"Promenade" for cello

Recommended Posts

Good morning (at least where I live┬á­čśů)┬á­čÖé

I wanted to try to write something for cello solo, with the (I'd say rather poor) knowledge I have of the instrument.

Here's the result :

I enjoyed the overall lyricism of this piece. At times, like m. 20, I found myself wanting a bit more rhythmic variety, so as to generate a bit more propulsion in the overall line. I can also envision a fuller, even stronger close to the piece (maybe more complete chords, though of course be cautious with playability/indication). In general, I thought it to be a great start, and I can see it going in a lot of different ways in the future (if you add to it)!

Very nice melody. I like it.

I'm not an expert either, but it sounds natural for the cello to my ears. Harmony is well defined with arpegiated chords.

If I had to comment on something you could try it is this: suspensions. With this evocative melody (and in general) suspenden notes on endings, for example, make it more interesting.

When the final note, or the target note, is delayed you have a suspension if the preceding note is upon the final note, or a retardationretard.mp3 if the precending note comes from below.
