Three Paintings, Op. 17

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

Here I have a set of three short "paintings;" music to me is very visual: the score, the composition, the sound (color). I found it important, however, that they not have any normative paintings in pairing, so as to allow the music to provide this suggestion, perhaps. Based upon the quality of each piece, I assigned a title to them each. I would love to know if there are improvements, especially notational ones in regard to the piano, that could be made to the score. To keep with the fluidity of the subject, the pedaling of the piano is meant to be frequent and hazy. Also, as for the third piece, suggestions on the long runs presented (e.g. playability).

 

Enjoy!

I love this pieces.

However, I think, aso you said, you must be careful with some, in my opinion, unplayable chords.

For example in II. Phantasm, the chords in bar 3 are not possible. You have to do the upper part with the right hand. If you would have written a cluster, I would say it's OK, but if there are "absent notes" ... For a cluster you have to include all the black notes, or all the white notes..., within an interval... Or ALL the notes.

B - C# - E - F# - G# - B ...... F#.... Only if you "roll" the notes you can play that, and the sound will be differete.

Thanks for the comment; always good to hear from you! Yeah, I figured it would be pretty apparent that those chords would be rolled, intuitively by the amount of notes, but probably better to specify anyway.

Thanks for the comment; I can't say I'm familiar with that one, but I will have to check it out!
