TIME TO GO

Candles
snuffed out,players
departing one by one-
the symphony becomes a
solo

Inspired by Haydn's Farewell Symphony(he wrote it as he felt the orchestra had been too 
long on the road!)

    Great write. When I first read I was thinking of a band where all the players are dying off leaving only one. I guess that could also work, but understand where you are going with this piece. Another wonderful write..love the fact that you get inspired by these classics.

    Oh, lovely tribute. Sad in a way how all things must come to an end. A beautiful ending however. Love, Shar
