Arrangement by concert pianist and composer Daniela Mastrandrea of my "Sweet Suite" - a four movement sequence originally written for string quintet.
The piano version is fairly difficult and requires large stretches at times, but for those who like a challenge it is well worth it.
The original stories behind the movements are:

1. Marie for shame (4' 30'') - based on a setting of the poem Maries vous estes paresseuse - Marie for shame to keep a-bed too long, you must get up and enjoy life.
2. Nocturne (2' 50'') is basically a segue to the first movement, in which Marie yawns and goes back to bed! The harmonies are rich and yet somnolent.
3. Camp David (4' 10'') is a sprightly number based on the Yiddish folksong Ikh bin a meidel in de joren - I am a maiden come of age and I am looking for a husband.
4. Blue Boar Blue (3' 30'') is based on a poem by a friend stuck studying in his college room (Blue Boar Quad at Christ Church Oxford) but dreaming of sunny outings to the river and punting.

This is the complete sequence - total length about 15 minutes. Separate movements are also available on musicaneo.
The sound sample is Camp David.

This is a sequence of 4 flute quintets. The movements are:
1 - Marie for shame, a sprightly number encouraging Marie to get out of bed and enjoy the day.
It is inspired by the poem "Marie vous estes paresseuse" by Ronsard.
2 - Nocturne represents Marie going back to sleep! Possibly my most indulgent piece.
3 - Camp David is klezmer in style and somewhat camp, it is based on a Yiddish folk song - ikh bin a meidel in de joren.
(I am a maiden come of age)
4 - Blue Boar Blue is based on a poem by a friend who lived in Blue Boar quad (Christ Church Oxford)
and lamented the fact he had to stay in and study while he was actually looking forward
to taking his girlfriend out punting on the river.


The sound sample is an electronic preview of the last movement.

The complete four movements of the string quintet (Sweet Suite) is available at
http://www.musicaneo.com/sheetmusic/sm-85049_string_quintet_2_violins_viola_2_cellos.html#85049

However, I thought it might be useful to provide scores and parts for the separate movements since they can actually be played as separate pieces
(obviously, in such a case, the "segue" at the end of the first movement and the page numbering in the scores can be ignored..).

The movements are:
1 - Marie for shame, a sprightly number encouraging Marie to get out of bed and enjoy the day. It is inspired by the poem "Marie vous estes paresseuse" by Ronsard.
2 - Nocturne is Marie going back to sleep! Possibly my most indulgent piece.
3 - Camp David is based on a Yiddish folk song - ikh bin a meidel in de joren.
4 - Blue Boar Blue is based on a poem by a friend who lived in Blue Boar quad (Christ CHurch Oxford) and laments the fact he has to stay in and study
while he is actually looking forward to taking his girlfriend out punting on the river


I have also made videos for each movement:

Arrangement by concert pianist and composer Daniela Mastrandrea of my "Sweet Suite" - a four movement sequence originally written for string quintet.
The piano version is fairly difficult and requires large stretches at times, but for those who like a challenge it is well worth it.
The original stories behind the movements are:

1. Marie for shame (4' 30'') - based on a setting of the poem Maries vous estes paresseuse - Marie for shame to keep a-bed too long, you must get up and enjoy life.
2. Nocturne (2' 50'') is basically a segue to the first movement, in which Marie yawns and goes back to bed! The harmonies are rich and yet somnolent.
3. Camp David (4' 10'') is a sprightly number based on the Yiddish folksong Ikh bin a meidel in de joren - I am a maiden come of age and I am looking for a husband.
4. Blue Boar Blue (3' 30'') is based on a poem by a friend stuck studying in his college room (Blue Boar Quad at Christ Church Oxford) but dreaming of sunny outings to the river and punting.


This is one of the movements. The full suite is also available in one file on musicaneo.

The complete four movements of the string quintet (Sweet Suite) is available at
http://www.musicaneo.com/sheetmusic/sm-85049_string_quintet_2_violins_viola_2_cellos.html#85049

However, I thought it might be useful to provide scores and parts for the separate movements since they can actually be played as separate pieces
(obviously, in such a case, the "segue" at the end of the first movement and the page numbering in the scores can be ignored..).

The movements are:
1 - Marie for shame, a sprightly number encouraging Marie to get out of bed and enjoy the day. It is inspired by the poem "Marie vous estes paresseuse" by Ronsard.
2 - Nocturne is Marie going back to sleep! Possibly my most indulgent piece.
3 - Camp David is based on a Yiddish folk song - ikh bin a meidel in de joren.
4 - Blue Boar Blue is based on a poem by a friend who lived in Blue Boar quad (Christ CHurch Oxford) and laments the fact he has to stay in and study
while he is actually looking forward to taking his girlfriend out punting on the river


I have also made videos for each movement:

This is the original song on which my other versions of Blue Boar Blue (string quintet, piano two hands and piano four hands)
are based.

The poem by Mark Haviland relates how he is stuck indoors (in his room in Blue Boar Quad at Oxford University) studying instead of enjoying the summer weather out on the river punting with his girlfriend, whom he awaits with impatience.

The sound sample is my original performance (although I recorded the guitar break at a different time and
on a different machine, hence the somewhat different acoustic properties in that section).

The zip file contains the full score, guitar part and separate part for the guitar break (Blue Boar Fantasia)
