Hi all,

Today, I finished this Melody for solo Piano. I am trying to develop my own ''voice'' and ''identity'' in music composition and I think I am on the right way...
As the title is called, the inspiration of this composition is the Winter. Of course in the Dutch style: ice skating, Unox sausage, Boerenkool etc.

Feedback and comment would make my Winter even better!

Kind regards,

Maarten

I wish my piano and 20th century theory skills were better--tried playing my way through this and it helped me understand what you were doing. A nice piece, short and sweet and light--like a salad.

You should consider composing a suite based on the seasons to accompany this one :)

This is nice enough, but so short. It didn't really have much of a chance to go anywhere. I mean, it sounds like a prelude. No real high points or notable moments, just some brief ideas stated once.

This deserves more.

Thank you Gustav! I am glad you like it.

I like your "salad" idea. Very interesting comparison. Haha!

Maybe I should indeed try to compose a suite... Stay tuned.

Ik proef echt de vorming van ijskristallen in dit stuk! erg interessant en de moeite waard!

 

Dankjewel! Ik ben blij dat de muziek het beeld bij de Hollandse winter ondersteunt.

Thank you for your feedback. 

I receive the 'development feedback' from many other composers and then I answer them that I am afraid of "overdeveloping" the music. 

When I write a suite, this piece will certainly be the prelude.

Hi Maarten,

If you're getting multiple composers telling you they want to hear more development in your music, take it as a compliment. We want you to explore your ideas because we're interested in seeing where they go.

This is underdeveloped. That's the opposite of overdeveloped.
