Golden Anniversary

Publisher: Manuscript

Dedicated to my parents in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary. The musical elements are drawn from the date they were married, September 30, 1966. The piece is a jazz waltz with 9 small beats per measure for the month (September) and is 30 bars long for the day (30). The main melodic motive contains two consecutive intervals of a 6th for the year 1966.
