Walk in Beauty

ESO Principal Trombone John McPherson stopped by the ESO admin office to talk about his composition Walk in Beauty and play a short excerpt. The accompaniment is provided by my computer, using the notation software Finale, so that portion is a bit... mechanical, but it gives you the idea, anyways.

The piece was commissioned by the ESO and premiered in 2000, and will be performed again this Sunday, October 18. Watch the video (complete with background typing - see, we're really working!) below:
