henningmusick: Accelerando al fine

henningmusick: Accelerando al fine

Three years ago, I was making progress with new Sibelius files of all the numbers already composed for White Nights.  This was all a refamiliarization process, whose goal eventually was the composition of Scene 8 (and then, the remainder of the ballet).

Here this year, Scene 8 is tonight in the first phase of Being Done;  that is, I have found my way to the final double-bar. I am still stress-testing all the joins, and confirming the pacing.  And I need to go through the horn and trombone lines and add some material. So it will very possibly be completely done tomorrow. Which of itself, is a huge step for this composer, and for the ballet.
