Naiads (Water Nymphs) - a spontaneous improvisation for replica ancient Greek chelys lyre in the dreamy, soft and feminine sounding ancient Greek Hypolydian Mode (equivalent intervals as F-F on the white notes of the piano and misnamed the 'Lydian' mode in the Middle Ages), in the wonderfully pure just intonation of antiquity. In this improvisation, I wish to conjure through music, an evocation of the beautiful painting, “Hylas and the Nymphs” by John William Waterhouse.
