"Prairie Games" from Songs for the Open Prairie

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, sorry for not posting recently. I've just moved to start going to school for organ performance, but I've been getting back into composing over the past weeks. Here's a project I've started and finished during that time.

You try to do a lot in two minutes... which is a shame, since some of these ideas are really good, but you don't have enough evidence to prove that they're a unit, or even their own thing. It falls in this strange middle ground.
In slower parts, I admire your attempt to always have a moving line to keep the pulse, but sometimes it's too explicit. Let things grow.
Also, don't be afraid to add slurs to all your parts. They make a huge difference in performance... a doo-wap vs. dot dot.

I would personally start the piece with the bassoons playing the theme, and use the horns when it comes back later. The ending is quite abrupt, but the themes sound good, and there's some nice building up at 1:25.
