Canon No. 3 for harpsichord

Timothy Speer

Recommended Posts

You try to combine an 'old' yet still frequently applied technique with contemporary elements.
I really appreciate this, but to be honest it does not have much success for me.
I think the power of counterpoint is to combine 'logical' melodies that can thus be remembered and recognised very well.
In other words, the melodies I would like to see do not sound random, but the audience can expect where the melody goes to.

In my opinion, your melodies are pretty random, which can be beautiful though, but in this canon it does not work.
I am sorry to say.

In conclusion, the idea is great, but the implementation does not lead to a succesful piece of music.
