So exciting! I can only imagine how satisfying it must be to finally hear your piece played by a real ensemble. I sincerely hope it gets chosen for a premiere, and I'll be holding on to whatever chance we have of hearing a full performance.
There's a lot of really cool writing in this one. The quintuplet brackets were a strange choice to me, but I can see where you're coming from. I absolutely loved the bass one though; the ending was perfect. Have you heard Schnitkke's 1st Concerto Grosso? It reminded me of a bass version of that ending and I love that one too.
Hi, here are five canons that I wrote as birthday presents for friends over the course of spring. Please excuse my performance, as I'm not really a saxophonist, nor a violist, nor a singer (I am amazed at how well the canon I composed for myself went though, as I only started rehearsing it the night before).
Just an update regarding this competition. The judges are almost done with scoring and reviewing and the results will be posted this Friday! I will compile and post the scores/reviews in another thread (a link will be provided).
In the meantime, keep an eye out for our fall competition guidelines, which I will be posting in the next few days! If anyone has any suggestions for future competitions, please let me know (or post them on the gazillion threads here).
