CD
are so difficult for me that I call them my "three
diablos". They are: "El Camino,"
"Spain," and "SunRunner." I
built this CD over the course of a few months, inspired
by the story of a colleague who had decided to hike
the "Camino" pilgrimage trail in northern
Spain as a way of confronting and overcoming some difficult
personal demons. All the pieces have
to do with this theme of trial and perseverance.
it is "El Camino" that truly captures the
spirit of this CD, "El Camino" that daily
challenges me to get it right, "El Camino"
that after many many hours I've finally committed to
sheet music. I could go on and on about the struggles
that went into the making of this CD, including the
recognition that one aspect of my personal Camino is
that I will never, ever get this music fully right.
But the fun is in the journey. So take a
test spin; several clips are available. Or challenge
yourself to the sheet music (available soon!). Above all, tell me
what you think!
