Sometimes the unexpected takes off
Chinese New Year Celebration
I was amazed and gratified to find unexpectedly large downloads (and a goodly number of thumbs-up) for My Chinese New Year celebration on YouTube (over 54,000 downloads to date since I uploaded it in 2008). 
Here is the YouTube address of the video:

It is in an oriental style insofar as it is in a major pentatonic scale and - of course - uses fireworks, as befits such celebrations. When I originally composed the piece, which is different in so many ways from the rest of my composing output, I regarded it as a piece for electronic playback only, but, in view of its relative popularity, I decided to offer a notated version fully orchestrated (although the fireworks are entirely ad lib and not specifically scored!). The score and parts will be up here on Load-CD shortly.
The full mp3 can be obtained from iTunes, CDBaby and Amazon.
