Londonderry Air

composer
arranger

 
The transcription of the Londonderry Air was originally composed for James Galway and Robert White, so this is an arrangement of an arrangement, skimming all excess cream and allowing for a pure Irish melody to sail, in magically brittenesque style, across a syncopated accompaniment.

La transcription du Londonderry Air ayant été originellement composée pour James Galway et Robert White, la pièce proposée ici est un arrangement d’arrangement, qui écrème tout le superflu pour ne laisser voguer qu’une mélodie purement irlandaise, dans un style magiquement brittenesque sis sur un accompagnement syncopé.

Français: Hypérion

Die Transkription des Londonderry Air geht auf ein Arrangement für James Galway und Robert White zurück und ist somit die Bearbeitung einer Bearbeitung, die alle überschüssige Sahne abschöpft und es einer reinen irischen Melodie ermöglicht, in magischem, an Britten angelehntem Stil über eine synkopierte Begleitung zu segeln.
