Hi fellow Gizars,
Since many of you expressed enjoyment of my Clarinet Concerto, posted earlier in the year, in the spirit of the season [and, of course, further shameless self-promotion ],here is a link to my composition A Gothic Overture. Hope you will enjoy the spookiness! If you play it on large speakers outside your house for the trick-or-treaters Halloween eve, it should creep them out!
This overture approximately follows the dramatic arc of the 1939 film Wuthering Heights quite well but is suitable for most gothic horror movies (with a little over-the-top humor as well) . [ BTW, 1939 was arguably the greatest year of film-making of all time, with this film, along with : Dark Victory, *Goodbye, Mr. Chips, Gone With the Wind , Love Affair ,Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Ninotchka , Of Mice and Men, Stagecoach, The Wizard of Oz , & The Hunchback of Notre-Dame - Wikipedia]

Extra credit question for all boomers: Do you recognize the first measures of the main theme (after the slow intro)? (Hint: it was from a commercial jingle in the 60’s.) I used it because it was an earworm for me and also serendipitously appropriate to represent Heathcliff from the film.
