Divertimento for String Ensemble, Op. 19 - I. Invention

Recommended Posts

With this piece, I wanted to explore the application of the five classical canons of rhetoric to music. These canons serve as an inspiration in some way to each of the movements; here, the first -- invention -- has its own form, and it also relates to "invention" in the musical sense, i.e. two-part counter-point (section F). It is also the literal act of producing material that can be used later in the work; I am still working on the following movements. Let me know your thoughts!

I only have heard like two of your posts here on the forums and I gotta say that you succsesfully mixed the "playful" melodic elements from the Classical period with contemporary harmony. Interesting and well done
