"CLASSICAL" WORKS (with Liner Notes) BY RICK A DUNCAN
All works performed on a Roland XV-88 except #6 which also features Mari on a real flute. All works written on an old Encore 3.0 music program sent to me some dozen years or so ago by one John Clancy. This "no-frills" program fits easily on my work computer and enables me to claim that I get paid to compose. So thanks again, John. - RAD     September, 2006

Guitar Concerto in 3 Movements


Written at work over 3 months, just to see if I could. The themes are original, but the style is "borrowed". (22MB, 23:17)

Xmas Mudley


Written for Mari`s woodwind quintet for a Christmas concert. Got one performance which is the only part of the concert which did NOT get recorded. It`s full of little musical jokes, such as playing "Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer" against "Little Brown Jug How I love Thee", explaining the cause of the red nose. (5MB, 4:32)
