Hey, how is everyone doing? Long time since I posted something here. (Also damn, this is my 200th post on this forum!) This time I bring you the result of a pretty interesting art trade I did where I had to compose a piece in a medieval style. Here you have the link: You have a commentary of the piece in the description of the video, and if you have any doubts just leave a comment here. I would appreciate any feedback, I hope you will like it or find it interesting. 🙂 Shares are appreciated too! If you want the final score here you have the link to my upload to Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/31566834/scores/6866952
I'm composing this piece for a challenge where the challenge is to compose a romantic piece(romantic in the sense of love, not necessarily the era). What I think about when I think about romantic love is a complicated process that starts with sudden desire(pickup in momentum in the cello leading to harmonization in sixths is what I did to try to get that across), a friendly stage with exchanges, a lot like a friendship but deeper(this is what I'm at now in my piece, an exchange of 2 motives between the flute's motive from the first theme and a second motive in the cello, like 2 people exchanging ideas and seemingly a state of agreement(acceleration towards the cadence in both motives)), a state of anger and not wanting to be with the other person, and a final calming realization phase when true love is reached. This fits well with Sonata Form and so my piece is probably going to end up in Sonata Form, just unconsciously, because of the associations with the start of a romantic relationship. And Flute and Cello are 2 of my favorite instruments. I can't say that I have a favorite woodwind though, they are all great, except maybe the Recorder. But the Cello is my favorite string instrument. Yes, I know, the flute motive slowly shifts across the beats of 4/4 in the first 10 bars. That metric shift just kind of naturally arised from me developing the motive into the flute dominant First Theme. I am stuck though at the cadence in the next 8 or 9 bars. It feels like the Cello wants to continue rising in pitch as does the Flute, as well as accelerate even further to the cadence. But I'm not sure what to do. It's mainly the Cello I am concerned about. It's approaching treble register pitch and the treble register is hard, even for an experienced cellist(Eb4 is not that far off from G4, the note at which I would consider possibly putting the cello in Treble Clef). Right away you might be like: to which I would be like: So, what do you think of my piece so far? Any advice regarding the acceleration to the cadence? Are the 32nds in the Cello motive too fast?
