    Hmm what is the string piece that you derived this piece from?
  2. Why the name bloodstained though? Not that tragic enough sadly...
  3. 26 Minuets for the Piano-V.mp326 Minuets for the Piano-V.mp3Hi. It has been long since I have posted or visited this site, because I was very busy. I have, meanwhile, started a set of compositions called '26 Minuets for Piano'. Why 26, if you ask, if there are only 24 major and minor keys? Well, the other two are whole-tone and 12-tone. This task is quite challenging, and I have only managed to complete at least about 60% of it. Progress has been quite slow recently as I still have other stuff. Any feedback and comments are appreciated. (By the way, the harmonies are still like sh*t so please forgive me for that). I will add the reflections and explanations for each piece in the future once I had finished everything. Note: I am still deciding between two versions for VI (B minor). The first short one is rather contemporary while the 2nd one is rather more baroque. The VI is meant to be fugal by the way. Incomplete: VI (still making a decision), VII ( I am still revising the first section), XVI, XXVI

    Trio for Violin, French Horn and Piano

    It is quite 'eastern' at the start. I think you used a harmonic minor at the start. I don't quite like the harmony though. To extend and develop, you can do an inversion of the melody, augmentation and diminution, embellish with a few trills or turns. Hope to see an extended version of this piece! Hope it is rather more exciting to hear.

    String Quartet no. 1 (Began writing on Nov. 2)

    For me, I like neo-classicism. I am interested in 20th century music. The String Quartet is quite nice, with the nice bass played by the viola.

    8 Pieces for Solo Piano

    I should say, the Minuet is nice to hear despite its simplicity. The prelude is quite emotional. The 'March' is not really a march. A March has a steady rhythm

    Vivace in C# minor

    I had made the sound better. No._1_1.mid

    First Proper Orchestral Piece

    The ostinato could be cut down more as it is boring for more than 4 bars. Add some percussion to the piece too to add some bang to the piece! Also, can you adda score? However, it is still nice to hear with the ostinato and light melody by the flutes.

    Moment Musical in F minor

    A nice variation of the original! Though I wish it is slightly faster. The staccato reflects the light mood to the piece.

    feedback needed - prelude

    Quite nice! Though I wish there's a pdf score.

    Allegro for String Quartet in F major

    A quite modern piece to hear. It is actually to montonous for me with little tension, although the semiquavers for the strings is quite interesting.
  12. A bit too much dissonances for me for violins, though I liked 20th century pieces besides classical music.

    Prelude 1 op.2

    A semi-classical yet Impressionistic piece to be appreciated. Nice work.

    Short piano study

    A nice piano study which is modern in style. Where's the score though.
