Have just finished recording what will be the first (and, premier) performance of the CVS Pharmacy "on hold" music, as this is the intricate piece that you will hear playing (if you are put on hold) when calling the Pharmacy.
As far as I know, no one else has ever played this particular piece (as it requires decent notation from a well done transcription), and I am now the first one to have recorded it, in its original arrangement with "strings and piano."
And, for anyone who might have previously dismissed this piece as just a boring bit of background music, you might want to listen again more closely this time, as it is not as easy to play as one might think.
The L.H. part is quite involved throughout, and it is certainly very classical in style, with soaring / lyrical melodic lines, as well. I have recorded the piece with a "Strings+Piano" setting, on the Casio AP-620.
However, any comments regarding the playing are always welcome:http://www.box.net/shared/tkmf67d48e
And, here is the original CVS performance, for comparison:http://www.box.net/shared/sy7p2bk48q
This performance is also a personal tribute to a great composer, who wrote a lot of original piano pieces with a unique style and character of their own, as this was James Romeo, who owned Romeo Music International. He passed away just a few years ago from complications of Lou Gehrig's disease, also known as ALS.
Born in 1955, died in 2002; however, the music will live on.
