July 19 - Balancing Act
Finish the orchestration of Esther Xerxes: III. "When King Nebuchadnezzar" and head down to Pleasant Hill to El Morocco to grade papers, an interrupted intermezzo when belly dancers appear -- not expected, but not unwelcome. After a little participation theatre, break stride at
Dinosaur Hill in time for the
last rays on Mt. Diablo,
then retrace steps to the lab to complete the quiz evaluations (through Late Medieval Music, which, appropriately, includes some Middle Eastern selections) and record above, i.e.
Esther Xerxes, Op. 78: III. SINFONIA E SCENA - "When King Nebuchadnezzar"
returning home to begin instrumentizing
EX: IV. DUETTO - "Bigthana and Teresh" (The Plot Against Xerxes).
