Improvisation

Despite having the most ridiculous schedule since, well, the last post, I have had a number of fairly successful improvisations.  This one is from a recent visit to Paris where I was given opportunity to improvise at Notre-Dame-d’Auteuil.  Duquesne University hosted a tour through Paris, visiting all the wonderful churches and instruments found there.  The theme is a 12 tone series written by one of the students, Jacob Temple.  What made this particularly fun was the fact that Ann Labounsky and I improvised back to back on the theme.  I’ve included both improvisations as it’s really interesting to see how we both treated the theme very differently.  (I want to add that I was playing in my street shoes – when in France, do as the French do!)
