Just imagine sitting around and all of a sudden a flash of inspiration comes to you to do the thing that you do best. Lively Violins is an enjoyable piece featuring the Violin. I wouldn’t say there is any special message as such only that there is a need as a composer to write down music heard inside of one’s head every so often that demands attention and becomes necessary to write down.



Story behind the song

Every once in a while …supernatural inspiration and creativity! Sometimes music just comes to my mind. I’m not sure of the source within me or the source of the inspiration at large. Only that it needed to be written down. I enjoy the interplay of violins and especially active violins playing off of each other. Lively Violins was composed from the inspiration and taking the time to do a little scribbling on manuscript paper. Sometimes music just comes and when it does I do my best to write it out. This composition, Lively Violins, is just simply one of those pieces. I hope you enjoy it!
