Trio for Violin, French Horn and Piano


Recommended Posts

A very short piece (I'm wondering if I could make it longer) for Violin, French Horn and Piano.

In the opening, when the piano comes in with the quarter note then the four eighth notes, it sounds quite awkward. After that, the next 2 bars sounds like the beginning of a sequence that was never used to it's full extent. Perhaps continuing with two more bars before moving on it necessary to secure a better grounding. The whole piece has a very baroque feel to it (correct me if I'm wrong). Some of the bars have "incorrect" harmonic progression (such as bar 6 with the descending eighth notes in the violin and piano. Add more embellishments, a longer development before jumping into 4/4 and perhaps ever split it up into two parts (that was very common back then: think about prelude and fugues).

It is quite 'eastern' at the start. I think you used a harmonic minor at the start. I don't quite like the harmony though.


To extend and develop, you can do an inversion of the melody, augmentation and diminution, embellish with a few trills or turns. 


Hope to see an extended version of this piece! Hope it is rather more exciting to hear.
