Flight of the Condor

One of my earliest attempts to write a piano / strings ballad that I first played over ten years ago and recently resurrected. It started out as a simple set of chord progressions in C that repeated. These constitute the first 34 bars but then, as now seems customary for me, the thing just went of on a tangent all of its own for both piano (right hand) and strings.

Thus, much of the content is almost entirely spontaneous rather than pre-planned.

I am delighted with the outcome given my numerous limitations in this area. One can only imagine what a competent orchestra could do with it.
