ALTZAR’s Gypsy Music Suite
A film by Bob Altzar Djurdjevic released 7-15-14
This is a musical tapestry honoring the untamed Gypsy spirit. It was recorded in its entirety on July 10 on my Clavinova at the Rainbow Shower in Maui. Most of this musical fabric came to me from the Spirit realm in dreamtime or daytime, mostly in early 2010.
The Gypsy Suite consists of 14 variations (see below). Some are my original tunes. Others are excerpts from Gypsy themes by Liszt, Brahms or maybe even other composers I am not aware of.
Since I did not use ANY sheet music to create this musical tapestry, I am not necessarily able to identify each strand. Nor are they exactly as written by the original composers. I played them the way I heard them. And then I just stitched the pieces together. Like a quilt.
Here are now the 14 variations of this Gypsy Suite. I have also annotated here the Clavinova settings I used for each theme, in case some of you, my musically-gifted friends, want to give it a shot:
Second Clavinova Rendition
Soon after returning to our Yin home in Maui (on June 12 to be exact), I got an inspiration to create a new rendition of my Gypsy music. I have been tinkering with it on and off ever since during the last month or so.
On July 10, something told me it was showtime. So I recorded this Gypsy Suite of 14 variations on my Clavinova, using a myriad of orchestrals voices and rhythms.
