My composition titled The Question asks a complicated question which cannot be answered. If you have the answer, please let me know.
An animated E minor introduction speaks to the happy birth of a little boy when the occasion is announced via a phone call at 2 a.m.! He emphatically says, “I am here!” He is now 8 years of age, and cherishes the stories, photographs and a few voice recordings that help imagine his past with his father. He had attained one year of age when that temporal love and influence departed. His life, love, and nurturing are now a garden of flowers tended by his family.
My cadenza floridly speaks its own language in chordal transitions combined with scale passages, in an escape to unknown vestiges of the soul. Improvisatory in nature, this section transitions through E minor, E Major and A minor and other harmonies in an exploitation of the entire range of the classical-style guitar from a low open sixth string E to the highest note, a first string B on the nineteenth fret.
