This is a lush recording with leaves brimming with color composed when they were slowly falling to the ground, preparing the time for inward reflection. While the Colors of the Season are red, orange and golden tones in one hemisphere, the Colors of the Season for others in the the other Hemisphere are pink, violet and yellow tones!
The day after I was in the studio recording this song, my amazing recording engineer and guitarist friend, Peter Sprague sent out his newsletter. This is what he says. Yes, these days, I feel like I am free of the click track!
“I’m thinking about this gal (Tina Tourin) that plays the harp and records in my studio. She’s living her life in rubato*. You know that scene of serenity where the harpist plays floaty, gentle music as life goes on around her? She’s free of the click track, arriving at the next bar whenever it feels right.
*rubato — the temporary disregarding of strict tempo to allow an expressive quickening or slackening, usually without altering the overall pace.”
Do have fun learning this piece and feel free to enter into Rubato. A very nice place to be! CRT
