Adagio Cantabile with a rock tempo feel …

So reads the first of many performance directions for John Stump‘s Faeries Aire and Death Waltz.

If you’ve never seen this piece of music, claimed to have been ‘arranged by accident’, then you should take a minute out to study it.  Claimed to be unplayable, but even so there is a version on YouTube.  If nothing else, the build up is entertaining in its own right.

Look out for the other musical directions ‘release the penguins’, ‘cool timpani with small fan’, ‘add bicycle’, ‘remove valve’ and as it reaches its conclusion, ‘gradually slide from 12-bar blues to a more vivaldi like cadenza’.

Quite impressive.  Full score (courtesy of wikipedia) attached.
