Hi John,

I love the sound of Banjo and String Quartet. I have composed
a similar piece which I will poste in a few weeks. Great work!

Thanks Manuel... I like the sound too...I'd like to do more with that ensemble set up. I did some Vivaldi with strings but I like the combination of contemporary banjo compositions accompanied by the strings (although Early Spring is from 1992 - way back) --JB

John, I don't know if anyone has mentioned this before, but you and a couple of other players who have played other styles of music (classical in your case) are coming up with what might be termed "New American" banjo music. These seem to be non-bluegrass compositions that particularly lend themselves to execution on the banjo, sometimes with accompaniment, sometimes not.  Jens Kruger displays some of this on his demo of the Deering Calico.  Tim Wiedenkeller is another performer who comes to mind (although he borrows from Chopin).
Anyway, I want to encourage you to continue this style of composition. Even though it might be a fusion of different musical ideas, it comes off as distinctly American, which I think is fitting considering the time and energy that we put into developing this instrument from its original form, and the obsession we have with its tone and sounds.  Please don't hesitate to publish more.  Others will be influenced, no doubt.

Wow, I really enjoyed that! I love how the music "stops" and then starts afresh.
