Telling Tales had its origins decades ago, when I was working on a series of children's projects. The individual pieces have coalesced into a suite for flute and harpsichord. Though the details are only fragments of memory at this point, I do recall that the melodies were drawn from several sources including a record project, commercials, and if I am not mistaken, a song for a lovely young, yet mysterious woman. These days I often revisit early works, reworking the material to see how they might sound if they were written more recently. So Telling Tales for violin and harpsichord is the 2013ish take on music from the 1970s. (Stuart Diamond)
