A tune by my late uncle Willard
This is from his Dallas, Tx days I think.

I was just listening to a composition by my late uncle, Willard Elliot. He always cheaped out on my birthdays and christmas by giving me one of his albums, instead of toys, but I did listen to them a lot and now I really wish I had kept them all. He was not a fiddler (a bassoonist), but he did write for strings (as you will hear). Anyway, since you're all music lovers here, I thought you might like to hear one of his compositions. It's pretty long and if you don't sit through the whole thing -- well I usually don't either. Oh, and I think this was from back when he was with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

Deep stuff > I am always amazed how other write such deep musical pieces. I enjoyed that.

Thank you... listening with my morning coffee at work.  It is a deeply enchanting piece.  I really love it.. suspenseful, and captivating with melancholy.  Sounds of life.
