Pencil Queue Reminiscent Snows

Recommended Posts

Inspired by the second movement of. Messiaen's Quatuor pour la fin du temps, as well as my first time writing anything remotely in a modern style. Ternary form with a break in the B section returning to temporary traditional harmonies. An experiment in dissonance, bitonality, chromaticism, and quintal harmonies. And yes the English is bad for a reason. Comments and critique welcome!

Hi

Great effort here. Using two pianos is ambitious. There are a lot of good ideas. Sometimes we may think that all the contemporary techniques go together well, however, it is important to know what systems make soft transitions to others, for example bitonality to quintal harmony, or whatever. Because if we use them one after the other with no care of that, the result is abrupt. It is also possible to superimpose harmonic systems (at the same time) in what is called harmonic layers.
