Subject: RE: BS: What are the absolutes of good writing?
Either that or I get bored easily, Donuel!**bg** Thanks.

He's still at it, writing an opera of the Southwest right now; ancient beings, metaphysics, etc. We have three fully-orchestrated piano concertos, three fully-orchestrated symphonies, piano suites, solo pieces, and several songs. ALL tonal, yet modern. We have a live performance of his tone poem, Ode to the Rockies, which was recorded on analogue was back when in the 80's and which I did have some CDs of; just haven't kept them up as I quit doing his stuff to work on my own. We also had a tape, made live, of an all-Hudson concert (that's him) at the Music Mansion in Providence, RI which we used to sell on tape and transferred to CD, but I'd have to scare one of them up, too, if anyone was interested. He played all of the piano pieces for that and had a professional opera singer do some stuff from his second symphony. I turned pages, wrote the copy, designed the programs, bought the clothes, etc., etc. and my husband borrowed a tv camera from the station he worked at to record it, so we have video, too. Some time I hope to get it transferred and up on youtube. There's a lot more I could say because I truly do love his music, but I cannot work with him, at least not much. He's a typical genius artist...brilliant and difficult.:-) Thanks for asking...I haven't done that in a long time and it does make me sad sometimes to know what is sitting in our closet.
