Composing an effective melody is not an easy thing to do. Even for the best writing a melody can be a daunting task. But I believe it's an important skill for any composer to have, so this is the chal

Can we all agree now that the deadline is the day after whenever I submit mine? :P

Wow... what's not to like about this recording??   Great job! I'm speechless, you've played it wonderfully! The melodies and nuances were perfectly executed, and it was a pleasure to listen - especi

It was a joy to listen to.

 

Meh.

 

Bob's music feels like it wants to be romantic, but the emotional impact isn't robust or clear enough to keep it from falling flat so the effect is cheesiness instead. I feel like if he were to spend another year or three agonizing over every single note until everything was just perfect this would be a very nice work.

 

Being said, he has a fairly good grasp for texture and form. More so than I do most likely. If only it didn't sound like bad tv music.

 

The performance sounds solid, although I don't know about the sound quality. Could be my speakers, though. I don't have my headphones.

I'm glad you stated your opinion, but at this point it doesn't matter anymore. I personally enjoyed the piece and disagree with you, however I'm going to abstain from engaging in an argument with you because I've seen that it's something you enjoy doing.

There's nothing to argue about. I enjoyed the piece as well. I was giving Bob a review.

Congratulations Austenite and Sonataform for the winning piece and the performance!

 

An idea for your consideration: For future competitions, perhaps you might like to choose a 2nd place winner too and give them a performance and recording. I think it would reward another participant from the many non-winning ones, as well as motivate more - and possibly higher quality - participation in your competitions.
