Well "said", X
Thank you for the compliment, flipflopgirl. I spent a good amount of time trying to fight the right piece to fit that short time frame. Music has always been a big hobby of mine as well. I played clarinet during high school for a number of school bands, musicals, ensembles as concertmaster. I also played first chair in the Durham Youth Orchestra for 3 years, and was invited to play for the Durham Senior Honor Band also for 3 years. During those same high school years I managed to compose approximately 5 hours of original works, spread out over a number of pieces, including a clarinet trio, brass quintet, many unfinished concertos, many short piano jigs, and a full orchestra symphony that I had gotten to 20 minutes long. Unfortunately all of these were done using Finale on my computer. My motherboard crashed, and I am now left with maybe half an hour of my originals. But it was fun nevertheless, and the songs are still in my head at least.
Here is the piece I used for my slideshow. Tarantella S.162 by Franz Liszt.
I can understand where PC is coming from. Constructive criticism, if anything. :)
