    Andante For Strings in C# Minor

    Q: How did you create the video for it?
  2. HI y'all, Here's my current scenario for everyone out there: I have a Asus Microsoft laptop running windows 10 OS and Finale 25, and I want to know what is the best way I could do create a music score video using a freeware software that allows to download the PGNS files and the .wav file with out cutting it off at the end, for that is what movie maker seems to do. Or how can I use movie maker effectively when do that?

    Concerto for Saxophone and Concert Band

    @MeisterSegarra To me this sounds like one of the banderberg concerto by Bach but for concert band and solo saxophone. The harmonic language is spit on with what Bach and his competmaries would have use: simple diatonic harmonic progressions with a strong I-V polarization, and a pinch of chromaticism for flavor. When it comes to thematic material and development, the period structure is well established and themes are clear and easy to hear. The form is not exactly what a modern concerto is, today, but it reflects what was written back then: the main group of instruments start and then the soloist plays after it. Very much like concerto Grassi form. The orchestrations, too, display late barque-early classical setting, expect for concert band. In other words, you adapted a classical form for modern ensemble and it passed with flying colors. Bravo.

    Prelude No. 4 for Guitar - "Aurora"

    @Monarcheon: I have rather enjoyed this prelude. Thematic material with strum like patterns comes out rather nicely. It definitely reminds me of a waltz...

    Masterclass: THEORY 203 - Introductory Polychords

    Would this naturally lead into bi/poly tonality?
  6. @bryla It is a miss quote. Your piece is no epic that should be put place store in place where people can hear ages. Schoenberg did not actually say that, but Indiania Jones said always said that about it relics: This should be belong in a museum. Your piece reminded of those movies.
  7. I, too, have a sense that this should belong in a museum ~Schoenberg.
  8. I have title this topic "the strange case of Sergei Prokofiev" because it appears that we can no longer download free scores written by him anymore. Yes. That is right. ISPM seems to be in the battle of wits with Schimer. I ask why this simple question: Should public domain public works, which are no longer in printer, be taken down from sites like that? And what's your take on this current issue?

    Composition Feedback

    To me, this sounds like an track I would here from an adventure movie. Definitely from a certain Japanese composer...
  12. Yes, indeed. I can clearly hear it his style echo this work. Great job! Emulating styles is the best place to start when you are fresh and new. Later, you will devople your own, and his style might sept back in, but not in full force.

    Enough people?

    For me, it depends on the topic and the teacher. 🙂

    Enharmonic Spelling

    I am agree with Monarcheon here, and here's why: En harmonics affect the architectonic relationship that individual harmonies have. Certain harmonies are classified as "Vagrant". Meaning, they have no clear interpretation in music. That is mainly due because of they construction and their function. A German augment 6th can also be used a artificial dominant of the Nepolian region. That is to say it is V/bII6 leading to bII6. That same chord can also function as diminished 7th chord on A, if you lower the Ab to A natural and respell the F# to Gb. Therefore, in the key in the key of e minor, the tone B-flat/A-sharp is not general used in that minor, unless there is a harmony that does use it. Meaning, that tone is not a diatonic tone but would be a chromatic one.
