Mozart – the “Graveyard Key” in his Opera Don Giovanni


Mozart- the “Graveyard Key” in his Opera Don Giovanni. Mozart’s graveyard key is the key of four sharps. Why? As per Alfred Einstein (not Albert) in his book, Mozart, His Character, His Work,, the key of 4 sharps surpasses the number of sharps or flats used in all the other major numbers in the opera. It is “beyond the pale” so to say.Einstein discusses how the of key signatures are pivoted by D major of 2 sharps; and D minor of one flat… with their related keys. A related key signature differs only by one sharp or flat from the primary key or keys.

Beethoven also uses the key of four sharps for a great contrast, though not of a graveyard import. In his Waldstein piano sonata No.21 opus Opus 53 in C major (key no sharps or flats),the opening theme has a vibrant and youthful rhythmic pulse which is contrasted by a second or “sub theme” that is beautiful in a lyrical way to the max.


The featured picture here is not the grave scene from Mozart’s Don Giovanni; rather it is the Ghost scene from our opera, The Cup of Cleopatra, posted as a product on this website.The two ghosts are played and sung by David Powers,on the left, as Julius Caesar’s ghost; and Joseph Fast as the Ghost of Marc Antony. They are singing about how to keep Cleopatra alive. You can view excerpts of the our performance at the Palladium Theater on our products page at the top of our website-DSOworks.com. Oh yes, all operas, including ours, need backing and financial assistance; otherwise, culture can come to a clashing stop, and then where are we?


I’m will be blogging more about key signatures because of my upcoming original book to be posted as a product on this website (DSOworks.com) entitled Music Under the Zodiac. As a long time composer, who has encountered so much resistance and negativity to my writing of music, I welcome the age of websites and computers as a way of taking ones work directly to the public. -David


Planets and Hidden Number Codes

Planets and Hidden Number Codes: Here’s something new for the New Year. Happy New Year! I will try to keep it happy with all my blogging. When I worked in the worked mountains as the house piano player at Scotts Oquaga Lake House for some 20 summer seasons, I had the honor of working with a great entertainer: Steve de Passe, America’s singing poet. . He’d start every show with the same words: “Good news. I want good news only!” Then he would amaze his audience by making song and rhyme with a touch of comedy on the spot with every bit of good news that the audience gave him. This wonderful man would take our oldest son fishing, catch the fish, and then proceed to cook it for us for dinner with the skills of a master chef. How rare is that! My upcoming book of poetry called the Oquaga Spirit Speaks, will be available shortly as a product on this website (DSOworks.com).


Now how are the planets set up by the smallest of number codes? By one of the hidden codes on the number square and their timing in completing cycles around the Sun. I’ve already blogged about some hidden codes. Any opposite numbers going in an opposite direction taken two at the time equal 110 (as 49 + 61; 94 + 16; 15 + 95; 59 + 51 etc). In such a manner, 110 can be found in 16 different ways. 16 x 110 = 1760. Each of the planets listed below complete a whole number of orbits using the code by double numbers in either close approximations of 11 years or 176 years:

(1) Mercury…….46 orbits in 11.079 years
(2) Venus…….. 18 orbits in 11.074 years
(3) Earth…….. 11 orbits in 11 years
(4) Moon……….137 orbits in 11.077 years
(5) Mars……….11 orbits in 11.286 years
(6) Jupiter…….15 orbits in 177.933 years
(7) Saturn………6 orbits in 176.746 years
(8) Uranus……….2 orbits in 177.4 years

Conclusion: The square of three, known in ancient China as the Lo shu, holds numerical structural codes of numbers that our Universe is both timed and built by. At one time this was known by civilizations around the globe in a harmonious former age of peace and plenty..This wisdom was spoken to me by a female spirit of the Lennie Lenape tribe who made her haunt around Oquaga Lake where we had been frequenting for many years. Her words with pictures will be featured in my upcoming book,The Oquaga Spirit Speaks, to be available shortly on this website as a product.

Prop Up the Periodic Chart

Prop Up the Periodic Chart:

“I saw in a dream a table where all elements fell into place as required. Awakening, I immediately wrote it down on a piece of paper, only in one place did a correction later seem necessary., as quoted by Inostrantzev[22][23] .    

The 9×9 number square which defines the “ash” of nuclear fission

Good Heavens! That was well over 100 years ago. Things change. New insights are added. Here’s one with reference to the magic number squares of 5 x 5 and 9 x 9. First, the 5 x 5:
  • The Sun fuses lighter elements to make heavier elements. Hydrogen is fused in the first wave to make Helium. Then comes Ccarbon. Elements are fused up to iron, atomic number 26; .  Iron is called the ash of nuclear fusion. That’s as far as the heat fusion goes on a star.  When enough iron accumulates, pressures that result become so greater that the star explodes which is able to fuse the heavier elements. Since the ash of nuclear fusion is iron-26, the 5 x 5 square is its representative. Any two opposite numbers on this square total 26 as 17 + 9; 5 + 21; 12 + 14 etc.
  • Lead is called the ash of nuclear fission. Elements heavier than lead (Pb) 82 emit particles until Pb82 is reached. If you look at the 9 x 9 number square any two opposite numbers total 82. Thus, by proton number the perimeter of fusion is defined by the 5 x 5 number square; while the perimeter of fission is defined by the 9 x 9 number square.
  • If 26 is taken as the diameter of a circle; 82 is a close approximately of its circumference as 82/26 =3.1538… Not bad for working with whole numbers.
  • Finally, thinking like the “primitive” ancients, in Hebrew gematria (equation of letters and numbers with no separate number system) Yahweh equals 26 with the Hebrew letters for yud, hei, vav, hei . Therefore, if God(26) is the span or diameter of the elements; the circle of stable elements is defined by the 82 circumference number derived from the number of non- radioactive lead.


Do you think the above number squares can prop up the periodic chart? If not, there will be more blogging on this subject. Oh yes. If you are into culture, I’ve been posting our musical shows on the products page with spectacular entertainment that include  Russian folk dancing by a major, world class  ballet company; and Rubinoff playing his  1731 Stradivarius violin in concert in New York with me, He was 86 years of age at the time and the full 41 minute concert is on a thumbnail. We are looking for sponsors,  agents and venues for our shows. Over decades of hard work, we have come up quite short on our resources.   Enjoy our thumbnails and product page on DSOworks.com, and our best for a happy New Year.

Black Elk of the Sioux

Black Elk of the Sioux. Black Elk was a medicine man for the Oglala Sioux Indians. He verbally related his story to John Neihardt who published a book in 1932 with Black Elk’s words called :Black Elk Speaks. If you think that the Book of Revelations of John in the New Testament can be confusing, Black Elk Speaks  is definitely on a par. It definitely has many similarities. His vision has both the wisdom and analogies used by the Bible which further leads me to believe the possibility that the American Indians branched out from a lost tribe of Israel.

“Younger brother,” he said, “with the powers of the four quarters you shall walk”… (quote from an ancient grandfather speaking to Black Elk  in Chapter 3 of Black Elk Speaks) Of course, two intersecting rivers have always been the location of concepts of Paradise. What do the 4 quarters refer to? The answer: even numbered, number squares, in particular the 4 x 4 number square of which I have written numerous blogs. Please review these on DSOworks.com

The  “horses took their places in their quarters, looking inward, four by four” (also chapter 3 of Black Elk Speaks). These 4 central numbers of this first and therefore prime even-numbered number square are 10,11,6, and 7.  They represent the four corners of the Earth. Here is the key:


  • In the majority of middle eastern civilization and elsewhere, the 4 x 4 number square represented the symbolic potential of the planet Jupiter for success is action, business, and creating opportunities. Each of the 7 planets were  assigned its own number square.
  • All potential lies in the central four numbers of  even numbered squares for a totality of creation explained as follows:  Here is the formula: The upper left central number (10) I call UL. The upper right number I call UR. The lower left I call LL and the lower right I call LR. The sum of all the numbers in any even numbered number square can be represented by “S”. The formula becomes (UL  X  LR) + (LL + UR) = S. The prototype example above  becomes  (10  x 7) + (6 x 11) = 136 (sum of the numbers from 1 to 16)
  • This number square was called upon on by God in Genesis on each day of creation. I’ve already blogged about this; but to summarize – on each day God called his work, “Good,” In Hebrew “good” has a numerical equivalent of 17, On the above number square, any opposite numbers total 17 as-  16 + 1;  10 + 7; 4 + 13 etc.
  • Here is the clincher: As all life as we know it develops by  a mathematical ratio called “phi”, 1.618… to 1; this square holds are series of numbers called the Fibonacci that develops in that ratio. The first Fibonacci numbers are: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55…Now look at the above square: 16 + 5 = 21; 3 + 10 = 13; 2 + 11 + 13; 13 + 8 = 31 etc. Their totals are always the Fibonacci  numbers of life.

Conclusion: A find a strong parallel between the vision of Black Elk, medicine man for the Oglala Sioux, and Genesis of the Bible or Revelations of the New Testament. I can only conclude that if we but know it,  all mankind is one with our Creator and that we should all  reclaim our natural birthright in  this wonderful upcoming age to be filled with  peace and plenty. Finally, please keep watching for my book of poetry dictated to me by an old  Indian spirit, female of the matriarchal, Lennie Lenape tribe. It is called The Oquaga Spirit Speaks- 89 pages of poetry and pictures dictated to me by this spirit around Oquaga Lake. It will be listed for  on the products page of DSOworks,com very reasonably.

Why Number Five is the Key to Creation

Why Number Five is the Key to Creation. My primary source was (1) the Oquaga Spirit, that dwells on spring fed Oquaga Lake  in upstate New York on a mountain top. (2)  Rabbi Michael L. Munk’s book, The Wisdom of the Hebrew Alphabet. To the best of my knowledge. God’s name Yah, as spelled  in Hebrew with a yud and a hei: : יָהּ  – has a numerial equivalent of 15. Any straight row of three numbers on the 3 x 3 number square also equals 15. The parallel with the 3 x 3 number square goes further. The first Hebrew letter of Yah is a yud which is also the symbol for number 10. In many ancient languages letters actually doubled as numbers. There were no separate number systems from the  letters like we have in English. On the 3 x 3 number square any two opposite two numbers always total 10. The core number on the square is 5, which is the numerical equivalent of the second letter, hei. 

Rabbi Munk describe  how “according to the Sages” this world was created by the letter hei (5) and the world to come with the letter yud (10).  The Rabbi  directly quotes Isaiah 26:4 בְּיָהּ יְהֹוָה צוּר עוֹלָמִים:  which translates “In the name of “Yah” God formed the worlds”.  By interlocking the 5 (this world) with the world to come (10) we are shown how the spirit from the world to come is intertwined with  the physical world by the 3 x 3 square that the Chinese civilization refers to as “Lo shu.”. By tradition it is is connected to the planet, Saturn, the giver of law.


So where is the grand unity? In my search, I was shown how the vibrations per second of the musical tones of antquity (whose vibrations per second are corroborated by Issac Asimov in his book, On Physics) built their holy sites on giving measure by the vibrations per second to these holy sites.Isaiah  knew this. By placing this key passage in 26:4; he aligned the Scripture with the diatonic tone “C” which vibrated 264 times per second. Other expresses of the use of the diatonic tone “C”

  • include Stonehenge: The distance from the center of its concentric circles to the heel stone is 264 feet
  • The Great Enclosure in Zimbabwe conceived as a circle with  circumference of 831 feet with a diameter of 264 feet.
  • The Hebrew word for the Passover prayer book is “seder”. It means “order”.  Without the letter “hei” which translates “the”, seder equals 264 by number equivalent. The order of Seder is a statement of the cosmic order found  not only in music, but in the measurement of holy sites around the world. To quote the theme of these blogs: Where there is unity and oneness, there is peace. As is said in Hebrew, and similarly in Arabic:
  • One length and one width of the Ka’aba (33 x 39 feet) translates to 26.4 megalithic yards of 2.72 feet (the fraction for converting is 30/11 = 2.727272…) The 3 letter root of both “Arab” and Hebrew in Hebrew letters equals 272. The both share the ayin (70) veis,(2)  and reisch(200)  letters; only re-arranged.
    Shalom aleichemשָׁלוֹם עֲלֵיכֶםPeace be upon you


    Ha-Seder Shel Pesach (The Pesach Seder, in Hebrew)
    “The order of Passover” spelled in Hebrew letters represents a grand cosmic order of measure, music and religion.

A poetry book of 89 pages of her wisdom with pictures will be available soon on this website, very reasonably priced at $2.99.  I feel that this tribe has some connection with the lost tribe of Israel.



Our 4 Musicals: a 2 Year Pregnancy for Each

Our 4 Musicals: a 2 Year Pregnancy for Each. Quite frankly, if my wife and I were not together, we could not have written even one musical as well as we did. All 4 actually saw full production. The Princess and the Peasant and The Cup of Cleopatra have excerpts on our products page. For those who have not motivated enough to click on them; we offer the following:

  • Authentic Russian folk dancing done by the principle dancers, at the time, of the Sarasota Ballet. The packed house goes wild on this youtube version you can click on!
  • Rubinoff and His Violin (The violin belonged to Czar Nicolas of Russia before Rubinoff purchased it in 1929) playing his Dance of the Russian Peasant  as a picture book unfolds about his life and the association of Sharon and myself with Rubinoff.  The violin was appraised for 5 million; but he plays it so well, it sounds like 10 million!
  • If you go to the website’s opening page, we have a thumbnail of our(Rubinoff and myself)  concert in New York during a tremendous thunderstorm as Rubinoff is about to part the Red Sea with his virtuosity at age 86. He was virtually blind; and you feel like you are witnessing a miracle when you listen to him.
  • On the Elizabeth of Russian  products page (now the Princess and the Peasant) there is no shortage of concertmasters who would do anything who have played this violin after his passing away. His lovely now deceased wife, Darlene would fly it in from Houston out of the kindness of her heart any time we wanted it played by a willing concertmaster.

As I like to limit the words in a blog, I will have more shows up at a future date for your reading and listening pleasure. As is historically accurate (read Riane Eisler’s The Chalice and the Blade), there tends to be more harmony and peace when women run the show- I not saying that men can’t also do a great job. In the meanwhile, enjoy the music, pictures and story.

  We need angels for a venue and financial backing
. The show presents a beautiful vision of Russian culture; while stressing the importance of love and compassion in human relations.  The music is replete with arias that find expression through beautiful melodies. A number of directors have called “The Drinking Song” on you tube above, a hit song.

The Princess and the Peasant (New Operetta Version of Elizabeth of Russia)


(a new version of Elizabeth of Russia)

Book and Lyrics by Sharon Lesley    Music by David Ohrenstein

Musical operetta in Two Acts

The content  is about one year in the life of party-girl Elizaveta Petrovna – daughter of Czar Peter I and Empress Catherine I.  When Elizabeth gets backed into a corner and faces the possibility of being arrested and possibly executed along with her friends and the man she loves for supposed treason – all because of the beautiful gown she wore to a party, Elizabeth has three choices.  She can go to a nunnery, marry a German Prince, or take the throne which is legally hers.   To protect her love Alexei, a peasant she has secretly married, she knows what she must do.  Yet, she pauses because she does not want to have to be like other royalty .  She asks, “Can a ruler rule without killing anyone?”  Alexei replies, “It must be possible.”  She vows to God that, if she is successful, she will abolish executions and avoid war.  She leads the Preobrazhensky Guards to the palace on the one condition that no one is to draw blood.  Her overthrow is bloodless and a new Empress is crowned.

Happy Birthday to the Musical Capricorn!


Capricorn2.jpgHappy Birthday to Musical Capricorns! (Dec 21-Jan 19). What you are about to read is an excerpt from my upcoming book entitled Music Under the Zodiac (with the 100 other projects I have on the drawing board). I have learned the virtue of patience and hard work (which is a trait of Capricorn) from the saying of the ancient Romans: :”Rome wasn’t built in a day.” That frame of mind allows me to continue the work.

In the book, I define the musical traits of each zodiac sign first as a listener and then as a performer. Enjoy!:


(1) As a listeners: Capricorns usually do not prefer overly fast and happy, bubbly music unless they have other influences in their charts.  They affirm slower music with meaningful content.When they listen to music, they both notice and enjoy the over all form that structures the content. When lyrics appeal to Capricorn it is  for its solid message; rather  that than for innovation. Novelty is not high on the list of preferences, Even when the style of composing and writing changes at the forefront, Capricorn will still prefer the establish, older style. For example, in the 1950’s Capricorn would listen to big band music and shun the new Rock and Roll.


(2) As a performer: Instruments preferred include low sounding brass instruments such as the tuba, trombone or baritone. Percussion likes may include timpani and the deeper sounding drums. Musically, Capricorn strives for interpretation that follows  tradition and pursues accuracy in playing. Inventive and novelty are generally shunned. Playing with a group in a structured setting or being a conductor are both acceptable to the Capricorn. As a soloist, Capricorns would benefit by  cultivating more color and flare in performance; while lightening up on thoughtful restraint of emotion.

Conclusion: Although no sign is totally “one way”, so to say; the above just points to general tendencies. Keep checking for its publication on this website (dsoworks.com) of my book, Music Under the Zodiac. Realistically,  think it could still take another 3 or 4 months.


Comparing the Great Pyramid and the Piano


teclado de piano: piano de Gand aislado en un fondo blanco
The vibrations per second of various octaves of “A” on the piano duplicate the numbers of the dimensions of the Great Pyramid of Egypt by cubits (1.718 feet/cubit)

Comparing the Great Pyramid and the Piano. Why is it that musicians have a knack for numbers? The piano is perhaps best described as the mother of all musical instruments for the following reasons:

  • In and of itself, the piano is often described as a stringed instrument, yet:
  • Hammers actually come up to hit the strings so it is also a percussion instrument
  • It virtually contains the range of the entire orchestra in its span of 88 keys.
  • Regardless of the instrument that a student may play, the piano is often recommended as a starting point for musical study.

So how are we Comparing the Great Pyramid and the Piano? Through the range by vibrations per second of the various “A”s on the piano and the shorter Egyptian cubit which equals 1.71818…feet.

  • The “A” above middle “C” vibrates 440 times per second as one side of the square base of the Great Pyramid measures 440 cubits.
  • As the square based has a perimeter of 1,760 cubits, the “A” two octaves higher than the previous “A” just described  vibrates 1,76o times per second.
  • The “A” three octaves lower that the 440 A vibrates at 55 times per second. That defines one Great Cubit   
  • The lowest note on the piano vibrates to 27.5 times per second. The height of the truncated Pyramid (it is missing the 5 cubit tall tip) is 275 cubits.

When you study piano, are you calling on the numbers of the Great Pyramid of Egypt? Is that why music and numbers have a close association in the brain? Whatever the connection, the force is with you when you play piano. I have a couple of openings for piano lessons in Sarasota; however, as I’m currently working full time in Boca Grande at the Gasparilla Inn as their pianist my availability is quite limited. Call for reservations at this five star restaurant and resort to hear me play their vintage Steinways for my 7th straight year. Oh yes, I almost forgot, one more Egyptian connection:Thoth, the Egyptian Mercury, has a numerical equivalent of 88 which is the  number of keys on on piano. Join the force of the Great Pyramid and play the piano; or just listen to the music at the Gasparilla Inn.

gasparilla inn
The Gasparilla Inn is the location of Paradise within another Paradise: Florida in the winter. It is old Florida at its best. Through March 27, 2016, I will be playing six nights weekly on their wonderful Steinway, vintage grand pianos from their banner days of the 1920’s. For the finest rooms, food,  service, and pretty good piano playing; come in and say, hello- David

The Stamping Mill of the Universe

Musical tones come from this basic number square and is a Universal constant

Henry David Thoreau

“I do believe in simplicity. It is astonishing as well as sad, how many trivial affairs even the wisest thinks he must attend to in a day; how singular an affair he thinks he must omit. When the mathematician would solve a difficult problem, he first frees the equation of all incumbrances, and reduces it to its simplest terms. So simplify the problem of life, distinguish the necessary and the real. Probe the earth to see where your main roots run. ”
Henry David Thoreau
The Stamping Mill of the Universe is the above number puzzle. It is the smallest number square that can be constructed where the numbers have the same total whether they added vertically, horizontally or diagonally three numbers at the time.  The total is always 15. In this form, the number pattern is freed, as my favorite philosopher Thoreau states,  from all incumbrances. What you are about to read is an excerpt from my book, The Staff of God, vol. II about how various civilizations around the world used this tiny balanced number grid for their engineering projects. I think I am one of the first to rediscover the use of this grid. My source for the various cultural measures is Historical Metrology by  A.E. Berriman. Here is the reference to my work that I wrote in iambic pentameter.

The Stamping Mill of the Universe: Gnomons and Corners of the Square of Three

A gnomon is the part of the geometrical figure that remains after the corner 4 numbers are removed.  In the above number square, 4,9,3,5 is the upper left corner. The gnomon that remains is defined by 2,7,6,8,1. One Irish mile = 6,720 feet. The product of 2 x 7 x 6 x 8 x 1 = 672.   672 x 10, the characteristic number of this square (any 2 opposite numbers total 10). We arrive at the number of feet in the Irish mile: 6,720.

The Welsh civilization (on the neighboring island), use the gnomon  located on the upper right corner. The corner is defined by 9,2,5,7. When we multiply the numbers of its gnomon: 4 x 3 x 1 x 8 x 6 = 576.  Then 576 x 10 =  5,760 ; the number of feet in the Welsh mile.

The foot is not an anachronism. Samples of a cubic inch of gold for weight measures from Egyptian, Greek and Babylonian civilizations are to be found at the British Museum. The 12 edges of the cube total 1 foot as its 12 edges x 1 inch/edge = 12″ or an English foot. In a blog where I’m limited to 500 words, this suffices. It puts the principle across that I elaborate on my Staff of God vol. II (Not yet available to the public). I have made a compendium of the correspondence of cultural measures derived from this balanced square. The point is, in one word, “balance.” Where there is balance, there is a lack of war, fighting and strife as no side gains the upper hand; they co-exist equal and in harmony like the scales of a balance.  Incidentally, gnomically dividing the square of three was a custom and an important aspect of the Arabic school of Jabirism. Jabir Ibn Hayyim traced it roots back to Hermes; and Hermes traced this custom back to Ariel. In conclusion, The Stamping Mill of the Universe is the smallest and most basic, balanced number square that can be constructed; and when any civilization is based on balance, peace and plenty become its fruit.

















What Grows From the Grain of Mustard Seed?


What Grows From the Grain of Mustard Seed? The question should be, what doesn’t grow from the grain of mustard seed?- referred to by Apostles in the New Testament.

Musical tones come from this basic number square and is a Universal constant

In Matthew 17:20 we find “And Jesus said to them… If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you.” So what is the “grain of mustard seed? The tiniest of seeds from which a gigantic plant grows. The quote perfectly describes the smallest number square that can be constructed that contains the following which is expressed in mathematical terms:

  • The pattern for the development of all the other number squares
  • Hidden number codes which were revealed by me by an American Indian female spirit from the Lennie Lenope tribe.  I believe the code unifies the cosmos on a large and small scale. My book of poetry, about the spiritual entity is called the Oquaga Spirit Speaks. It will be available as soon as my tiny staff is able to complete the editing and beautiful pictures to be added to the book.

Before beginning, I must say please stay with these blogs. I love the limited number of words that a blog may contain and certainly, God willing, everyone will get their turn. I will consider Judaism first. Moses, an Egyptian prince, learned of its secrets from the ancient Egyptian priests and used it to frame the Jewish religion. Here’s how it works:

  • As 5 is the core number of the grid, we have the five books of the Torah.
  • As any two opposite numbers on the perimeter total 10, the core of the Torah is the 10 Commandments
  • The shortest name of God is “Yah” spelled with the Hebrew letters yud and hei. The yud represents number 10 and the Hei represents the number 5. On the number grid, 10 + 5 =15. Thus the shortest name of God, Yah, is found in 8 different ways on this grid. Very Important: Number 8 is the Hebraic equivalent by its gematria (defined as the intrinsic interplay of letters and numbers in Hebrew by the same symbol) of the verb for love, Ahav. This says in no uncertain terms, the path to God is through this eightfold path of love.  Buddah called it “the eightfold noble path”
  • As the perimeter of numbers around number 5 totals 40; Moses acquired the  5 books of the Torah,  in 40 days and 40 nights- the time that the perimeter of the law was set.
  • As 15, by straight line, can be found on the square is 8 ways; and 8 x 15 = 120; Moses lived to be 120 years of age.

Conclusion: Peace and unity go together. I hope we can all be on this reasonable path.
