Thank you for the feedback Ken.
A passepied was a French dance used in a lot of baroque suites. It's usually a light dance in a quick 3/8 time. It has been used a few times by more recent composers (Debussy, Stravinsky, Satie) in suites of music.
I wanted to use a baroque dance as the basis for this piece because I had been studying the Bach partitas. I just arbitrarily chose a passepied.
Just what is a Passepied? Satie wrote one but it sounds very different than this, which is pretty and sounds Irish or Appalachian to my ears. It would be nice to hear a real fiddle play this, but using my imagination I got where you were going. Ending on the Dominant was clever and somehow satisfying.
Thank you, Sojar Voglar! I studied the Hindemith's Sonata for trumpet and Piano in my Graduation in composition, I think this piece influence me too much to compose this sonatina. Do you have some piece for trumpet and piano? If, yes, I would like to listen. Abraço!
At the very bottom of the webpage (you may have to minimize the chat bar), you will see "Theme", right next to the "Contact Us" link. Click on "Theme", and a popup box should appear. You can choose the Blue Theme, in which you can then start testing the JPlayer to see if that fixes the issues with Safari.
