A silly little musical joke, originally written for the 80th birthday of a family friend. He liked romantic piano music and was also very fond of the jazz standards, especially those of Cole Porter. It struck me that Porter’s Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye would be a good fit with Franz Liszt’s popular Liebestraum no.3 in A flat... so here it is.
Performances / broadcasts / ‘real’ recordings
None so far... anyone?
Listen to MIDI version (2:23)
This is the identical recording twice, the choice being offered in case of technical hiccups on either of the ‘mother ships’. Note: these two players will run simultaneously, so unless you fancy a double dose (out of sync) of my ‘spiritual output’, I recommend that you take care to avoid this happening!
This a computer-generated mockup of music for ‘real’ instruments. Clearly it is no substitute for a live performance, but it’s all I’ve got — or perhaps all I can make public for various reasons. There’s a fuller disclaimer on the Listen page.
