'Celtic Fantasy "Lasher's Reel" -Josef Patchen
on: October 17, 2020, 02:02:04 PM
Live recording, iPhone video.  Not ideal according conditions.

Inspired by the character in Anne Rice's Mayfair Witch Chronicles.  Lasher is conjured up during a storm in a 16th-century Scottish highland village.  He is mischievous, capricious, capable of great destruction, and yet a very tender and satisfying lover.  Not my ideal performance, but I hope you'll find the piece of interest.  Originally for orchestra.
