  2. Here you can find a performance: https://youtu.be/bYOygL7FOTo This is the score: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B41ecwRgLVAAMVJrZDJ6TURLeXhlLVZDQTh5Nk4zcUt5NGJJ/view?usp=drivesdk I like to hear what ye all think!
  3. Really nice, energetic and virtuosic at times, also lyrical. Have you ever composed a very slow piece, without virtuostic passages? I love you energetic and virtuosic parts, don't get be wrong, but to be creative in another way is always good for a composer. I noticed in another composition you posted you played also had virtuoso parts (east winds, great listening too!)
  4. Very nice. The first one really felt as a 'world-in-itself', it felt to be longer then one minute (that's really positive! It wasn't boring at all!)
  5. Thank you both for your comments! You're right Ken320 I'm stretching too much. Great idea about punctuation as fuel.
  6. Quite lovely! A trailer for a action or fantasy film? Something with a quest. 🙂
  7. Wonderful!! Be proud! Do know it's hard for the guitarist to be dynamically in balance with the piano.
  8. Yesterday and today I made a little musical joke called 'MIJN ellende'. Don't take it too serious :-) The melody is based on my own name, Jean Langlais made a system in wich you can interpret the letters of your name to notes. I also used a rhythm based on my the syllables name. My arrogance!! It's pretty dramatic and sentimental. Therefore I used some subtitles. In English they are: Bar 1 Misery on the day I was born Bar 11 Misery on the day of my first step Bar 21 Misery on the day of the start of my relationship Bar 26 Misery on the day of my marriage Bar 31 Oh! Miserable existence! I love you! Because misery is a consistent element throughout the piece its all the time more or less the same melody and rhythm. Do you think that works out good? (It's my name although it's not autobiographical in case you wondered)
  9. I don't like Alban Bergs violin concerto... The beginning I find ugly and boring. Just a bad start to begin a violin concerto. Berg never did it for me, none of his works. The strange thing is: I do like avant-garde music. I'm more of a Webern person. I'm neither a great fan of Berio. I should, I know... I like Nono more.
  10. You made me desire a big fat cigar... I like it. The line of the melody wasn't clear to me directly. But after hearing trice this isn't a problem for me anymore. The last chord came as a little surprise. 🙂
  11. Hi all, I try to add the PDF afterwards, it needs to be clean first. And I have it rather performed first... But here is the third part of 'And the ear brought forth'. Hope you like it and let me know. The principle of harmonic shifts is very simple but I think, in it's minimality, it works fine. Any advise is welcome!
  12. What a beauty! This lightens up my mood!
  13. I loved it! Why can't it last an hour? I would like to immerse mysel for a long time in this soundworld.
  14. Now I'm here in the process... Let me know what you think.
