July 27 - Being Points
Up early yet again, more paper grading past Buckhorn Peak's fogs, then music from Paul Hindemith to Dmitri Shostakovich for the Historians, and an Igor Stravinsky Firebird Finale excerpt for the Pianists (plus Please Mr. Postman and a Debussy parody).
Extended lab time, finishing up the orchestration of
VIII. SCENA - "What Is It?" (Esther, Xerxes, and Haman)
and recording same,
then home past stone pines to begin orchestrating
IX. TERZETTO - "Now, then, Queen Esther" (The Death of Haman)
