Works update: Pictured Within and more

December 20, 2012

pictured beyondTwo of Jon’s more iconic songs from the Pictured Within album have been newly edited and reconstructed in full scores and piano/vocal scores by conductor Paul Mann.

– When we were preparing the score for Wait a While for the 1999 Royal Albert Hall concerts, we had a discussion about the instrumentation. Jon’s revised version deploys the full forces for only a single moment (at the final appearance of the words “you should know by now, I love you”), and this restraint makes the song all the more deeply affecting, explains Paul Mann.

Read his and Jon’s full notes for each piece in our Shorter pieces section.

Also added to the list is one more from Beyond The Notes:

I’ll Send You A Post Card (Pavane for Tony)
