Forgotten Dreams

Postby ChuckH » 03 Feb 2018 01:30

Forgotten Dreams composed in 1954 by Leroy Anderson, an American composer of short, light concert pieces, many of which were introduced by the Boston Pops Orchestra under the direction of Arthur Fiedler. Here I have played it in a theatre organ style. I came across an old photocopy of the first 2 pages (of 3 pages altogether I think) so I had to guess the ending and returned to the original passage.

Hi Charles. One of my favourites. A lovely morning listen before I get started. Enjoyed your interpretation and use of instruments. Particularly liked the powerful middle section. I never seem to get the ending bit right. Will have to practice more. John

Charles,

Whilst listening to this very moving piece I felt it needed more than just watching the bar move along the MP3 track on a computer screen. So I have been inspired to create a video of 'dreams' that may have been 'forgotten' and uploaded this to YouTube. If you go back to your original post you will see that I have replaced the Box LINK with the YouTube Video.

I returned home last night from a fortnight in Perth where I did not have access to the internet, so now I am back, thank you all for your comments.

Hugh, you did a wonderful job putting the video together and it really suited the theme of the song. Thanks for doing that.

Charles.
