Colored Music

I've just spent the last few hours reacquainting myself with some obscure, compact, rhythmically and finger-twistingly complex pieces of Hindemith. But I'll save those for another day....

We've all see movies where musicians go into a studio and spend hours and hours playing the same song over and over until they finally get it right, or at least good enough. (If you haven't, then go rent Once right now!) Coffee is consumed. Nerves get frayed. Yelling ensues.

Well, that is just what I went through to record these little pieces. But no amount of effort is too much for you, dear readers! It is precisely because they are short and fairly easy that I become such a task master. For the long, difficult pieces you will just have to take what you can get!

So here, without further ado, are two pieces by Robert Starer from "Sketches in Color". One of them actually sounds interesting, though I won't say which one.


These are the only two pieces from that collection I have, though I'm just dying to know what some of the other colors sound like.
