Divertimento no. 1, 2016

Divertimento no. 1, 2016 (mp3) (pdf)

I know our friends and relatives out East received some serious snow this past week. The photo above is from our front porch almost exactly two years ago.

I've been spending some quality time with the music of James Oswald the past couple of weeks. This often inspires me to engage in some imitation of his friendly style.

The first part of this little piece is a slightly modified version of an old tune of mine, "Jefferson Lives." The second part is pretty much the same tune played as a jig, something that Oswald would often do. Part three is related but still has its own identity. Everything falls easily on the mandolin, of course it would also be comfy on the fiddle.
