It's about time to write a few words here.
5.30 AM: "Delavarnu" is sent to performers- Akropolis Reed Quintet.
Afternoon, next day: rehearsal on the piece.
I can't describe how exciting this is! The best feeling there is! It's one of the things I like the most about composing- believing in what you wrote, achieving your goals and your esthetic. All the difficulties I encounter when writing music are than forgotten and there is no bigger joy or sense of accomplishment for me. Also, this time it is being acknowledged right away by performers, which usually isn't the case. Art is all about collaboration. In music the collaboration goes three ways- the composer, the performer and the listener. I send a big "THANK YOU" to Akropolis for being as enthusiastic about this as me and look forward to the next opportunity they have to perform this piece!
I am super ad·re·nal·ized now! I should utilize this high energy to be my motivation for a new piece. Momentum is definitely there.
